Fun and free on Kent’s coastline

Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate, Kent

Who says you need to break the bank to have a great day out with so much available for free on the coast of Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate?

Cheap weekend breaks in Thanet don’t have to cost a lot with so many free things to do. Delve into the area’s history and heritage on free guided costumed tours, see legendary fighter planes at RAF Manston Spitfire and Hurricane Museum or learn about Ramsgate’s role in during WWII at the Defence of the Nation Museum

At Turner Contemporary, Margate’s free international art gallery, admire the view that so inspired JMW Turner and a stimulating programme of exhibitions and workshops.

Not to be forgotten is Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate’s great outdoors, with 15 award-winning sandy beaches and bays. Hop on your bike to discover them all along the 32 mile-long Viking Coastal Trail – it’s healthy and the views are absolutely free!
