Second time in Broadstairs! And I have to say on the face of this visit that it has become one of my favourite seaside towns. The sun was glorious and the beach thronging with people. It’s one of the most Victorian of resorts and very well preserved. A delight.

Moving forward in time, somewhere you must check out is Oscars Festival Café on Oscar Road. Stumbled across it quite by accident whilst trying to find somewhere that would cater for the likes of us. Themed in a 1950’s Festival of Britain stylee there was plenty on offer including teacakes and lashings of ginger beer and on the day we arrived Graham, the Proprietor, and his waitress were really looking the part. If you love all things 2oth Century Modern get down there.

I don’t have a website address for the Café, but Graham Ward, the Proprietor, is also an artist who produces really lovely work. Check his stuff out here: grahamward.co.uk
