Where To Eat

Angela’s: Angela’s is a must, if venturing out to Margate. A beautiful seafood restaurant, serving local and ethically sourced seafood alongside locally grown vegetables. They’ve partnered with Windmill Community Gardens in Margate, which turns their food waste into compost. Angela’s wine list is mostly comprised of English wines, supporting the countries vineyards instead of importing wines from abroad. The cutest spot for a romantic date night!

Dory’s: Situated just around the corner from its sister restaurant, Dory’s is the second venture from the team behind Angelas. Dory’s operates with the same ethos as Angela’s, but the menu is comprised of smaller, sharing plates. Open until 7 pm, this restaurant serves food all day, perfect if you’re only spending the day in Margate.

What To See

Shell Grotto: The famous historical attraction, still riddled with mystery, is a must see for a day out in Margate. Here you’ll find the most beautiful mosaics, made out of 4.6 million shells within 70 ft of underground passages.

Turner Contemporary Museum: After opening in 2011, the Turner Contemporary helped put Margate on the map again as a tourist destination. If you’re planning a trip, we highly recommend checking out what the rotating exhibitions are and go check out this gallery on sea!

Where To Stay

The Reading Rooms: If you want a romantic night away, The Reading Rooms, is a perfect boutique bed and breakfast. With only three rooms, the bed and breakfast can often be booked up so make sure to book ahead! While all rooms are gorgeous, we’d recommend going for Room 3. Grab some bath products from Haeckels and enjoy that luxurious bathtub!

Visit Haeckles

Haeckels House Treatments: Situated above Haeckel’s shop on Cliff Terrace is their spa they opened in 2017. With beautiful sea views and a reasonably priced treatment menu, stopping off for a treatment or two is a must! We recommend going for the Haeckel’s signature facial, designed completely depending on your skins needs.

Haeckels Bathing Machine: Designed by Chloe Young, the Haeckels bathing machine is a beautiful wooden structure, which sits on Margate’s beach. Inspired by the saunas of Reykjavik, Dom Bridges, founder of Haeckels, wanted to help make Margate a destination year-round. As the bathing machine is actually a sauna, Bridges wanted people to be able to enjoy the water in the colder months, as a way to cool off from the hot sauna. The machine is free for all, locals or visitors, to sit and chat, free from technology.
