Why Move to Herne Bay
Taking its name from the neighbouring village of Herne, Herne Bay is a pretty seaside town with an estimated population of 39,000 people which in the gorgeous county of Kent.
Just consisting of a few cottages and inns inhabited mostly by fishermen, there was little development until the 1830’s when several investors grouped together and saw the little village had great potential. A pier and promenade were built and became the catalyst for Herne Bays’ rapid expansion, attracting plenty of wealthy Victorian holiday makers.
The town has changed a lot since its early days. The wide pedestrianised shopping area offers an interesting mix of cafés and restaurants, with a selection of independent shops alongside well-known chain stores. The towns Saturday market is very well attended, selling all sorts of products including food and clothing.
A number of open spaces and parks are scattered throughout the town posing attractive places to wander or exercise. Herne Bay’s seafront is home to the world’s first freestanding purpose-built Clock Tower, built in 1837. Famous for its sunsets, its vast beaches, and for being one of the sunniest and warmest places in the UK.
