Broadstairs Shopping Guide

(and nearby eating/drinking options)

Broadstairs is a lovely place to visit, but it is not really much of a shopping destination, unless you count the souless Westwood Cross on its outskirts.

Where to Shop

The following Map covers a selection of different types of  shops available in the town, including the ones described below.

Arrowsmiths is a lovely clothing and gift shop with a cavernous basement :-

The Chapel with its amazing selection of books and cider is well worth a visit.

I also really like the The Boathouse on the Broadstairs Jetty – this gift shop is in a great location just round the corner from Wyatt & Jones. It sells lots of quality seaside related gifts and cards.

If visiting shops check the opening times as they can change, especially in the Winter season.


Broadstairs town has a few smaller supermarkets like the Co-op, Londis and Budgins. The larger Supermarkets are at Westwood Cross – see Supermarket Map.
