Which part of England is Margate?
City and port of the United Kingdom, belonging to the district of Thanet, in the county of Kent (England), to the SE of the country. Margate is located on the N coast of the Isle of Thanet, on the south-eastern border of the Thames Estuary, 5 km NW of Ramsgate and 118 E of London. According to the last census of the city (1991), its population is around 60,000 inhabitants.
In the northeast of the county of Kent, Margate spends its days remembering the 60s, when this coastal town was considered one of the most popular destinations by the English, especially for residents in the capital, London.
Margate was stopped in time. Its sandy beaches continue to face the storms and the labeling of the names of the businesses survive the erosion of the paint on the facades. The neons light up when night comes in a somewhat tacky combination that, however, reminds of childhood summers. The former Georgian residences have given way to restaurants and clothing stores. Many of the pensions and hotels are still standing on the beachfront although with less affluence and the arcades are still full of all kinds of machines that are evocations of an afternoon of family and entertainment.
