With boutique B&Bs, classic seafront hotels, campsites and self-catering cottages, Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Margate (the three main towns of Thanet) can more than meet your festival accommodation needs. Local public transport comes in the form of the 'loop' bus which connects the three towns, while taxi prices from Broadstairs to Ramsgate and Margate to Ramsgate are approximately £5 and £7 respectively.

In Thanet, hotels range from cliff-top luxury to Georgian harbour-side comfort, via Jazz Age glamour and sleek modernism. There is also a wealth of guest houses: choose from cosy, family-run B&Bs, plush Edwardian establishments and luxurious pads with all mod-cons.

Superb-quality self-catering options are also available. Discover fishermen's cottages, 19th century villas, coastguard's cottages, easy-access apartments, a medieval hall house and snug Victorian terraces.

There are camping options too, all within easy reach of Ramsgate.
