Best & oldest ice cream parlour in England! In 1932 the first Morelli's ice cream parlour which proudly presides over the beautiful and much-loved Viking Bay in Broadstairs, Kent, was opened, becoming the first ever to serve over 20 flavours of ice cream. This parlour still proudly serves loyal customers today and retains a magical feel of stepping back in time with its soda fountain, juke box, formica tops and pink leatherette booths, it is overwhelmingly nostalgic. 14 Victoria Parade, Broadstairs CT10 1QS

Entertainment & Activities

Bank Robbery Themed Escape Room based at The Counting House Bar on Broadstairs High Street. As the building was formerly an old bank, this is about as authentic as you’re going to get without doing time! The Bank Job is unusual in two ways. Firstly, the objective. In most escape rooms you are trying to get out, here you are trying to break in into a vault and steal a diamond! Secondly, the setting. No paper-thin walls, The Counting House is a former bank and you will be breaking into the original vault, complete with reinforced vault door, guard, and complex security system that you must overcome.

We love the Palace Cinema! From the outside you may wonder how the building can fit a cinema inside, but inside you discover a cosy foyer with popcorn, sweets and cold drinks as well as freshly brewed coffee. Step into the auditorium and you’ll find 111 comfortable seats (23 on the balcony, 88 in the stalls), plus the latest digital sound and projection technology, and a large screen that stretches the width of the building. The cinema has wheelchair and pram access, too. The Palace is different from the multiplex experience. It brings something personal to your evening out. It may have only one screen, but that doesn’t prevent it from showing a variety of the latest films, many unlikely to be showing anywhere else in Thanet. By selecting these great films – award-winners, audience favourites, critics’ choices – the Palace aims to be your ticket to the most entertaining and thought-provoking films on offer.

Discovered in 1835, Margate's Shell Grotto is an astonishing find; 21 metres of winding passages decorated with 4.6 million shells. The walls are covered in images of gods and goddesses, trees of life and patterns of whelks, mussels and oysters. Some think it is an ancient Pagan grotto, others that it is simply an ornate Regency folly; but with no definitive explanation or history, the Shell Grotto is Kent's greatest mystery.
