Westgate-on-Sea is a charming Victorian town, steeped in Heritage with quaint shops and two fantastic blue flag beaches.
Just before the outbreak of the First World War, a Royal Naval Air Service Station, used by seaplanes was opened at St Mildred’s Bay (formerly Marsh Bay). Seaplanes took off from the sea itself and two slipways constructed for the seaplanes were used to convey the seaplanes from the hangers to the sea (and vice versa). The returning planes were winched back onto the shore.
Westgate-on-Sea has two wide open bays, West Bay and St Mildred's which are the perfect place to relax or take part in sporting activities.
Westgate-on-Sea Town Council was formed in 2015 and is here to actively support the people who live, work and visit our Town. The council aims for full transparency and open communication, if you cannot find what you are looking for on this website please get in touch.
