What must I see in Margate?

Dreamland, the iconic Grade II-listed amusement park from the 19th century is one of the most prominent attractions in Margate. After sadly falling into disrepair and closing in the 2000s, the park today is bubbling with merriment following a high-octane refurbishment. As well as the new, Margate's Old Town, with its gorgeous Victorian and Georgian architecture, is a sight to behold. The scenic streets are lined with shops, cafes, and quality restaurants for every budget. Don't miss Turner Contemporary, the largest art gallery near Margate Harbour. The Shell Grotto, an ornate subterranean passageway intricately festooned with 4.6 million shells, is an unusual yet fascinating wonder that still leaves many experts and visitors bewildered. Another fantastic photo-op can be found at the 16th-century Tudor House and its well-preserved interior, which also provides a window into the rich past of Margate. Fans of Margate history should then head over to Theatre Royal, built in 1787, which is one of the grandest monuments in town. Its beautiful auditorium hosts ballets, musicals, children's plays, and comedy shows. Similarly, Draper's Mill in the southern part of Margate is another great attraction. Erected in 1845, the mill continues to operate thanks to the work of a not-for-profit trust. As you can see, Margate has a huge host of varied attractions, picking between them can be tough! Luckily, eDreams has all of your accommodation decisions covered when you book online, so that’s one less thing to think about.​
