The Isle of Thanet region

Imagine lazy summer days lounging, fun family cycle rides along bright spring promenades, bracing cliff-top walks on crisp autumn mornings and watching white horses break onto the shore from a cosy restaurant. Margate, Broadstairs, Ramsgate and surrounding villages - a great all season coastal destination with lots of heritage and culture to discover and explore.

Whatever your interest, Kent is full of exciting attractions for everyone.

Discover the captivating essence of the Garden of England winding along lanes past lavender fields, orchards, vineyards and oast houses. Be enriched by England's oldest county, alive with its exciting past: visiting Canterbury with Chaucer's pilgrims and Rochester with Dickens, following the maritime adventures that have shaped Kent from Roman invasion to World War II. Quintessential England. But also up to date with leading-edge galleries and theatre, Michelin-starred dining and entertaining nightlife giving you so many things to do.

Great value attractions make Kent a favourite destination for families and it's so easy to reach by car, coach and train. Paddle and play on classic, sandy beaches, go wild in exciting animal parks, meet knights at enchanting castles. You'll find boredom-busters to suit children of all ages - and parents can unwind, too.

Talk To The Animals

See the kids have wide-eyed fun while they learn, coming face to face with rare and endangered species at Howletts and Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks, or down on the farm at Farming World, Faversham where you can meet friendly farm animals, magnificent Shire horses and birds of prey. Then Wildwood, Herne Bay, will take you deep into ancient woodlands where you can spot more than 50 different species from badgers to wolves.

The Rare Breeds Centre in Woodchurch will provide you with an extra special day, the beautiful 100 acre farm in the heart of the stunning Kent countryside and make friends with newborn lambs, piglets, Luna the Jersey calf and other loveable farm animals.

Enchanting Castles And Gardens

Kent's rich history offers thrilling tales of kings, queens, knights and ghosts. Special events from jousts to storytelling, archery to dancing, bring history vividly to life. Watch battle re-enactments at Dover or Deal castles, navigate your way through the yew maze at Leeds Castle and 'splashing' water maze at Hever Castle. Unravel the secrets of the Dinosaur & Dragon Valley at Groombridge Place Gardens & Enchanted Forest.

What Was Life Like...?

Join Chaucer's band of pilgrims at The Canterbury Tales, or glide away from the city centre with Canterbury Historic River Tours on the Stour, complete with light-hearted commentary bringing notable buildings and the past to life. Explore a Victorian farmhouse, World War II and 1950s house at Kent Life, near Maidstone. Visit Dickens World at Chatham Maritime, an indoor theme park based on Dickensian England with rides and thrills.

All Aboard!

Kids of all ages will enjoy an expedition on the miniature Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway from Hythe to the lighthouse at Dungeness. Catch a vintage steam train on the Kent & East Sussex Railway or Spa Valley Railway.

Visit The Historic Dockyard Chatham, where you can clamber aboard three historic warships. And how about this for a 'funtastic' adventure: driving and racing real JCBs at Diggerland, Strood.

Treetop Adventure

Enjoy a high-flying activity day at one of our Go Ape sites in Kent- at Bedgebury Forest and National Pinetum and Leeds Castle. The courses, set amongst the treetops, blend high wires, Tarzan swings and zip wires and allow children to get out and about and their adrenalin pumping.

How did Canterbury help Keats recapture his Muse? Why do choosy shoppers love Rochester? Have a break in Kent's cathedral cities and stir your imagination: fine dining, festivals and quality accommodation make for rich and diverse escapes. All you need to do is choose where you want to go. To plan your journey visit


In a very short while - just 1/2 hour by car from Margate or 31 minutes by train, you can be strolling the narrow, cobbled streets of one of England's oldest cities with a continuous history. There are so many different ways to get to know Canterbury and as the heart of the city is traffic-free, a leisurely walk with a Green Badge Guide is ideal for discovering nooks and corners. Or glide away from the city centre with Canterbury Historic River Tours on the Stour, complete with light-hearted commentary bringing notable buildings and the past to life.

Another great way to experience the past is with a visit to one of Kent's most popular attractions, The Canterbury Tales. A stunning reconstruction of 14th century England follows Geoffrey Chaucer's colourful characters on their magical pilgrimage from London to the shrine of St. Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral.

Of course, the catalyst for the city's allure is the Canterbury World Heritage Site, the magnificent Cathedral, St Augustine's Abbey and St Martin's Church. From the moment St Augustine established his seat, or 'cathedra', here in AD 597, Canterbury was destined to be a place apart.

Shops, restaurants and nightlife flourish in lively cosmopolitan counterpoint to this absorbing heritage. The £140-million Whitefriars shopping quarter has over 70 famous name stores, and do dive down the maze of intriguing side streets to browse specialist emporia and art galleries. Hungry? Find a café, pub, teashop or restaurant that suits your mood: maybe lunch at the unusual Goods Shed, Canterbury's permanent farmers' market in a handsome Victorian railway goods shed, which also has a restaurant featuring seasonal fare.


It's so enriching to see the world through different eyes and in Rochester (only an hours drive away), Charles Dickens featured it in his writings more than any other town apart from London and whereas much of what he knew in the capital has vanished, it remains here and location spotting is a great way to exercise the brain cells.

