Margate, Kent

Pay a visit to Margate’s international gallery Turner Contemporary for contemporary and historic art.

Margate’s free-to-enter art gallery has won worldwide acclaim for its presentation of contemporary and historic works of art. A stimulating programme of temporary exhibitions, events and chance to listen to talks by the artists, joining an exhibition-themed workshop, or just wandering beside the stunning displays.
