Updated to include the opening of the park in June 2015!
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 or the Dodgems.
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,
would hold its own as an exciting theme park.
The resort’s decline in recent
years has left its mark, leaving many yearning for a return to
simpler times when ice cream, candy floss and kiss me quick hats
made for heady days out at the seaside.
Dreamland Revived contains a nostalgic collection of nearly 250
illustrations from its earliest days to its
reopening as Britain's first
heritage theme park.
