Tourism contributes at least £293 million to the Thanet economy each year supporting 7,312 jobs (Cambridge Model Economic Impact Survey 2015)
More than 3.9 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 now 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
