Margate

Situated 16 miles to the north east of Canterbury, has a population of over 50,000. Margate’s proximity to London and its nine miles of sandy beaches made it a popular resort in Victorian times and it continued to develop throughout the twentieth century as a seaside resort, sometimes referred to as the Blackpool of the south, with its large funfair and amusement park. The map below shows the features of the town of Margate as it was in the mid twentieth century. Click on a selected area of the map below to see an enlargement.
