Margate has experienced somewhat of a cultural rejuvenation in recent years, shifting from a sidelined seaside resort to a beacon of culture on the British coast. Famously home to J.M.W Turner, considered by many to be the master of painting light and water, the town has a long history of artistic flair and alternative ideas. Embodying both of these qualities, the Selina Margate is a new addition to the collection, offering a plethora of bespoke guest rooms decorated with a decidedly art-deco sensibility.

What’s more, the hotel occupies a prime position on the town's stunning seafront, which means you're never far away from innovative restaurants, quality nightlife and the iconic Turner Contemporary. Margate is also home to one of the country’s liveliest pride celebrations!

Selina is a continent-spanning collection of hotels and guesthouses that are truly unique. Attracting backpackers, digital nomads and weekend travellers alike, Selina offers beautiful accommodations in stunning locations. Boasting properties in every corner of the globe, each Selina hotel is inspired and immersed in the culture that surrounds it, and with welcoming and knowledgeable staff, a Selina hotel is the ideal place from which to base your next adventure. Custom-built for the modern era, the collection blends wellness, tourism and co-working to provide authentic spaces that suit any traveller's needs and desires.

Sundowners Bar is the only gay bar in Margate. It's also the only gay bar within the Thanet district. It's quirky, camp and tons of fun. There's a roof terrace overlooking Margate Sands. You can have a cocktail and watch the world - well, Kent - go by.

It can get busy, especially at weekends. There are regular drag shows - some of the best queens in London often come to perform.

If you're in Margate you can't miss a night out at Sundowners Bar.
