Margate Reading Challenge

Marvellous Margate!

These days, Margate fizzes with artistic energy. It has traditional seaside features, a world-class art gallery, sandy beaches and sparkling bays. Not only this, there are cool cafés and tempting shops. It’s very exciting and you’re invited to take part!

Margate’s Old Town is very funky! There are trendy places to eat, art galleries, vintage shops and chilled-out cafes. Also you will find the traditional seaside delights: candyfloss stands; fish and chip shops; seafood stalls.

There is also a fantastic amusement park called Dreamland which has thrilling historic rides, classic side shows and places to eat.

For more than 100-years Margate’s Winter Gardens have drawn big-name music acts, from the Beatles to the Kaiser Chiefs. The town’s Theatre Royal is the second-oldest in the country, while the Tom Thumb Theatre is one of the smallest theatres in the world.

Margate’s jazz festival attracts top bands and has people dancing all over the Old Town. There is a beach volleyball tournament each summer with Britain’s best beach volleyball teams. In August you will see a loud, colourful carnival snaking through the town.

This summer look out for the Margate Rickshaw offering free trips at weekends and school holidays around the Old Town and seafront.
