The Isle of Thanet region
As the first seaside resort in the country, Margate has drawn visitors ever since the 1730s. The 700 year old harbour had been extensively used by the sailing hoys which regularly plied their trade from London.
However, a new cargo inundated the town in the 18th century when boatloads of holiday makers came to try out Benjamin Beale's wonderful, new innovation. A local inventor, he patented a bathing machine which allowed for therapeutic and modest bathing. Little, wooden huts were pulled into the sea and the bather could then descend into the water covered by a canvas.
The introduction in 1814 of 'Steam Yachts' caused rapid expansion which continued throughout the 19th century. The wooden jetty was constructed in 1824 and the famous iron jetty in 1855 which allowed visitors to disembark from the visiting steam packs.
Today Margate is still a thriving seaside town, recovering from the mass exodus of package holidays and still retains the traditional British holiday atmosphere. There is plenty to see and do, from good restaurants to beach entertainments including everything from traditional Donkey rides to water sports, Margate has something for everyone
The harbour town of Ramsgate, with its lively marina and ferry port is 5 miles away, whilst ever popular Broadstairs is only 4 miles away. The whole Thanet coastline has miles of sandy beaches and dramatic cliff top walks for you to explore.
The Winter Gardens are our neighbours and host year round live entertainments to suit the entire family.
To see more of the area, from April to September an open-top bus tour operates from a stop outside the apartments, covering the whole Thanet area. A full tour takes about 1 1/2 hours, but you can 'hop-on/hop-off' throughout the day on the same ticket.
For the more active, the scenic Viking Coastal Trail is a 27 mile-long route or six shorter themed routes for cycling or walking. Bike hire is available locally.
Sea View Holiday Apartment guests also get automatic membership to Walkers Friend for the duration of their stay with us for free guided tours and more walks
There are several golf courses in the area, so bring your clubs.
Watersports are very popular and jet skiing, surfing, boat trips and fishing are all readily available.
Margate has direct rail links to London so you might want to head into the city to catch some West End Theatre and shopping or visit the famous London Landmarks. London is approximate 90 mins away by train - Train timetables & information on 08457 484950.
If travelling a little further afield is for you, Trans Europa Car Ferries operate 4 sailings a day to Ostende in Belgium from Ramsgate Harbour. Great for a day trip to Europe, maybe stock up in time for Christmas too. Ferry If you plan to travel over to Belgium during your stay, don't forget your passport.
What's on in Kent
A full events diary means there is always something to do and a lot of it is free! Join in a ceilidh during Broadstairs Folk Week, marvel at the speed of the water skiers at Ramsgate's new waterskiing Championship or relax in Margate’s piazza whilst listening to top quality jazz bands. Even out of the main summer season there are exciting events like the Big Sky Festival of Motor Sports – a great excuse for a weekend away.
In addition to this there are art galleries to explore, theatres where you can see wonderfully entertaining productions and up-to-the-minute cinemas showing the latest releases – so much choice.

Wir haben fünf Tage in Margate verbracht und hatten das Glück, trotz Ende September, nur einen Regentag zu erwischen. Und vor allem Temraire Court war toll. Es ist eine große Ferienwohnung mit zwei Schlafzimmern (sehr bequeme Betten!), zwei Badezimmern (eins mit Dusche, eins mit Wanne) und einem großen, hellen und gut ausgestatteten Küchen-Speise-Wohnbereich (sieht wirklich so aus wie auf den Bildern). Neben der gemütlichen Einrichtung hat uns aber vor allem der wirklich fantastische Ausblick aufs Meer begeistert.
Wir hatten zuvor ein paar Tage in London verbracht. Die Anreise mit dem Zug war problemlos und wir wurden von Sally, der sehr sympathischen Housekkeeperin, sogar vom Bahnhof abgeholt. Man kann aber auch bequem in 15 Minuten zur Wohnung laufen oder mit dem Bus fahren (Haltestelle direkt vor der Wohnung). Mit dem Bus sind wir dann auch in die umliegenden Ortschaften gefahren. Das geht schnell, kostet wenig und die Busse fahren oft.
Einkaufen konnten wir gleich um die Ecke bei Aldi oder in den zahlreichen kleinen Geschäften in der zwei Gehminuten entfernten Northdown Road.
Das absolute Highlight ist aber die herrliche Küste, mit den beeindruckenden Kreidefelsen. Wir haben einige ausgedehnte Spaziergänge am Meer entlang Richtung Broadstairs bzw. Ramsgate unternommen und waren begeistert. Man kann sowohl oben auf den Klippen oder unten am Strand entlang laufen. Beides ist gleichermaßen empfehlenswert.
Und noch eins zum Schluss: Wir hatten zwei Jacken bei unserer Abreise vergessen und haben sie kostenlos nachgeschickt bekommen! Super!
Kurzum: Temraire Court ist absolut empfehlenswert!

Temeraire is a luxurious seaside apartment with stunning seaviews and overlooks the wonderful winter gardens. Well-kept in traditional English style, makes this the perfect place to stay in Margate. 2 generously sized bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin) means you can go with your partner, family or friends and have more than enough room to manoeuvre.
Even with the plethora of vintage shops and retro furniture store, Temeraire was the highlight of our stay. Very homely, comfortable, quiet and relaxing. I couldn't recommend it highly enough!

"Great Views - Great Location"
Fantastic seaviews - eat your meals looking out over the sea though the huge floor to ceiling windows. The appartment itself has everything you could possibly want for your stay - well equipped, modern kitchen, comfortable bedrooms with lots of storage - in addition to wi-fi for those who cannot be separated from their cyber world! Secure parking at the rear of the aparment was a great bonus. Lots going on locally and good base for touring the area.
We had a great time and would thoroughly recommend it.

"Lovely apartment, Great location, Excellent views"
Stayed in this apartment twice in September 2011 during 3 week visit to UK from Australia. The apartment is stunningly presented and location is 2nd to none. Even chocolate biscuits were in the welcome package. Has secure parking and is very quiet despite its location by the Esplanade and oceanfront. The management are personable and helpful. There is a world-class gallery in Margate, excellent restaurants (especially Ambrette which is walking distance) and loads of interesting shops and cafes. There are interesting places for day trips and plenty of brochures in the apartment. It also has free wifi and satellite tv. All in all this was the best place we stayed during our UK visit.
