As well as enjoying your course at Hilderstone College and our social programme, there are many ways to make your stay even more memorable. Here are some ideas:

Art galleries and exhibitions
Turner Contemporary in the next town of Margate is an award-winning gallery offering a stimulating programme of temporary exhibitions, events and learning opportunities. Entry is free. The art galleries and collections of London are also within easy reach, with venues such as the National GalleryTate BritainTate Modern and the National Portrait Gallery all being free to visit.

Eating out and going for a drink
Broadstairs has a wide selection of places to eat out including Italian, Chinese, Indian, Thai, Greek, Portuguese, Mexican and seafood restaurants. The local area has several award-winning and Michelin star restaurants such as: Le Petit Poisson in Herne Bay, The Ambrette in Margate and Age and Sons in Ramsgate, The Sportsman in Seasalter and Reads in Faversham.

There are also lots of interesting pubs selling local ales and ciders as well as international beers and wines, and each having their own unique character. The Thirty-Nine Steps and The Chapel in Broadstairs, The Four Candles in St.Peter's, The Lifeboat in Margate and the Belgian Cafe in Ramsgate are all definitely worth a visit.

Film, theatre and the arts
Broadstairs has a lovely little cinema, the Palace Cinema, showing the latest releases but also with a regular programme of interesting films proposed by the Thanet Film Society. Our larger multiplex cinema, Vue, also shows regular live performances from the National Theatre and the Royal Opera House.

The College shares its premises with the Sarah Thorne Theatre Club who have a regular selection of plays and shows, whilst the Theatre Royal and The Winter Gardens in Margate, and the Gulbenkian Theatre and the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury, add to the choice.
