Broadstairs Off The Beaten Path: 11 reviews and 13 photos
Tucked away at the top end of the High Street is a great little place which should delight every man (or woman) who ever dreamed of being a train driver.
It is a museum about one Thomas Crampton, a local man who became famous in the 19th century for his work on railways. Additionally, he was responsible for other engineering works. The Crampton tower in the picture, was built by him as a water reservoir for the town. He also laid the first submarine telegraph cable from Dover to Calais.
The Museum itself is full of model railways and Crampton memorabilia.
It is open Easter to October from 1400 - 1700 every day. It also opens mornings during Folk Week. Admission £2 adults.
