Revamped Dreamland Margate Will Offer Contemporary Culture and Vintage British Fun

Revamped Dreamland Margate Will Offer Contemporary Culture and Vintage British Fun

Dreamland in Margate is set to unveil its £15 million makeover on April 28th this year.

The rejuvenation marks the start of a new era for the theme park, reports Kent Live.

Jennie Double, Commercial Director at Dreamland Margate, said the new park’s combination of contemporary food and culture with vintage rides and British heritage was something only Dreamland could offer.

The programme of major restoration works and upgrades has been made possible by an injection of funds from offshore company Arrowgrass.

Historic rides have been restored including the Grade II* listed Scenic Railway and the Waltzer.

Other attractions include the Brooklands Speedway, Wedgwood Tea Cups and The Crazy Mouse.

The landscape of the park has also been remodelled with the addition of a new garden boardwalk.

Food has been given a more contemporary edge. Options including wood fired pizza to Mexican tacos will add a taste of street food culture.

The 1930s Cinque Ports pub on the seafront, once the haunt of mods and rockers, is also undergoing refurbishment.

A rooftop bar with views over the town is also on the cards.

The new Teddy and Betty Land, aimed at families, offers new shows and rides.

Visitors who expect a liberal helping of nostalgia at Dreamland can look forward to a retro Roller Disco and vintage arcades.

Live music is also being catered to, with The Kills and Slaves already lined up to play in 2017.
