Sands Hotel Margate | Kent

Contrasting the wild beauty of the British coast with the elegance and Victorian refinement of Margate’s heritage, the gorgeous Sands Hotel offers you everything you could want from a beach-side boutique hotel: incredible views over the beach and sea, a private roof terrace and impeccably designed interiors. It is an ultra stylish Margate wedding venue with all-year round appeal.


Luxurious and contemporary, with plenty of nods to its Victorian heritage, the Sands Hotel is a tranquil sanctuary that’s full of pleasant surprises.Say your vows in its dedicated function room or Bay restaurant, both of which have mesmerising views across the blue flag beaches of Margate Sands. Sip champagne with your guests on the exclusive sea-view roof terrace and celebrate with a wedding breakfast for up to 62 guests before continuing the celebrations into the evening with up to 200 of your friends and family.


Should you wish to take over the entire hotel for your wedding, you are welcome to do so – hiring on an exclusive use basis will also mean that The Sands can cater for an even larger wedding, if you so wish.


Should you wish to stay overnight at The Sands, it has 20 individually designed bedrooms (all en-suite) and can offer you and your guests rates at competitive prices.


You will be given a dedicated wedding co-ordinator as soon as you book your wedding at The Sands who, together with the hotel’s events team, will work with you to make your wedding day is stress-free and utterly romantic.

“Imagination is at the heart of all wedding planning and we strive to work with our clients and their own ideas to create a day that is unique and special to them. We are not limited by things such set menus or music and so our clients have the freedom to express a little of themselves on their big day. “Our location is truly beautiful and I feel that everyone should take advantage of it as much as possible. No longer do you need to travel hundreds of miles for a stunning beach location – it’s right on our doorstep.”Leanne Smith, Wedding Co-ordinator, Sands Hotel
