Experience contemporary art in Margate

Margate, Kent

Contemporary art is leading the way in Margate alongside retro shops and funky bars framed by the trappings of the classic English seaside.

A great attraction for art lovers in Margate is the Turner Contemporary gallery. The gallery, built on the site of Britain’s best-loved painter JMW Turner‘s lodgings - Mrs Booth’s guest house. The gallery, which is the largest exhibition space in the South East, offers a programme of temporary exhibitions, events and learning opportunities.
