My Holidays In Margate - a Memory of Margate.

My mum & dad used to take me and my sister to Margate (Cliftonville) for 2 whole weeks back in the late 50s/early60s. I shall look up some old photos when I have a chance. Although we didn't have much money then, we took a bus from East Malling, Kent to the Maidstone Bus Station where we travelled on the sea coach to Margate, stopping off at a cafe in Molash for our halfway break. We visited Margate once last year and were so surprised that it is not the same anymore. We did find The Shell Grotto which I can remember. We were also there a few weeks ago and sat on the beach. Not the same any more and even Dreamland costs quite a lot of money now.
