In a real boost for the local region, leading travel guide Frommer’s has named the Kent coastline among the top twelve destinations for holiday makers in 2011. Putting the Kentish seaside up there with the likes of leading holiday destinations such as Rio De Janeiro in Brazil and Stockholm in Sweden, our local seaside towns are now a must-see destination. What better place to come and learn English, whilst experiencing all the region has to offer?
The Frommer’s travel guide highlights the choice of beautiful beaches, bustling independent shops, boutique hotels and quality restaurants on offer in coastal Kent. The traditional attractions of seaside towns such as Whitstable, Ramsgate, and Broadstairs are all described - with their bracing cliff top walks, colourful beach huts and smugglers haunts. The guide also draws attention to some of the up and coming features on offer in these tourist towns, including the forthcoming Turner Contemporary gallery which is helping to regenerate the traditional holiday town of Margate and put Kent on the cultural map.
