A seaside town

I really like living in Margate! It doesn't have a great reputation but bits of it are great! There's a wonderful view out to sea, across the harbour and we have the occassional beautiful sunset. It's quite warm for England, although we very rarely get snow because of that fact. There are some reasonable shops, lots of good pubs, and some cheap restaurants that serve good food. There's also some lovely walks along the coast (if you go to the right bit!)

The surrounding area

If you visit Margate for more than a day or so, you might find time to visit Broadstairs and Ramsgate as well. Fellow VTers haven't got much to say about these great towns, so I will be writing my own pages soon. I've made a very brief start on Broadstairs in response to a couple of inaccurate tips I read recently! Check it out as I build it.

    Can't say I recognise any of the places you mention, except sand and cliffs. last there in about 1950when y uncle still lived there. I'd love to see the shell cave.
