Coach holidays with Alfa Travel


Resort - Margate


Home to the new Turner Gallery, many unique and interesting shops and the official Hornby Toy Museum, Margate has undergone extensive regeneration in recent years. The quieter Cliftonville area is well known for its bowling greens which bring many people to the resort. It is an excellent base from which to explore east Kent, the "Garden of England".
