Birchington-On-Sea is a pleasant village positioned on the North East Coast of Kent, and is home to over nine thousand people. Perfectly placed just 4 miles or so from Margate it has since the late 19th Century attracted holidaymakers and tourists. It has a rich history dating back three thousand years or so, from the early settlers who farmed the land, to the Romans who invaded our shores and settled nearby. Today's visitors can enjoy the sandy beach at Minnis Bay, or the three other beaches which are flanked by cliffs, and walkers will always be tempted by the coastal footpaths which overlook the North Sea. A stroll around the village will discover an interesting mix of architecture from across the years from the 13th Century Church which is dedicated to All Saints which is the final resting place of the Pre-Raphaelite Artist Dante Rossetti, to the houses whose underground network of tunnels were used by the Smugglers who lived here. There is a superb choice of pubs offering coffee or something stronger, together with restaurants which will suit most tastes, and close to the Square is Station Road just one of the choices for shopping in the largest village on the Isle of Thanet.
