Margate is a popular seaside resort with its sandy beaches and many Regency and Victorian buildings survive from the town’s early days as a resort. There are also a few reminders of an earlier past including the Tudor House, now a museum and smugglers caves. Sporting and special activities are well catered for.

Margate has many boutiques, restaurants and shops and for those wishing to cross the Channel, the ports of Dover and Ramsgate are within easy reach.
