What is so special about Margate? Well, Margate is infamous for the rivalry between the ‘Mod’ and ‘Rockers’ in the 60’s and again in the 80’s with the ‘Skinheads’ gangs. Nowadays, we have heard on the grapevine that Margate is now the new spot for modern creatives and hipsters. City dwellers feeling pushed out by high house prices, rising rents, and overcrowding are beginning to leave behind the bustling busy London metropolis to set up new roots in this popular coastal destination.
To discover more about why we were drawn to this popular seaside location we invited a group of London’s press and fashion lifestyle bloggers - Patrick, Kitty, Marcus, Phie, Stephen, Tommy, hosted and photographed by the talented Garcon Jon, to journey with us along the Kent coast from Ramsgate to Margate, to take in the scenery, experience the coastal lifestyle and visit some key attractions that might actually make you fall in love with the famous coastal town.
