Welcome to the Hampton Inn, Herne Bay

Hampton-on-Sea's only surviving building

The Hampton Inn is almost all that remains of Hampton-on-Sea, a village near Herne Bay on the north Kent coast, engulfed by the sea and abandoned at the turn of the 20th century.

Formerly known as the Hampton Pier Inn and likely to date back to the building of the pier in the 1860s by The Herne Bay, Hampton and Reculver Oyster Fishery Company, the Hampton Inn has survived when all around was washed away by coastal erosion.

As a result, the uninterrupted views from the pub and its garden provide an almost 360 degree vista and vantage point for viewing the most spectacular sunsets, bringing in many visitors to enjoy a great pint while gazing out to sea.
