Kent Reports

Cliftonville, Kent

Review of Cliftonville by Carol on May 13th, 2008
Cliftonville is a handsome seaside resort forming the eastern - and at one time more exclusive - part of Margate, with distinguished former visitors including the poet TS Eliot. Indeed, the restored Walpole Bay Hotel aims to recapture that ambience by inviting guests to step back in time to a "bygone era", with an Edwardian restaurant, a 1920s ballroom and a snooker room. Located at the top of the Isle of Thanet and also incorporating the Palm Bay district, Cliftonville is an ideal holiday destination. The sea front is lined with grand houses looking down over gardens to the paved promenade and sandy beach below, and there are some lovely coastal walks as well as great opportunities for cyclists. The Viking Coastal Trail, which passes through Cliftonville, is one of the finest cycling routes in south- east England. With a little bit of something for everyone, Cliftonville has an indoor bowling green, tennis courts, pitch and putt, crazy golf, a main shopping street and the Tom Thumb Theatre - which, true to its name, is one of the tiniest in the country. Families are next door to the traditional amusements of Margate, which also provides for modern water sports and cultural interests. Carol
