12.06.17 // Margate

Many people think of Margate's heyday as the popular seaside resort whenever it's mentioned, but to us locals it's been pretty dead for such a long time. For a few years there has been a great deal of investment in the town so I figured while I was back home it was as  good a time as any to go exploring and see what it had to offer. 

I'm not going to lie but I was extremely surprised by the number of independent restaurants and cafes that were on offer...we ate at a place called GB Pizza which was actually really good! There are so many cute little shops as well as vintage shops, so it's really good to just wander about. There's also the Turner Contemporary gallery which is quite nice to just have a look at (although I got so confused by the pieces that were currently on exhibit as they seemed pretty abstract!). It's also worth mentioning the beach and the amusement park Dreamland, which both have their obvious plus points! 

If you're in the area I'd definitely say go and have a nosey round the town, it's so nice and there is so much you can get up to. With new bars, restaurants and shops popping up all the time it's worth a visit...
