Travel Tips for Margate
I prefer beaches which are not too crowded, with great views and with some 'treasures': shelfs or stones. So then I have an extra activity in the beach. I can search for some nice stones or shelfs for to take them back home for my collection or just to take nice photos at the beach.
"In 1835 Mr James Newlove lowered his young son Joshua into a hole in the ground that had appeared during the digging of a duck pond. Joshua emerged describing tunnels covered with shells. He had discovered the Shell Grotto; 70ft of winding underground passages leading to an oblong chamber, its walls decorated with strange symbols mosaiced in millions of shells. Is it an ancient pagan temple? A meeting place for some secret cult? Nobody can explain who built this amazing place, or why, or when, but since its discovery visitors from all over the world have been intrigued by the beautiful mosaic and the unsolved mystery." A quote from the website, which describes it better than I could, as I haven't visited since I was a kid!

"THE FUNNY HAT BRIGADE."
Once we arrive at Margate station we always head for the beach front and the amusement arcades. A tradition is to head for the 'head shop ' ( see tips ) for our silly hats !! Then a game of football on the beach.
