Kingsgate Bay in Broadstairs, once named Barthelmas Gate, was renamed to Kingsgate after the forced landing of King Charles II on 30 June 1683 on 'Kingsgate' Bay due to a storm. The Bay is a sheltered sandy cove backed by high white chalk cliffs. The beach is probably best known for its sea caves, which are reputedly some of the best in the country.
Overlooking the southern end of the beach is Kingsgate Castle, built in the 1760s for Lord Holland. At the other end is the Captain Digby public house, also built by Lord Holland. There is no parking at the bay, nearest is the Captain Digby public house or Joss Bay.

A few pictures taken at Eltham Palace on Monday.
Once a favoured medieval palace and then a Tudor royal residence, Eltham Palace was transformed into a striking Art Deco mansion by eccentric millionaires Stephen and Virginia Courtauld.
