Dreamland park opened in July 1920 and millions flocked to enjoy its
attractions in the decades that followed. A visit to the Kent coast
resort wasn’t complete without a ride on the famed Scenic Railway,
the Looping Star, the Big Wheel or the dodgem cars.
Dreamland’s trendsetting 1930s cinema
led the way in design while the ballroom became famous for dancing
and big name music concerts. Its restaurants fed the hordes
descending on Margate for their beanfeast outings. Later on, it
would hold its own as an exciting theme park.
The resort’s decline in recent
years has taken its toll, leaving many yearning for a return to
simpler times when candy floss and kiss me quick hats were the order
of the day.
This edition of Dreamland
Remembered, updated and expanded to celebrate the park’s 90th
anniversary, contains a nostalgic collection of nearly 250
illustrations from its earliest days to the latest ideas to create a
heritage theme park.
