Dreamland Margate is considered to be the oldest-surviving amusement park in Great Britain: the site of Dreamland (as it was re-named in 1920) dates back to the British railway boom and the early 1870s when, in its original form, the ‘Hall by the Sea’ was operated by the circus tycoon,‘Lord’ George Sanger.
Following a £25 million investment from Arrowgrass Capital Parners, Dreamland reopened in May 2017. The park has been re-landscaped and has meticulously restored vintage rides, world-class entertainmentspaces, modern interactive art installations, contemporary street food, eclectic bars and live entertainment, with a backdrop of Margate beach.
It is less than 90 minutes from London by train with Margate Station only a 5-minute walk away. 49 Marine Terrace, Margate, Kent, CT9 1XJ.
