Dreamland Margate

The Dreamland amusement park first opened in 1920, as holiday makers and day-trippers, mainly from London began to arrive in numbers to the East Kent coastal resort of Margate.

Dreamland Margate, UK.

After years of decline, however, many of Dreamland's big rides were dismantled in the 1990s, with the park finally closing in 2003.

After years of renovation, Dreamland finally reopened in June this year with beautifully restored retro-fitted rides and amusements taking visitors back to the golden age of the great British seaside holiday. The Dreamland Arcade for example is a classic British seaside arcade with modern and vintage games including Punch & Judy, pinball and retro roller skating.

The rides include a wooden Scenic Railway, the oldest roller coaster in Britain, a 1920's style Helter Skelter and a Wedgewood tea cups ride.

Dreamland Margate, Kent.

With Kent voted Europe's top family holiday destination by readers of Lonely Planet, there's no better time to take the children.

The food on offer ranges from fish and chips, of course to spicy Thai curries. The art deco ballroom hosts a variety of events throughout the year including Soulgate on Sea and Screamland at Halloween time.
