Great views

Great views from one side the town sea frontage and from the over side the channel. Worth a walk to the end. Plenty of parking but tight for long cars.

Margate is a typical British seaside town, its a bit run down but there are plans afoot to rejuvenate the area. However there are lots of positives, lovely view across the sea and the Margate Harbour Arm is worth a walk along to blow the cobwebs away.

Worth a walk along the harbour wall, particularly in the crisp winter air with bright sunshine and clear skies. Tremendous views back across the whole Margate bay. Cafe and a bar at the end of the harbour arm.

such lovely views and as the light changes and the tide changes then photos are superb. pleasant to walk along and there is paid parking, needs some parking skills as quite narrow arm

I'm not sure why we visited. My son wanted to take me to someplace "new", and somehow we ended up here. It was a blustery day, but sunny, so in theory this should have been a fun day out, but the Harbour Arm depressed me. Yes, we were here out of season, but still.

It's a shame the hole town looks warnout. Yes it was a nice day and the beach was packed. But step in from the beach and wow does it want a make over. The sooner the better I think.

For a panoramic view of Margate, this is a great place to take a walk, there is even a bar at the end of the arm to reward your efforts, with real ale and cider. Even live music when we visited, however do walk, parking on the harbour arm isn't cheap. Also I'd not recommend this for anyone with young... More
