Cliftonville is a coastal area situated to the east of the main town of Margate. It also contains the area known as Palm Bay. The original Palm Bay estate was built in the 1930s as a number of large, wide avenues with detached and semi-detached houses. This area still remains one of the most desirable places to live in Cliftonville.
West Cliftonville was originally developed as a tourist area containing largely small private hotels and guest houses which catered for the many visitors to what was in the first half of the twentieth century the thriving holiday resort of Margate.
