All beach huts remain closed until reopening on 4 July 2020.

As a result of the easing of lockdown and the next phase of the Government’s 3 step plan, we can now announce that from Saturday 4 July 2020 the beach hut service will restart. Seasonal hut keys can be obtained from the Bay Inspectors from tomorrow (Thursday 2 July).

We kindly request you familiarise yourself with the Beach Hut Guidance and ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ below... and also help support Thanet District Council keep our beaches clean by taking rubbish home with you, where possible.

We sincerely hope you are able to enjoy the rest of the season.


Unfortunately, due to the current situation, the Winter Gardens will be closed for ‘in-person’ weekly beach hut bookings that usually occurs the last week in July.

Request for weekly beach hut hire for Summer 2021 should be emailed to: or alternatively posted to: Winter Gardens, Fort Crescent, Margate CT9 1HX.

Storm events in the summer can create a heavy accumulation of seaweed on our bays and beaches. Thanet District Council is committed to removing this if it occurs as soon as practically possible but are unable to remove any that is deposited on the beach chalk reefs due to the protected status of these and the prevention of mechanical machinery from working on these areas by Natural England.
