Dreamland: The Day Out With A Difference!

Dreamland is a day out with a difference! Following significant additional investment in 2017, the amusement park was re-landscaped to provide a space that brings together lovingly restored vintage rides set against the backdrop of the beach…and so much more!


With art installations – including an interactive marble run and a mirrored spinning top, adventurous street food from around the world served from vintage trucks, unique bars – including a bar under a giant slide and one among the tree tops, and an eclectic programme of live events.

A stand-out cultural destination, the park has a garden walkway that gives everyone the opportunity to admire its antique menagerie cages from the 1800s, capturing part of the site’s rich history.


The ride line-up features the UK”s oldest wooden rollercoaster – the grade 2* listed Scenic Railway, the Magic Mouse, Wedgwood Tea Cups, and the Waltzer has been painstakingly restored to its former 1940s glory.

There’s plenty of fun for the little ones, with a selection of smaller rides to enjoy, as well as live shows from Teddy and Betty bear and pop-up entertainment throughout the park.

On the seafront, the original 1930s Cinque Ports pub has being brought back to life, offering modern pub fare with a front row view of the beach. Ziggy’s Rooftop Bar also launched this year, bringing Margate’s only rooftop bar offering unparalleled vistas over the iconic ‘JMW Turner’ skyline.

The reimagining of Dreamland plays a major role in the ongoing transformation of Margate’s thriving seafront district into a world-class attraction for both local residents and tourists.
