Escape the everyday to Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate

Take an underground adventure at the wartime Ramsgate Tunnels, a hidden home to more than 1,000 people during WW2, or to Margate Caves, an original chalk mine decorated with unusual murals. Experience what it's like to be a pilot at the Spitfire and Hurricane Museum, or try solving the mystery of Margate’s Shell Grotto - one of Kent’s biggest mysteries.

Solve the clues to break free from an escape room, or reignite your childhood memories at the Hornby Visitor Centre

Take in the natural surroundings, birds and wildlife at Monkton Nature Reserve, or become a goat or alpaca whisperer as you take them for a trek around Quex Park 

We know the weather isn’t always onside, but don’t despair, head indoors to our attractions who are ready and waiting to welcome you.

Please be aware opening times may change at short notice or throughout the season, so please check with attraction direct - 'Know Before You Go'. #Respect, Protect and Enjoy
