Colourful Fun in Margate!

Kate Marsden

Several weeks ago we headed off to Margate for a couple of days to see what everyone’s been talking about! We weren’t really sure what to expect, but we were rather excited about our accommodation. We stayed at Big Bit (you can find it on Air B&B here - can’t recommend the place enough) and it was VERY colourful…

As well as spending lots of time photographing our apartment (!!) we also spent a few hours at Dreamland where I could happily have ridden on the Scenic Railway all day. Next time we’re going to go roller skating…

Then there was the beach and the wonderful Turner Contemporary Gallery (the current exhibition of seaside photography is brilliant). Plus the mods were in town on the Saturday and the bikers on the Sunday so lots of differet things to see which really amused the small-ish boy.

We enjoyed exploring all the vintage shops in the Old Town (giant neon signage anyone?!) and did come away with a couple of (smaller) bits and bobs. Also had a fantastic dinner at Buoy and Oyster with views out to sea.

A bit of a longer drive than to our usual seaside spots but we’ll definitely be back!
