Description

Herne Bay

Like so many towns and villages of Kent, Herne Bay began as a haunt for smugglers, but gradually gained popularity as an alternative fashionable bathing resort to Margate. In the 1830’s, visionary entrepreneurs spotted Herne Bay’s empty beaches and passing paddle steamers full of tourists from London on their way to Margate. The town’s first pier was created, the steamers stopped, hotels were built and Herne Bay prospered.

The town’s best known landmark, illustrated here, is its clock tower which, when built in 1837, was the tallest free-standing one in the world.
