Dreaming of venturing out more? Of riding trains? Of spinning in a big wheel? Of feeling wind through you hair?
The big wheel you can see here is at Margate’s aptly-named theme park, Dreamland. There has been an amusement park here since the 1880s, though it has gone through some closed years. It closed in 2003 but was eventually renovated and reopened in 2015. The company sadly went into liquidation, but further renovation tool place and it opened again in 2017, and is enjoying popularity again. This year it will be celebrating its 100th anniversary, having taken on the name “Dreamland” in 1920.
Dreamland big wheel, Margate, September 2015
I was back in Margate earlier this year and there was no sign of the classic big wheel. It had been taken down for checks and repairs during the winter season. I am assuming it is now back on the skyline, but the park is, of course, closed during COVID-19 lockdown.
