Herne Bay

Herne Bay

Unspoilt and unassuming, Herne Bay relishes its enviable location on the glorious North Kent coast.

With its splendid seafront, beautifully restored bandstand, Victorian heritage, variety of local shops and glorious countryside, Herne Bay presents an unrivalled opportunity to sample the delights of an attractive seaside resort. Even the weather smiles on Herne Bay and it ranks high in national sunshine league tables.

It was a favourite with Victorians who founded the town and came to breathe in the health-giving air or bathe in its invigorating waters. Nowadays with its miles of safe beaches, wide promenade, seafront gardens and restored bandstand, it is enjoying a deserved renaissance.

National awards given by the Environmental Campaigns Group (ENCAMS) reflect the high standards of the local beaches. Central Beach has been granted a Resort Beach Flag for the fifth year and Herne Bay West, Tankerton and Reculver have Rural Beach awards.

Herne Bay Promenade

There is plenty to enjoy in Herne Bay - from listening to the band on a sunny Sunday afternoon to bargain-hunting in the local shops; from a morning's fishing to an exhilarating day's sailing; from uncovering history to exploring the coast and countryside.

Herne Bay Town Centre Management (HBTCM) is part of Canterbury City Council sitting within the Regeneration and Economic Development division.

Its aim is to develop an effective partnership between the public, private and voluntary sectors to promote Herne Bay as a safe and vibrant place in which to work, live and spend leisure time.
