Welcome to Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate

Lying on the southeastern coast of Kent, the Isle of Thanet, encompassing the popular resorts of Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate, stretches from Pegwell Bay in the southeast to Reculver in the northwest.

Surrounded on three sides by water, Thanet has a unique coastline, with 15 glorious award-winning beaches, each with something different to offer. 

And there’s history and heritage to discover too, with the country’s first modern house in Ramsgate, Dickens’ connection with Broadstairs, Turner’s love of Margate and Betjemen’s lyrical reflection on Westgate-on-sea
