Welcome to The Margate Caves

Originally opened to the public in 1863, the Margate Caves reopened for the next generation of explorers on the 22nd August 2019.

Over the last eight years The Margate Caves Community Education Trust (TMCCET) and the Friends of Margate Caves have been working to restore the Caves to their former glory and build a brand new Visitor Centre on the previously abandoned site.

Our website is still under construction. However, you will still be able to find information on these pages about the history of the site, job opportunities, joining our community as a volunteer or information about how you can help protect the Margate Caves for future generations to enjoy. If you would like to learn more about the Caves or TMCCET please feel free to contact us.

Don’t forget to check back on our website or follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates as well.

Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances we are unable to accept credit or debit cards, we are hoping that this will be resolved as soon as possible.
