The Isle of Thanet – A Coast for All Seasons

Big skies, beckoning sandy beaches and a kitsch seaside vibe, the coast of Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate oozes charm and there’s no better time to visit than off-season when the crowds have long gone, beaches are quieter and the salty sea breezes crisper. 

Cool galleries, superb coastal walks and great attractions, Thanet boasts a year-round buzz

The Isle of Thanet is a place like no other – 19 miles of breathtaking coastline encompassing three Georgian and Victorian resorts .

Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate – all rich in history, creativity and natural beauty, but with their own unique character. It’s a place you can escape to, be invigorated and be inspired by at any time of year, but in Autumn and Winter it has a special magic…. 

From Margate’s vibrant, playful vibe to the timeless atmosphere of Broadstairs and Ramsgate’s cosmopolitan maritime charm, you can experience the variety of several trips away in one stunning destination.  

Golden, sandy bays sweep around the coastline, perfectly positioned on the peninsula to capture the most spectacular and sensational sunrises and sunsets, made just that little bit better at this time of year by the mellower light. Chalk cliffs edge the shores, sheltering a string of secluded, unspoilt, tranquil sandy bays.  

The Isle’s astounding history can be felt with every toe-tingling footstep. An historic landing place, the first Saxons Hengist and Horsa arrived here, as did Romans, Anglo-Saxons and Saints – St Augustine, the first Archbishop of Canterbury, landed here. 

Inland, nine surrounding villages and small coastal towns are home to a world of treasures; historic homes, museums, ancient churches, cosy rural pubs with real fires – all beside stunning countryside and spectacular stretches of shore – great for exploring by foot or bike, with exhilarating views to big open skies. 

Artists, writers and musicians have been inspired by this almost- island for centuries, drawn here for the light, views, distinctive charm, restorative qualities and its people. 

It’s a place bursting with possibility for an unforgettable autumn trip away, here you can make heart-warming memories to last a lifetime. All just 75 minutes from London by train.
