Margate

Margate is a place where memories are as golden as the sand my parents used to buy a runner about ticket for the train and take the family for our fortnight holiday, we always went to dreamland  my favourite was the water tubs and the small train. The magical pleasures of childhood can be recaptured and relived time and time again. This is the place for buckets and spades, donkey rides, kiss-me-quick hats, candy floss and sandcastles.

Margate Clock Tower.

Clock tower built 1887 to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria and equipped with a clock by Potts of Leeds. 5 hemispherical bells were provided for it.

Margate  was the first resort to have donkey rides in 1790 and the first to introduce deck chairs in 1898. Since then generations of visitors have fallen under its spell.

Margate is a seaside town in the district of Thanet in Kent.
