St. Margaret’s-at-Cliffe & St. Margaret’s Bay


Basking in the first light of the day, this isolated 'island' in the midst of the White Cliffs has at its heart the lovely seaside village of St. Margaret's-at-Cliffe and secluded cove at St. Margaret's Bay.

Experience “First Light” at the South Foreland Lighthouse. Breathe in history at the ancient church of St. Margaret of Antioch before following the valley down to the Bay and the Pines Visitor Centre and Museum. Opposite you’ll find the lovely Pines Garden, watched over by an impressive statue of Sir Winston Churchill.

The surrounding countryside is spectacular at all times of the year, offering an inspiring backdrop to a range of activities. Roam along the deserted coastline and get off the beaten track amongst the rolling green hills of the Kent Downs, or take in clifftop scenery and wooded valleys under pedal power. For a different experience why not saddle up and follow the green lanes and tracks for a perfect hack through the country.

With a great variety of places to stay, eat and drink ranging from luxurious 4 star country house hotel accommodation to great Kentish pubs serving locally sourced beers, wines and dishes, there really is something for everyone.