Follow In Dickens' Footsteps, a self-guided tour with leaflet and map leading to a dozen places the author loved. In The Guildhall Museum The Dickens Discovery Room uses a tabloid newspaper approach to present the author as one of the UK's first real celebrities. There is also the amazing Dickens World to explore, jump on board the Great Expectations Boat Ride, take a trip back in time to a Victorian school complete with nasty schoolmaster or get spooked in the Haunted House of 1859. You can also meet some of Dickens' great literary characters in the Victorian town courtyard.

What a contrasting world, then, awaits in Rochester Castle, whose chequered history has encompassed three sieges and partial demolition during battle. It nevertheless remains one of the best-preserved examples of Norman architecture in England. Another twist of the heritage kaleidoscope and you're in the peaceful surroundings of Rochester Cathedral, England's second-oldest cathedral. People have worshipped on the site since AD 604 and the present building dates from 1080.

Retail therapy on the Victorian High Street is completely free of chain stores: your chance to buy those superb little treats, in antique, craft, gift and designer shops. There's even an old-fashioned candy store as well as Baggins, the country's largest second-hand bookshop - a superior haunt for magpies and bookworms.


Whitstable's main claim to fame is its oysters which remain an intrinsic part of this sea town's character and are celebrated every July at the Oyster Festival. Oysters and other delicacies from the sea can be enjoyed at the local restaurants and pubs or taken home from the fresh fish market at the harbour.

Shoppers can delight in the town's bohemian charm with independent craft and gift shops, galleries, delicatessens and fashion shops trading side by side with butchers and bakers. When you need to recharge with a drink and food you will be spoilt for choice with a wonderful choice of cafes, restaurants and pubs. Whitstable is one of a very few in the country that has a pub on the beach.

Whether you take the main route through the town or enjoy haphazard progress through quiet lanes and alleyways with eccentric names such as Squeeze Gut Alley, you'll end up at the working harbour. Constructed in 1831 the harbour has an interesting history including diving, shipbuilding and fishing.

Along the coast at Tankerton, grassy slopes dip to meet the sea throwing out an invitation to visitors and locals to walk along the prom and take in some bracing sea air. There's a chance too to get unsurpassed views of Whitstable's skyline from The Street, a wide ridge of shingle stretching out to sea, but only revealed when the tide is low.

With its sense of intimacy and rich character Whitstable has secured a favoured spot in the hearts and minds of all who visit the town.


The beauty of breaks in Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate is that whatever your interests, whatever your mood, whatever you age, there is always something enticing to do.

For fresh-air activity cycle along the family-friendly Viking Coastal Trail, play golf (18-holes, mini, adventure), or how about high-octane surfing?

Learning is fun for all ages with the Thanet Coast Project, which organises seashore safaris and Rock Doc Walks revealing the natural wonders of our coast. Maybe join a boat trip to see playful seals.

Our heritage and culture is equally varied, contrasting Dickens House Museum and Pugin's Grange with Turner Contemporary and the innovative galleries of Margate Old Town. Also uncover surprises like the exotic Powell-Cotton Museum and the mysterious Shell Grotto.

Retail ranges from vintage and boutique in Margate Old Town, to crafts and antiques in Broadstairs, and the cater-all shopping and leisure of Westwood Cross.

As to food, you can tuck into everything from fish and chips to Italian and Thai. Sample café culture beside Ramsgate marina and beer from the local brewery. Crunch on Thanet's very own new crisps and buy Kent's finest from Quex Barn farmers' market.

My husband and I had a week in this apartment, and there is absolutely nothing to fault it, well furnished, everything you need, and the most wonderful balcony with seating/table and fantastic sea views. Highly recommend this apartment for anyone wanting to visit Margate.

"Awsome Apartment"

Really was a lovely apartment with everything we needed as a group of friends. Terrace over looking the sea which was very nice. Has own parking space which made life easy. Great location as well, 5 mins to beach, and 10 mins to old town. Tesco express right next door. If I come to Margate again I will definately want to stay here.

Thank you for your lovely review - welcome back anytime! Thanks again.

"fabulous in every respect!"

This is a fantastic apartment in a very interesting historic setting. Every aspect of the accommodation is really good. There are two super bathrooms, the main bedroom is very large and the other one has bunks and lots of toys and things to keep young children amused. The doors open out on to an extensive patio with great views out over the beach. Since the November weather was less than perfect we didn't venture out there too often but the Margate air quality is very good and there are plenty of bracing walks in both directions when you leave the property. The owners were super helpful when I phoned to say I couldn't get the TV working - the lead was in the wrong socket which was easy to sort out. All in all this was by far the best place we've stayed in in 7 years of visiting Margate to visit our disabled son (who stayed with us and loved it too) and we can't wait to return. A big thank you for making our long weekend so pleasurable. Paul, Wendy and Aaron Newman

Thank you for your kind review, it's always very much appreciated.

"Luxury Beach chic accommodation in a fun quirky location!"

When we drove into the complex we were blown away by how smart and secure it was. We found the apartment easily and the treats kept on coming. Spacious and tastefully decorated throughout and in pristine condition . Everything we needed was on hand and any question we asked ourselves was answered by the well thought out user guide. We had a fab dressed up night out in Margate where we found 2 lovely places for cocktails followed by a taste tactic meal at The Ambrette restaurant. The beds were super comfy. The lounge was perfect for a lazy morning recovering from the night before with squishy sofas, blankets and lots of cushions. This place is so good that you don't want to go outside . Fortunately the atmosphere in Margate is to good to miss. I would recommend this apartment whatever your agenda. It's lovely to know you have somewhere comfy and cosy to come back to once you have explored all that Margate has to offer!!!
