About Turner Contemporary"Still riding high on the opening of Turner Contemporary in 2011, Margate has gentrified without losing its personality."

"One of the most beautiful, naturally lit galleries in Britain"
"I have spent the most extraordinary afternoon at the gallery. Such helpful, informative, warm and enthusiastic staff. This is something I've never experienced before - London or NY or anywhere else. Thank you."
"I've been several times since the gallery opened and have never been disappointed. Architecturally, I think the building is a great success, borrowing the sea views that Turner drew inspiration from. It's large enough to hold interesting exhibitions but small enough that you can do a whole exhibition in one visit. I've had great conversations with friends following each visit - art is supposed to stimulate the senses and the mind and Turner Contemporary's exhibitions certainly do that. Remarkably it's free. A fabulous addition to Margate. And well worth a day trip from London - or anywhere else for that matter."
"I never imagined that my family and grandchildren would have the opportunity to walk into a local gallery to view world-class art. Now they do."
