Herne Bay

Administrative Port: Hastings
County: Kent
Population: 38563

Herne Bay is a seaside town in Kent, South East England. The town began as a small shipping community, receiving goods and passengers from London en route to nearby Canterbury and Dover. The town rose to prominence as a seaside resort during the early 19th century after the building of a pleasure pier and promenade by a group of London investors, and reached its heyday in the late Victorian era. Its popularity as a holiday destination has declined over the past decades, due to the increase in foreign travel and to a lesser degree exposure to flooding that has prevented the town's redevelopment.[1]
