Margate Harbour Arm
Ranked #10 of 54 things to do in Margate
Attraction details
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Since the pier has had a facelift, it seems to be prospering. There are galleries, a restaurant, and 2 pubs, with the Lighthouse Bar, being the most inviting. Its great for an evening stroll, and even better for a spot of pier-jumping! Worth a walk.

Four of Five times a year, normally on a Tuesday night, Thanet Classic car club descends onto the Harbour Arm. A perfect opportunity to see 30+ old vehicles.

A pretty enough walk, but if you're parking for the Turner, be careful..... parking is expensive at the best of times - and Margate operate dual pricing on the arm. Only a short walk away from one of the best fish and chip shops I know

It gives you great views of Margate and of the news sea defences, take your camera. If you like real ale. The recently opened Harbour Arms is worth a visit.

There are restaurants,pubs and sea food stall on the margate harbour arm which complement margate old town. There is now new sea defences at the harbour with large steps in the sea for easy swimming or sunbathing.
