Margate - on a par with Dubrovnik and Puerto Rico?

Written by Nathan Lake on

The Rough Guide has chosen Margate as one of The Ten Best Places to visit in the world! This has come of something of a surprise to the bemused residents of Kent. Of course those of you who have read my earlier blogs will have noticed that I have been rooting for Margate and am delighted my faith in its regeneration seems to be vindicated. But even I was not expecting it to rocket up to the Top Ten in the World! All I can say is Viva Margate! Let's hope Local Lass Made Good - Tracey Emin CBE - will be back to open a restored Dreamland later this year! Meanwhile, the Turner Contemporary is always worth a visit and I urge you once again to sit in the shelter where T S Eliot mused on Margate Sands.
