MARGATE ON THE KENT COAST.
ON THE TRAIN TO THE SEA SIDE!

Margate is one of many seaside resorts in Kent . Only an hour by train from London , its a great weekend summer destination.

THE FUNNY HAT BRIGADE.

Once we arrive at Margate station we always head for the beach front and the amusement arcades. A tradition is to head for the 'head shop ' ( see tips ) for our silly hats !! Then a game of football on the beach.

    When i was a teenager there was a place called Dreamland, which was a funfair, then there was the Dreamland concert hall where i saw many of the day's top groups--T-Rex, Marmalade, Equals, Status Quo and countless others. I wonder if the place still exists

    Thought i'd check out the 'competion' before I do my page!!! Next time you visit, try The Ali Raj indian restaurant. Always a winner, and close to the station too!
