If you’re visiting Margate my number one must see is Dreamland, this beautiful retro theme park is the perfect way to spend a day!

Then I’d recommend taking a walk along the sea front towards the old town to explore vintage and antique stores, with plenty of places to stop and refuel for more mooching around.margate_008margate_052

margate_057margate_05512. GB Pizza Company
Before heading back to London we popped for dinner at Great British Pizza Co. The pizza’s are real tasty and super thin. I opted for chicken, BBQ and red onions, Dave went for chorizo & chilli  (his fovorite) and Clare (Dave’s sister) went for the classic Margate-rita… see what they’ve done there 🙂
the staff are super friendly, the decor is totally instagramable and lust worthy, I’d love a living room like this!
