Buckle up for retro thrills at Margate’s Dreamland

Margate, Kent

Where else can you clamber aboard stylishly restored, recreated and retro-fitted rides and amusements from the Golden Age of British seaside hols?

Capitalising on Margate’s growing reputation as a brand new capital of British cool, Dreamland Margate reopens for the season 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, adventurous street food, unique bars and an eclectic programme of live events. Plus, our new Teddy and Betty Land will be a new area designed for your little funsters.

Our 15,000 capacity event space will be ready to welcome international and homegrown acts to Dreamland, which sees us put Margate back on the music venue map. The original 1930s Cinque Ports pub is being brought back to life and we’ll see the addition of Margate’s only rooftop bar offering unparalleled vistas over the iconic ‘JMW Turner’ skyline.
