Thanet Sunsets and Skies: ‘the loveliest in all Europe’

Thanet Tourism
15th June 2020

JMW Turner once remarked that ‘the skies over Thanet are the loveliest in all Europe.’ Charles Dickens loved Broadstairs and said it had ‘never so fine a sunset’ and was ‘the freshest, freest place.’ Visitors are often outside our Information Centre in Margate eagerly snapping away at golden sunsets that fill the sky; ‘these are some of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen!’

Of course, we think we have some of the best sunrises and sunsets in the world and we’ve chosen our favourite photos to prove it. 

What do you think of these pics? We’d love to see yours! Share them with us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter @visitthanet
