Broadstairs for my 25th

I'm considering a trip to Broadstairs over the weekend for my 25th birthday and I was wondering what sort of things there are to do there. I also wanted to know where else in Kent people would recommend for a group of friends in their 20's.

Broadstairs is a pretty place with nice "seaside" sandy beaches and cliff/coastal walks, but not a lot else....

If you like a classic cafe this might work...

Well, Broadstairs is lovely (IMO) and might suit...

However, also IME, it is somewhat staid, so if you want a lively place, with clubs'n'pubs, try elsewhere....

Broadstairs is relatively small but has a suprisingly high concentration of good restaurants, pubs and bars all close together so I would say go for it. The weekend after (Oct 3rd-5th) is the Food Festival weekend which takes over the seafront and can get crazy busy, so this weekend coming (sept 26-28) would be a good choice to avoid those crowds. If you run out of things to do, try a train trip into Canterbury (coincedentally has a Food Festival this coming weekend)

Just seen that trains between Margate and Minster, via Broadstairs and Ramsgate, have a rail replacement bus service this weekend due to engineering works, so a train trip into Canterbury might not be such a fun idea after all.
