Turner Contemporary

Turner Contemporary is the largest exhibition space in the South East outside of London. It offers a unique opportunity to explore links between historical and contemporary art through its programme of temporary exhibitions and events.

The café is a light airy space with stunning views across Margate bay. There is a large terrace with deckchairs for relaxing in the sun with a local Kentish ale or glass of wine. The menu is seasonal, with a strong emphasis on supporting small local suppliers within a 20 mile radius.

Turner Contemporary and the Café are both available for hire.

Opening times 
Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 5.30pm
Friday and Saturday evenings 6.00pm to 9.30pm
