just back from a few days in merry Margate staying at the fabulous boutique b&b the reading rooms run by lovely couple Louise and Liam. Margate has always been a favourite seaside destination, especially to Londoners, and tho its slightly more shabby than chic these days its in the process of a huge regeneration with the turner contemporary gallery due to open early in 2011. a few of the places i visited and loved include:
the harbour cafe & kitchen - laid back, lovely coffee & food and views of the harbour
bebeached - a wonderful cafe on the harbour arm with great views of Margate and the sea
the indian princess - mouthwatering Michelin guide indian restaurant - a real treat + worth going to Margate for!
and here's a little film, made by Lindsay Anderson no less, about Margate in the 50s...hilarious...
