What to do in Margate
Did you know that our shoes are named after our favourite places in the UK? I thought it would be fitting that we explored each of these places telling our customers what to eat, drink and do. First in our series is Margate, read below to find out more details.

 

With the weather getting colder and the days getting shorter it can be difficult to drag yourself out of bed. Why not cheer yourself up with a short trip to Margate making use of the few warm(er) weekends left before the reality of winter sets in?

 

When I think about Margate it’s not particularly a place I would think to visit in mid-October. However, my Instagram feed over the past few months has been filled with amazing looking treats and hidden gems all found in the seaside town. 

 

Here is our guide to what to get up to in Margate:

 

Places to eat

Great British Pizza: When I saw a picture of this place I knew it was a place I needed to visit. If the pink interior and neon signs haven’t persuaded you to visit then you must be enticed by the amazing looking pizza. Described by Zoe Williams writing for the Sunday Times Telegraph as the ‘best pizza’ she’d ever had, this is saying a lot. This Great British Pizza co. also offers gluten-free bases and vegan options so there's definitely is no excuse not to go!

The Curious Cupcake Cafe: Described on trip advisor as a ‘hidden gem’, The Curious Cupcake Cafe is a quaint little cafe offering lunches, brunches, and cupcakes. Located in the Old Town, the cafe is a great place to visit after a sandy walk on the beach or a trip to Turner Contemporary.

Storeroom: Among the white walls and array of plants, Storeroom serves perhaps the best coffee in Margate. Set in an old print works, the cafe offers coffee from their local roastery: Curve. 

 

 

Places to drink

Post Office:  The art deco themed bar ‘Post Office’ is an absolute must visit for any millennial. From the hanging plants to the gold accents this place is Instagram heaven. Why not get a peach Bellini in a crystal glass to cure those winter blues?

Sun Deck: A popular summer hang out, The Sun Deck is a community space offering street food restaurants and bars. What was once a derelict space by the seafront has turned into a social hub for people of all ages to enjoy.

 

Things to do:

Dreamland: Dreamland is a top destination for many. Offering rides, drinks, rollerskating, food and events, Dreamland again has something for everyone.

Walk along the beach: Of course, Margate is a seaside town so it’s only fitting that a walk along the beach would be one of the top things to do. Although sunbathing and paddling are out of the question in mid-November, there could be a more perfect place to take a walk in the autumn air and watch a sunset

Cliffs: Whether you want a new vinyl, your haircut, a yoga class or just a cup of coffee, Cliffs is the place for you. Open every day of the week Cliffs is a place you could spend a good hour or two in exploring all it has to offer. Not only this but Cliffs works hard to be sustainable and environment in many ways.
