Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I remember this shop from many years ago when it was still a chemist and always loved the old medicine drawers that line the back wall. It’s lovely that the character of the original shop has been retained and they are still there. Arrowsmiths started as a small quirky gift shop and over the years has grown into a truly unique style of gift shop. You can sometimes pick up a cheaper little bargain but on the whole it’s not what most would call cheap. I am a firm believer that you do get what you pay for and it’s evident here. I live in Broadstairs and have been shopping at Arrowsmiths for years, often going in just to wander and “oo that’s lovely” at the gifts; but usually coming out with something! The staff that run the shop are lovely, so helpful and chatty which I find really nice. They’ve worked hard to become the amazing place it is and long may they do well in Broadstairs.

This is my favourite shop in broadstairs, it has good quality and unusual goodies. The staff are amazing and very helpful. You will always find a gift for anyone in here, but if you go in you will come out with something for yourself as well. I love browsing here.
Cards, clothes, jewellery, oddities, candles, scarves and much more.

This is an incredibly well presented gift shop. From the old sign that has been uncovered above the shop front to the old wooden and glass display cabinets it is like coming into a museum. If there were awards for presentation then this place would win hands down. There are also some lovely greetings cards here plus plenty of jewellery and decorative bits. Prices do look a little steep but I suspect most purchasers will be too in awe of the décor to notice!!

This is a little shop of delightful everything. You could buy all you christmas presents in one place, it's so diffferent to the high street shops, thankfully.

I had read about it here on Trip Advisory and looked out for it on my visit. I was not disappointed. Full of most unusual and beautiful gifts, including some lovely jewellery of varying prices, and one was so good I bought it for myself and am wearing it as I write this review. A smallish place with a lower floor as well as the main floor but packed every inch with amazing stuff. Totally recommend!

I love this shop it is so well laid out the staff have all been there for years are helpful and friendly. All your items are wrapped with care great cards and everything is just so lovely beware you could spent lots and lots of money. If you need something for a gift or just to treat yourself this is the place to go. My husband always knows he is on to a winner if he buys me gifts from here . if you see something you just must have buy it as they change stock often.

This place has friendly, helpful staff, and a regularly-changing stock which is perfect for gifts. All of this is housed in a lovely, atmospheric building.
