Regenerating Margate

About Us

Margate Estates Limited is the parent company of Dreamland, with a long-term vision to regenerate Margate.

We are in the process of reviving Dreamland, transforming it into a year-round visitor destination offering a vibrant mix of rides, music and leisure facilities in an incredible setting.

To date we have invested over £50 million to achieve this and are part of a town-wide effort to reactivate this unique seaside destination.

Our ambition is that Margate becomes one of the UK’s leading cultural hubs and a place to visit for a week; not a day.

That means we need a long-term plan to create more things to do, places to stay and the local infrastructure to support it. And above all, keeping it Margate.

We’re here for the long run, which is why we’ve invested in land and buildings near Dreamland. The first step to bring our vision to life is to build a new hotel for Margate on the seafront. Somewhere for residents and visitors alike, creating jobs and promoting growth.

We want to work together with residents, Thanet District Council and other local businesses to help deliver this vision and make sure it works for Margate. If you want to help Margate’s revival, we’d love to hear your thoughts.

Why Margate?

Margate has a rich cultural heritage and with its unique assets of a sandy beach, harbour and rich townscape, the town is undergoing an urban renaissance. 

It has inspired artists from Tracey Emin, Vincent van Gogh and Augustus Pugin and the creative arts are once again driving the town’s revival. While the Turner Contemporary has spearheaded the cultural regeneration, the town’s unused warehouse spaces make it ideal for private art galleries.

For more than 100-years Margate has drawn big-name acts, from the Beatles to the Kaiser Chiefs. More recently, it has become a top destination for DJs and artists, with DJ Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Sarah Cox all spinning tracks.

Margate Estates believes that the town has a unique appeal and one that provides enormous opportunities. By working with others that are committed to this creative resurgence, we aim to build Dreamland into a world-class visitor destination and provide workspace and facilities for creative industries to thrive.
