Margate lies on the south-eastern coast of England, attracting travellers with its idyllic seaside town, sandy (not pebbly) beaches, and family-friendly activities. The 19th-century Harbour Arm stone pier is arguably the town's liveliest area – expect loads of cafés and restaurants, bike rental shops, and artistic hangouts. Art lovers can explore galleries and museums that dot the town – check out rotating exhibitions at Turner Contemporary, located near Harbour Arm.

Perhaps the town’s most unique feature is Shell Grotto, a winding network of tunnels covered with mosaics that are made entirely from, you guessed it, seashells.
