Welcome to the Princess of Wales

Princess of Wales

Traditional charm

Traditional charm and simple pleasures - with great ales from Britain’s oldest brewer Shepherd Neame available on tap, and classic pub games and community events to enjoy.

There’s live sport on TV, and for those who prefer to play rather than watch, the pub also supports ladies and men’s darts teams. There are  cards and quiz nights too, and occasional evenings of great live music. 

Located in Tivoli Road, Margate, the Princess of Wales is a home-from-home for many a local resident, with its beer garden the perfect place to gather on lazy summer days. Whatever the temperature outside, you’re always assured a warm welcome when you walk through the door.

Our history

This down-to-earth community pub, located in a residential area of Margate, is named after Princess Alexandra of Denmark.

Princess Alexandra became Princess of Wales in 1863 when she married Prince Edward, later to become King Edward VII.

The local connection was made when the Royal Yacht Victoria and Albert moored off Margate – an event that caused great excitement in the town.

When the pub was built a short time later, it was decided to name it after the Princess.
