This panorama was taken from the opposite cliffs above The Captain Digby Inn at Kingsgate Bay, Broadstairs, Kent.
Kingsgate Castle was built for Lord Holland (Henry Fox, 1st Baron Holland) in the 1760s. The name Kingsgate is related to an incidental landing of Charles II on 30 June 1683 (‘gate’ referring to a cliff-gap) though other English monarchs have also used this cove, such as George II in 1748. The building was later the residence of John Lubbock, 1st Baron Avebury. The building has now been converted into 31 flats.
The large white building in the hollow was originally Holland House, also built for Lord Holland, was in the shape of Tully’s Formian villa on the Bay of Baiae, Italy and was once filled with many objects including antiquities from Egypt.
