Christmas Comes To Margate, Broadstairs And Ramsgate

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas with glittering lights, the humming of festive carols and to do lists.

‘Tis the season to be jolly and there’s lots more on offer in Margate, Broadstairs, Ramsgate this festive season to keep you full of good cheer.

From traditional Christmas light switch-ons, to pantomimes with cries of 'He's behind you, Oh no he isn't!’. Don’t forget to visit Father Christmas in his grotto by train or through the magical elf forest with you present list! Have you been bad or good?

If that's not enough to get you in the spirit, browse the fairs of gifts, goodies, stocking fillers and that last minute present or join in a chorus of ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas’. Take a way through a Winter Wonderland as Dreamland is transformed. Read our Dickensian Christmas blog for more inspiration
