Head to the Turner Contemporary for a free fix of cutting-edge art right on the seafront, in a rather spectacular building. Most exhibitions are totally free, and there's often other kinds of events and workshops to get stuck into too. Need more? Head over to support local creatives at Kent’s oldest art gallery Lovelys.
It's no secret that Kent's popularity has soared over the last couple of years, and Margate is largely to thank. The shabby chic seaside town has bags of character, from its trendy galleries to the old-school beachfront arcades, and the crowds continue to roll in.
The picture-perfect streets are packed with restaurants, vintage shops, plus cracking bars and pubs. There's also a thriving contemporary art scene, meaning the whole place strikes the perfect balance between trendy and twee. We've curated the perfect day in this lovely seaside town, with everything from where to eat to where to stay, so have a look at the best things to do in Margate right now.
