Hike Around Herne Bay

Posted by Caz on Wednesday, 2nd July 2014

The second pier in my Kentish adventure after Gravesend Town was Herne Bay on the northern coast. The current pier is the third incarnation on the site, but is now a shadow of its former self, having mostly destroyed by a storm in 1978. There are plans afoot to revamp the pier, which we can hope will come to fruition in the near future.

During my visit, there was no cake available, but I did manage to find a tasty plate of chips at a cafe overlooking the pier on the prom.

Still Band-Standing In Weymouth

Posted by Caz on Friday, 13th June 2014

After visiting the Pleasure Pier in Weymouth, my next stop of the day was a mile or so round the Bay to the Bandstand Pier. It is much truncated from its heyday, but still retains a little of its former Art Deco splendour.

Out front is a café and beach supplies shop which provided me with a tasty lemon tart and cuppa in a lovely seaside-themed mug.
