An overnight stay in a gorgeous Margate apartment. The town that inspired Turner and Tracy Emin.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
How about living life as a local? In a contemporary flat, painted in the colours of the Margate skies. Only a minute's walk from the railway station and a minute's walk from the beach. In fact you can walk everywhere, before returning to a haven of tranquility. It really is a perfect spot. Your very own apartment by the seaside.
Turner would have certainly approved.
TELL ME MORE
Vast skies, dramatic light and, for Turner himself, the added excitement of an illicit affair with a local landlady.
What a great advertisement for this wonderful seaside town that has undergone a renaissance. A weekend in Margate promises much and delivers more.
For a start there is the obvious. You can’t miss The Turner Contemporary art gallery which stands proudly by the edge of the sea and boasts artistic treats and a great cafe.
View the scene from the top of the big wheel in Dreamland, or sit and watch life from The Sun Deck, where the crew on a double-decker bus serve up award-winning breakfasts.
Experience the joys of a massage from ‘Haeckels’ which overlooks the beach that supplies the basics for their sea kelp products, or just wander through the town checking out the vintage stores and the independents that are popping up everywhere.
This is a town with a buzz, which has also retained some of its original ‘grit’ which is absolutely part of the charm.
Oh, and don’t forget to visit the seashell grotto, a Margate landmark. A magical mosaic of everything Margate - whelks, mussels and about a million oysters shells.
