Eating & drinking
Thanet's cultural renaissance extends to unmissable food and drink. This gourmets corner of Kent is full of fine produce, local markets and award-winning places to eat.
You'll find a range of swish harbour restaurants, rural gastro pubs, vintage ice cream parlours and cool, continental cafés alongside national chain restaurants.
Beaches and bays
Thanet's beaches are simply impossible to resist. Stunning in their scenery and their variety astounds too. Here you can go surfing, swimming or sailing. Gaze into rock pools, build a sandcastle, cycle shorelines, hike cliff-tops, go barefoot beach-combing or simply chill out. 15 sandy beaches and bays stretch from Pegwell Bay in the south to Minnis Bay in the north.
Turner Contemporary is one of the UK’s leading art galleries. Situated on Margate seafront, on the same site where Turner stayed when visiting the town, Turner Contemporary presents a rolling programme of temporary exhibitions, events and learning opportunities.
