Make a holiday apartment in Margate your home away from home

Margate is a vibrant Kent coastal town, somewhat in the midst of a cultural renaissance: full of the historical charm of a traditional seaside resort, it is now also home to a thriving café culture and numerous art galleries. With everything Margate has to offer, it’s a favourite with couples seeking a romantic getaway as well as with families looking for a short seaside break. HomeAway has a wonderful selection of holiday apartments in Margate, many of which are located right on the seafront. All furnished to a high standard sleeping up to six comfortably, they offer the beauty of the tranquil blue sea, all within easy reach of restaurants, attractions, and activities; and, what with so many Margate holiday apartments located close to the centre of town, there’s plenty of opportunity to explore further afield too.

Things to do

-History: The Shell Grotto is easily one of the UK’s most mysterious sites; and it's usually the first port of call from Margate holiday apartments. This subterranean passageway was first discovered in 1835 and has mesmerised visitors ever since. Comprised of 4.6 million shells affixed to over 20 metres of hallways, no one is quite sure of its origins. Some believe pagans built it, whilst other theories relate the site back to the Phoenicians. Whatever the true story, the Shell Grotto is open daily from Easter to Halloween, and on weekends during the winter months. Prefer stately homes? Margate Tudor House is one of the oldest buildings in the region, and dates back to the early 16th century. Located in Old Town, the Tudor-era home boasts magnificent glazed windows and multiple chimneys.

-Culture: Margate Old Town is the cultural heart of Kent. Colourful art galleries, trendy cafés and cobbled streets are all just a stone’s throw away from several holiday apartments in Margate. Located close to the beach to boot, Old Town also hosts a number of events throughout the year, including the Margate Jazz Festival and the Margate Bazaar, which takes place on Sundays during the summer.

-Museums: Turner Contemporary was named after celebrated British painter JMW Turner who was very much inspired by Margate’s seascapes. The newest major art gallery in the South East, despite its name, focuses on art from 1750 right up to contemporary works of the present day. In addition to a permanent collection, the gallery also features rolling exhibitions that bring new art to Margate. Admission to Turner Contemporary is free.

-Family fun: The Hornby Visitor Centre is well within reach of Margate holiday homes and apartments, and is a great family-friendly destination. The centre features some of the most beloved toys from the Hornby, Scalextric, Airfix, and Corgi brands. This includes modern as well as rare and antique toys. The Hornby Visitor Centre is open daily.

Weather in Margate

Margate is naturally very popular in the summer months due to its excellent beach. Temperatures reach their peak in July and August at 22°C, though warm temperatures prevail from June to September. It does get quite cold in the winter and rainfall is pretty common throughout the year.

Travel to Margate

Margate is 125 kilometres from Central London, roughly an hour and a half's drive or a two-hour train ride away. There is a rail station located in the centre of town that connects Margate to London Victoria and London St. Pancras stations, but there are also a few small regional airports in South East England for visitors from further afield.

We were well looked after by Chris who let us in and showed us around. He even carried our bags from the car in the underground parking garage. There was milk and orange juice in the fridge and plenty of tea and coffee in the cupboard. Chris kindly handed us a packet of hobnobs. The gated development is attractive and peaceful. Because of on going developments you cannot get to the beach from the sea facing side. Nevertheless It is very handy for the fantastic beach and tidal pool and of course the railway station and Dreamland? A lot of Margate has seen better days but there are signs of revival. The old town in particular is quirky and fun. The Turner gallery is a must. Also do not forget the gloriously restored Walpole Bay hotel for a cream tea is just a few miles away.

Caters for a big group so plenty of space, bathrooms and a big fridge to stock up! Joanna was lovely and came over very briefly to say hi and when we had a problem with the dishwasher. Highly recommended.

Phil was super helpful. Pubs, restaurants, supermarkets/shops etc all very close. The place was warm, well appointed and spotlessly clean. We went with our dog and we all loved it. Highly recommend. We went in November and despite not great weather, we loved it. And you must go to the Turner Gallery in Margate. Very special experience.
