Colourful Margate


Margate is a coastal resort in Kent in the south-east of England.  It has long been popular with Londoners seeking a seaside break, but it has long struggled against foreign competition.  With efficient train services from London it still makes a perfect day trip.

It has a typical British seaside resort front, with amusement arcades, ice cream and fish and chips.

The bright pink umbrellas and orange doors on the harbour wall looked beautiful in the July sunshine, and the reflections in the shallow water caught my eye.

  1. I am glad you shared a small portion of this part of our world. Never been there and never will get to go. The pink umbrellas added a perfect touch.


  2. It really does look neat to see the pink reflected in the water. I would be the one down there walking barefoot. I remember in the old movie, Pride and Prejudice, they were going to have to move to Margate when there daughter ran off with an officer….and didn’t get married! Scandalous! Enjoy your weekend!
