New Horizons! Events


Day Trip To Margate and Turner

Cost: £13 per person

  • Arrive in Margate at around 10.30 and we will have the opportunity to wonder around the Turner Contemporary Gallery which opened in 2011 to see the current exhibitions

  • You then have plenty of free time in Margate to walk along the Harbour Arm and beach front if the weather is fine and treat yourself to ice cream or some jellied eel’s maybe!

  • Do some shopping in the old town with its cobbled streets and boutiques.

  •  There is lots to see in Margate and if you walk a little further you can visit the Shell Grotto with its 4.6 million shells and 70 feet of winding underground passages discovered in 1835.

  • As the old song goes “what ever you decide to do beside the seaside you are sure to have a good time beside the sea!”

  • We return home for home around 4.30pm
