Review of Herne Bay by Sonya Lawrence on February 13th, 2006
Hi I live on the outskirts of Herne Bay. Its a great place to live and visit. Its a real working town and is really on the up. There are some lovely cafes and bistros and the Herne Bay Museum is really worth a visit.We also have proper old fashioned fruit & veg shops and some lovely bakers.Its not a pretentious town (you won't see many barber jackets) and you you'll be at home in you t-shirt, jns and fleece. Theres also a lot more parking than in Whitstable with a large car park in the centre. We do not suffer from the large groups of vandals that Whitstable suffers from either.(Something the estate agents dont let on as Whitstable is a lot more expensive)Also if your thinking of buying you can still get a bargain here wether its residential or commercial. On the safety side your more likely to get mowed down by a OAP reversing badly in his brand new jag than you are mugged. There is the Co-OP and Morrissons.ALso several chemists. People are very chatty and friendly as well. You can walk from town along the seafront to Reculver or the Towers. Bring your dog as its a lovely walk. Also you must visit the info centre on the front bandstand building. You'll be suprised that Herne Bay is a really nice working town.
On this day:
