We think you’ll love the beachfront at Margate; gorgeous sand, award-winning fish and chips and plenty to do and see, why not head down to Kent to soak up some sun?
The area of Thanet, Kent is known for stunning beaches and classic seaside staples, including stalls, fish and chips, shore-side rides, and amazing sandy beaches. Margate, (as well as its neighbouring resorts Broadstairs and Ramsgate), is no exception. With plenty of activities to choose from, this coastal paradise is suitable for everyone. Those who are more adventurous can hike or cycle the Viking Coastal Trail and explore the many beaches along this coastal peninsula. Or, if you’re after a more relaxing and slower paced trip, you could soak up some sun on the sandy beaches or have a romantic seaside dinner looking over the harbor.
With something for everyone, and a less than 90-minute train journey from central London, why not visit this original seaside resort? See below for all the info and I hope you have a fun time.
With so much to see and do in Margate, especially for those who like to get up and go, it is recommended to spend a couple of days there. This’ll allow you to soak up the whole experience on the beach, whilst trying out many of the cafes and restaurants along the beach front. Then you can take a trip along the trails, see the museums and caves, before grabbing some tasty fish and chips to finalise the experience.
