Dating in Margate: Recapture the good old days

Much like a 99 with a flake, Margate is as typically English as a seaside town can be; deckchairs, donkey rides and fish and chips – it’s an image ingrained in our minds. If you spent your childhood in Margate, its latter day decline is a sad sight to behold. Although there have been massive attempts to restore it to its former glory, with the ‘staycation’ evolving into more of a glamorous affair and the beaches of Cornwall seeing more action that Margate Sands, it’s likely that this Kent town will never repeat its Victorian heyday.

But for Margate singles, whether or not the masses return is a little irrelevant. There is simply hope that regeneration will continue to refresh the town and restore Margate to being a proud part of the Kent coast.

When thinking about Margate dating, why not combine the old and the new for an all-round enjoyable date.

Supported by Margate local Tracey Emin, the new Turner Contemporary is one of the main focuses of regenerating Margate and in turn making it the ‘cultural heart of Kent’. As the largest exhibition space in the South East (bar London) it aims to make art relevant for everyone. A great Margate dating idea if one of your free to review matches has a creative side; a visit here is a must for any local, so why not make it a date?

For a really romantic Margate dating experience, look to the Shell Grotto. Shrouded in mystery, the grotto is a chamber and series of underground passages decorated with amazing shell mosaics. First discovered in 1835 by a young man named James Newlove, there is apparently no knowledge of how or why the mosaics were created. If you’re looking for an original and enchanting date, this could be it!

For a slice of traditional Margate, head towards the Old Town. With lots of individual and quirky shops and galleries, this is the place if you want to meet one of your matches for a low-key wander. Although a lot of the town has seen better days, the cobbled streets and old shops retain some of Margate’s original charm. A great Margate dating tip would be to head for the Cupcake Cafe and have a natter with your date over something sweet.

Looking for a free dating idea? One of Margate’s biggest draws has always been its long stretch of sandy beach. Why not ask one of your matches for a walk along the front? It still gets packed during the hotter months and with volleyball games and trampolining going on up and down the sand, it can be a lovely atmosphere. Head to the old-school amusements and challenge your date to a game or two. Winner buys the ice creams!
