Just wondering whether Margate is worth a day out following Mary Portas? Has the town centre improved? I last went there nearly five years ago. The Turner gallery hadn't been built ten and I remember the town as a dump. Has the situation improved?
I found it interesting that the programme yesterday mentioned Padstow as a foodie town. Margate has amazing local produce and lots of fish, it's a shame a foodie scene can't be introduced there. The old market place is doing well, a high street full of vintage shops would be great too. I heard that Wayne Hemingway was taking control of Dreamland and making it a haven for vintage fairground rides. If they reopened the cinema at the top of the high street, they could screen art-house films. The beaches are gorgeous - we go just for those. Chuck in a few nice places to eat and I would go there on holiday rather that Whitstable.
