As traditional as fish and chips by the coast, Herne Bay represents all the charm of the British seaside and a stroll along the front will take you to one of only two piers in Kent.

Two miles of glorious beach are packed with enough traditional seaside trappings to make a perfect family day out. What seaside resort would be complete without ice creams and fish chips? You’ll find plenty of candy floss stalls, ice cream parlours, friendly cafes and pubs along the front, not to mention the beautiful beaches which create a perfect backdrop to sit and soak up the views.

Better still, you’ll find a visit to Herne Bay puts you right in the centre of the 6.7 mile Oyster Bay trail, so choose between pedalling up the shore towards the iconic Reculver Towers or across to peaceful Swalecliffe.
