All aboard the Margate train


All aboard the Margate train, whoop whoop. I only went for the day but next time I would get an Air B&B and look at staying for the weekend to fully appreciate this little slice of beachy heaven.

Location: Thanet, Kent

How to get there: On the train, from London Kings Cross, St Pancras its about £18 return.

Best for: A bit of beachy fun with friends and family.

1.    Dreamland
You can’t go to Margate and NOT visit the famous, Dreamland – to be honest it’s the only thing I have really heard about Margate including the quirky nature of the town. Dreamland has had huge investment in recent years with even more on the way. With attractions to suit every age including a Ferris Wheel, roller-coaster and even roller skating and funky food, such as Naughty Floss. This is truly a unique location which every inch is instagramable – you can even get married here.

TIP: Dreamland shuts at 6pm so make sure you go early to fit everything in.

Head to Ziggyy’s Rooftop bar to catch those final rays of the day and watch the incredible sunsets whilst sipping cocktails.

3.    Fish & Chips
You can’t go to the seaside and not get Fish and Chips, we found a little place called ‘Peter’s Fish Factory Margate’ right by the pier, when we went the queue was HUGE but it’s worth the wait.

4.    Turner Contemporary Gallery
The Turner Contemporary Gallery stands in awe at the edge of the seaside and it is free to enter, which is always a bonus although places like this do survive on the kind donations from their visitors. The gallery has a rolling programme of exhibitions and is great to wonder around.
I was only there for a day so please note there are so many other things to see and do and I hope to be back soon.
