Visit to the Turner Contemporary Gallery & Walpole Bay Hotel, Margate

Event Details

Margate has always been a popular venue for holidaymakers, including Royalty, to this seaside resort from London.  Not only for entertainment but for its genteel Victorian glamour, to attract the likes of TS Elliott and JMW Turner to name a few.  Recently, it has seen a resurgence over the past decade for its sandy beaches, entertainment, restaurants, art at the Turner Gallery and cultural events besides the Shell Grotto or the Margate Caves and the Hornby Museum.

We will meet over refreshments at the Turner Gallery before a talk by the Curator to include a history of the Gallery and its association with artists such as Turner, Gormley and Emin, and its past exhibition highlights.  After a guided tour of the Gallery we will walk or drive to the Walpole Bay Hotel for a glass of Prosecco and a cream tea before we are guided on a tour of this wonderful Victorian Hotel, Museum and Gallery.

The price per person for the Walpole Cream Tea and guided tours is £75.00.

Closing date: 12 July 2022
