A fantastic traditional English seaside resort, Margate has been popular as a holiday choice for generations. This friendly town on the south-east coast is known for Margate Main Sands beach with its tidal pool, children's rides, amusement arcades and traditional entertainment. There are plenty of restaurants and seafood stalls just a short walk away in the Old Town. Margate Old Town really is not-to-be-missed for food but also, vintage shopping, cafés, art galleries, theatres and pubs. Near the Harbour Arm stone pier, the modern Turner Contemporary art gallery has rotating exhibitions. Dreamland Margate is an amusement park with vintage rides, including the world’s oldest rollercoaster! Millions of seashells decorate the Shell Grotto’s underground passages and the Margate Museum has local history displays. Rediscover childhood toys at the Hornby Visitor Centre or tackle the challenging 18-hole Strokes Adventure Golf. The Winter Gardens in Margate hosts a wide variety of events from summer shows and musicals to top TV performers and plays.
