1. Re: Any other nice towns

I gather you are preferring to travel by train, so Faversham is another 'nice' town that I recommend people visit. It's the stop after Whitstable on the train but totally different - it's not on the coast and has a very historic, pedestrianised town centre easily walkable from the train station, loads of pubs (including two micropubs) and a brewery.

www.faversham.org/visit_faversham.aspx has plenty of info

In the other direction between Broadstairs and Deal is Sandwich, an incredibly historic teeny-weeny little town like nowhere else in Kent for it's well-preserved old town.

I see you're already planning to visit Canterbury which is the other obvious choice.

Don't forget to check www.visitkentoffers.co.uk to check for 2 for 1 attraction offers in the places you might be visiting.

Rye is a bit further, but could be done, with a simple change of train at Ashford International - it's like Sandwich but better - more impressive and with more going on, in my opinion.

From previous posts I think LETITROCK has already considered Ramsgate and Margate.
