Capitalising on Margate’s swiftly growing reputation as a brand new capital of British cool, Dreamland Margate will reopen with a wealth of new and rejuvenated features set to redefine ‘a day out at the seaside’.
The amusement park is being re-landscaped to provide a space that brings together lovingly restored vintage rides set against a backdrop of art installations (including an interactive marble run and a mirrored spinning top), adventurous street food, unique bars and an eclectic programme of live events. A new garden boardwalk will also give everyone the opportunity to admire the antique menagerie cages from the 1800s, capturing part of the site’s unique history.
The ride line-up will feature some old favourites alongside some new additions including: the Brooklands Speedway, the Wedgwood Tea Cups and the Crazy Mouse. The Waltzer has been painstakingly restored to its former 1940s glory and our new Teddy and Betty Land, an area designed for your little funsters, features Betty’s Beehive Coaster.
The 15,000 capacity event space will be ready to welcome international and homegrown acts to Dreamland, which firmly sees us put Margate back on the music venue map. This is alongside the legendary 2,000 capacity Hall By The Sea, that once famously played host to The Rolling Stones and The Who.
On the seafront, the original 1930s Cinque Ports pub is being brought back to life, offering modern pub fare with a front row view of the beach. This summer will also see the addition of Margate’s only rooftop bar offering unparalleled vistas over the iconic ‘JMW Turner’ skyline.
The reimagining of the famed destination is a key stage to play a major role in the on-going transformation of Margate’s thriving seafront district into a world-class attraction for both local residents and tourists.
