Margate’s Dreamland park opened in July 1920 and millions flocked to enjoy its attractions in the decades that followed. A visit to the Kent coast resort wasn’t complete without a ride on the famed Scenic Railway, the Looping Star, the Big Wheel or the dodgem cars.

Dreamland’s trendsetting 1930s cinema led the way in design while the ballroom became famous for dancing and big name music concerts. Its restaurants fed the hordes descending on Margate for their beanfeast outings. Later on, it would hold its own as an exciting theme park.

The resort’s decline in recent years has taken its toll, leaving many yearning for a return to simpler times when candy floss and kiss me quick hats were the order of the day.

This edition of Dreamland Remembered, updated and expanded to celebrate the park’s 90th anniversary, contains a nostalgic collection of nearly 250 illustrations from its earliest days to the latest ideas to create a heritage theme park.

Pleasureland Memories

The Pleasureland Amusement Park at Southport has been a major feature of the town’s tourist industry since the 1920s and long before that the seaward side of the town was synonymous with public amusement. This book tells the story of how Pleasureland rose from the foreshore sands, despite opposition from Southport’s elite – and how a ruthless fight for territory was fought within the park itself, a battle in which only the politically savvy survived. Packed with vintage photos.
