Local Area

Nestled amongst the Blue Flag beaches of the traditional English seaside town of Broadstairs in Kent, Chaucer College Kingsgate could not be situated in a better location.
With award-winning beaches, Joss Bay and Viking Bay, only ten minutes walk away and the golf course next door, our College lies in a tranquil and safe location. At the end of a hot day, many residents find it is a great idea to walk to the beach and relax, stroll or swim on these beautiful, sandy beaches. Alternatively, you can visit Broadstairs’ unique high street and independent shops, all on your doorstep and within walking distance of the College.
For those who like to travel, there are nearby bus stops taking you directly to neighbouring Ramsgate, Margate and historic Canterbury. It really is the perfect place to study, relax and explore.
Fifteen minutes away by bus in another famous seaside town Margate. It is home to the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery and a retro shopping area just near the beach. J M Turner painted many of his sunsets here. Ramsgate is also only twenty minutes by bus. With its beautiful harbour and classic Victorian houses, it is well worth visiting during your stay.

Fantastic Fast Rail Links to the Capital
