Don’t need the Breeze for commuting? Here are some ideas for days out...

Coming from Canterbury?

Fancy a day at the seaside? Margate is well known for its sandy beach! Or, why not redefine ‘a day out at the seaside’ by visiting Dreamland – an amusement park based on a traditional English seaside funfair. If you’ve got an artistic side try the Turner Contemporary, an art gallery that presents a rolling programme of temporary ‘contemporary’ exhibitions.

  • If you’re going to Dreamland you need to get off at the bus stop on Marine Terrace outside the main entrance.
  • If you’re going to the Turner you need to get off at the bus stop by Cecil Street Council Offices

 

Also, don’t forget, every other bus continues to Westwood Cross too which great if you fancy a different shopping scene.

  • The last bus back to Canterbury from Margate is at 22:15 on Mondays to Saturdays and 21:45 on Sundays.
  • The last bus back to Canterbury from Westwood Cross is at 18:23 on Mondays to Saturdays and 17:28 on Sundays.

 

Going to Canterbury?

With Canterbury being one of Kent’s most popular tourist destinations and UNESCO world heritage site, the ever-popular city has plenty to offer including the Canterbury castle, St. Martin’s church, and of course the Cathedral – all of which can be easily accessed from the main bus station. As well as the exciting cultural scene, Canterbury offers a great range of shops, bars and restaurants! 

  • The last bus back to Margate from Canterbury is at 22:15 on Monday to Saturdays and 21:45 on Sundays.
  • The last bus back to Westwood Cross from Canterbury is at 18:30 on Mondays to Saturdays and 17:45 on Sundays.
