Things To Do in St Margaret’s-at-Cliffe, Kent
Once a tiny fishing village, St Margaret’s-at-Cliffe boomed in the Victorian era as seaside and holiday resorts welcomed people from the cities.
At the time this seaside town welcomed the rich and famous, including the author Ian Fleming. The world renowned author of James Bond liked to stay at the Granville Hotel, a hotel which featured in Moonraker, where Bond and Gala freshen up after surviving their cliff fall in the film.
St Margaret’s-at-Cliffe is home to St. Margaret’s Bay, the beach and seafront area of the village with pebbled beaches set against white cliffs.
