Broadstairs is a coastal town on the Isle of Thanet in the Thanet district of east Kent, England, about 80 miles (130 km) east of London. It is part of the civil parish of Broadstairs and St Peter's, which includes St Peter's, and had a population in 2011 of about 25,000. Situated between Margate and Ramsgate, Broadstairs is one of Thanet's seaside resorts, known as the "jewel in Thanet's crown". The town's crest's Latin motto is Stella Maris ("Star of the Sea"). The name derives from a former flight of steps in the chalk cliff, which led from the sands up to the 11th-century shrine of St Mary on the cliff's summit.

Over the years my kids have visited Revolution many times. From skateboarding, to BMX to wall climbing. It’s always been fantastic and somewhere they always wanted to go back to. We have had parties there too and again brilliant. Very recommended ????

Houdini’s Magic Bar a place out of the ordinary! A little bit quirky and a lot Magical! Every evening you are invited to join us, settle in and experience Miracles of Magic whilst enjoying great drinks and great company. See shows, close up and exclusive performances by our Resident Magician’s, many of whom are members of the prestigious Black Card Club and Magic Circle. Houdini’s Magic Bar first opened in the Dickensian town of Broadstairs in 2016. It is a warm and welcoming place to come and enjoy fine refreshments and is home to some of Kent’s finest Magicians. We are proud to have won Newcomer of the Year 2017 in the Kent Life Food and Drink Awards. Houdini’s now has a second bar in Canterbury, both Magic Bars celebrate all that is Magic and the interiors lend themselves to a whole manner of Magic curiosities. All of customers are welcomed to while away the hours with us in a bar like no other! Come in for a catch up, play a board game or two and enjoy live Magic.
Visited Houdini’s in the evening at the beginning of December. Broadstairs was fairly quiet when we went for a meal and had a look at a few other bars along the high street. But Houdini’s had a fair few people in and a great atmosphere. So we’re pleased that we decided to spend our evening here. There was a fantastic magician walking around doing card tricks and he then later done a show. Through the night there was a compere doing competitions and telling jokes. The bar staff was also very friendly and told us the history about the cranberry gin we were drinking. Me and my partner like to look for niche and different bars. And we will definitely be returning to Houdini’s.

This beach is wonderful all year round but during the summer season it is especially interesting. There are activities for younger children, for example, bouncy castles, swingboats, a vintage roundabout and Punch and Judy Show. There is also a watersports school offering surfing, stand-up paddling and kayaking for older children and adults. There are lots of cafes on the beach and around the promenade. It is a really traditional English seaside resort - quaint, charming and very photogenic!
