Margate. That formerly uncool seaside resort in north-west Kent, has had quite the revamp. It is part of Thanet, which also includes the seaside towns of Ramsgate and Broadstairs, and was recently mentioned in Frommers must-see destinations for 2011. Margate is packed with quirky cafes and vintage shops, and it's also home to the new Turner Contemporary gallery.
