The Shopping Experience in Broadstairs

This page is no longer active

This is a list of some of the shops in Broadstairs and more will be added over time as photos are taken. You can see that there is a very wide range of traders selling everything from gifts to clothes to food & drink. It is a real eclectic mix and well worth a walk around the town when you visit.

I have set these shops in categories and they are listed alphabetically. Websites or email contacts will be shown where they exist. The image can be clicked on to show a larger version. All images are copyright of Stuart Rogers.

If anyone would like their establishment added to the listings please email me the details.

For somewhere to eat please see the Food & Drink page.

There is a new kind of virtual shopping experience locally where local traders can supply goods via internet orders. Take a look at Shop on Your Doorstep.

Categories are:- Antique shops Art Galleries Beach Goods Book shops Craft shops Fashion shops Gift shops Hardware shops Health shops Hobbies Newsagents Off Licenses Pet shops
