The Hoy is on the sea front side of the Old Town, a thriving bustle of small shops, art galleries, antique and brick-a-back shops, museums and market stalls. Stop for a few moments with us for refreshment.
A hoy was a small sloop-rigged coasting ship or heavy barge used for freight.
In the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, English hoys plied a trade between London and the north Kent coast that enabled middle class Londoners to escape the city for the more rural air of Margate.
