Visit Thanet Business
Working together to grow the Thanet Visitor Economy

Tourism contributes at least £352 million to the Thanet economy each year supporting 8,664 jobs (Cambridge Model Economic Impact Survey 2019)

More than 4.6 million visitors come to Thanet every year to discover and explore our three prime coastal resorts – Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate; our Blue Flag beaches; our villages; our heritage; and our thriving and growing cultural scene. The Isle of Thanet is rapidly becoming the place to visit, to work and to live.

We have a five-year Destination Management Plan to build our visitor economy: Making Thanet a better place for visitors, businesses and residents. The plan has been drawn up by Thanet District Council working in partnership with many stakeholders from local businesses and organisations. Find out more

This website describes how the tourism team at Thanet District Council is working with local businesses, investors, residents and industry partners to deliver the Destination Management Plan. You will find out more about the people in the team, our business support services and training opportunities, different ways to get involved in on and offline promotional activities and campaigns, and most importantly how to keep in touch.

Please join us in our bid to deliver a top quality Thanet visitor experience – to grow our businesses, boost our economy and create new jobs.
