Father's Day at Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate

Celebrate Father’s Day at the Coast on Sunday 16th June

If the man in your life likes his engines, then he’ll find more than enough to entertain him with ‘trains, planes, and automobiles’ across the isle of Thanet this Father’s Day.

Don a hard hat and grab a torch to head underground at Ramsgate Tunnels to find out what it was really like to shelter from the air raids, and even live here during WWII...

Ever fancied being a pilot? Experience the thrill of flying one of WWII’s most iconic planes with the Spitfire Simulator at Manston’s Spitfire and Hurricane Museum.  Or take to the skies with a trial helicopter flight for a bird’s eye view of Thanet...

Remember your Hornby train set, Airfix models, or Scalextrics? Relive the excitement and share the stories behind Britain’s best-loved toys with your own family at the Hornby Visitor Centre.

If the bracing sea air is more your thing, there’s plenty to do on our coastal waters… Take a boat trip to the local National Nature Reserve to see the resident seal colony and bird population. Book a family fishing trip, or feel the awesome power of nature as you view the local sea Wind Farms with Go2Sea.  

Feel the wind in your hair as you balance surfing or SUP (Stand Up Paddleboarding) with Joss Bay Surf School and Kent Surf School 

After all the excitement enjoy a well earned drink at one of the areas many micropubs
