The lovely seaside village of St Margaret’s is set in the heart of White Cliffs Country. It first appeared in the Domesday Book as “Sancta Margharita” with continuing history revolving around its location.
From late Victorian times it developed as a holiday resort and retreat for the well-to-do, amongst which Lord Byron, Ian Fleming and Noel Coward all stayed or lived here.
Today, the village and bay offer an inspiring backdrop to spectacular countryside and coastline and to a wide range of activities. If you love history, discover The Frontline Britain Trail – a 4 mile circular route – learn about the role of St Margaret’s during the Second World War.
