Once the haunt of smugglers, later a fashionable Victorian watering place, Herne Bay today is an hospitable seaside town, with miles of safe beaches and good fishing and sailing water, eight miles north of Canterbury. Hooray for Herne Bay and traditional seaside holidays.
Strolling along the promenade, pausing for a while to enjoy a ‘Punch and Judy’ show, hunting for shells on the seashore - or just relaxing on the tranquil lawns of the seafront gardens. The Neptune’s Arm is a draw for both fishermen and small boat owners, not to mention admirers of beautiful sunsets over the bay.
