Welcome back to Margate’s Dreamland

Seaside dream

Margate’s fortunes have moved in rollercoaster fashion, with giddy peaks and dramatic plunges, so it’s only ftting that the latest attraction in its post-Noughties upswing is a revitalised fairground. Dreamland was a fxture of this Kentish seaside town from 1921 until the early 21st century, and after an 11-year campaign to rescue the park, it is opening its gates again. Centre stage goes to the Scenic Railway – the oldest rollercoaster in the UK and the frst to win listed status. It’s joined by 16 other rides, from the Hurricane Jets of the Dan Dare era, to a 1970s Chair-o-Plane, along with arcades, fsh and chips, roller disco, ice cream cones, and anything else that might break the seaside holiday nostalgia-metre like a strongman landing a winning hammer swing on a high striker.
