Herne Bay today

Does anyone know of any café, pub or restaurant in Herne Bay that has a view that would be good for sketching from?

It was too windy to sketch outside today and I just couldn’t find anywhere inside to sketch from, so no sketch.

Some interesting shops still trading in Herne Bay

Including a toy shop

I bought a few books for my bookshop


  1. There is that icecream parlour stroke coffee shop on the front which might be good for sketching (depending on what it was you wanted to sketch). There is a bandstand bit and I think one side looks out to sea.

  2. Joe I guess I should have made myself more clear here, what I wanted to do was draw a picture that would be identifiable as Herne Bay, so the view has to be something that most people who know Herne Bay would be able to identify. I think now the there is no building on the pier this would be either the bandstand or the clock tower.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
