    Hi

    Have a look at this link.

    Motorhome Friendly and Unfriendly Parking - Kent

    Broadstairs
    Parking is OK at the car park at the end of Vere Road (just off the A255) - no height restriction but I think that you have to pay the HGV rate of £6.00 for 4 hours. (Thanks very much to LM for this information, received 18 August 2008).

    We went to this car park a few weeks ago. It was off Peak, and we paid £1.70 (I think) for 24 hours, the only problem was that the 24 hour period ends at 7.00am!

    The car park ground was gravel, but good access to the town.

    We had a lovely time there, and the best fish and chips from the fish and chip inn, about 100 yds down from Vere Road on the right hand side.

    Hope this helps

    Nicholas

    what about the important bit of information , what time does the parking warden come on duty in the morning ? I always ask a local who comes in to park late in the day , and they always know :Laughing:

    personally I'm not up for leaving by 7am [ pun intended ]

    Thanks for the info, but I am really after caravan sites that take touring vans in the area, although the car parking could be a viable alternative.
    Cheers Paul.

    Hi paul
    There's nothing in broadstairs it's self unless you want to wildcamp.
    If you do then the western esplanade is used regularly from seapoint road onwards away from the town or joss bay is a nice clifftop car park that's quiet midweek.
    If it has to be a campsite then the nearest is at manston, though there is one in ramsgate but it's not all-that.
    If you want anymore info pm me, i work in thanet.


    regards...nige
