Margate: 2013’s hotspot

It’s ironic that a low-cost airline – the industry seen as being responsible for decimating British seaside towns with their cheap package holidays to the Costas back in the late 1960s and 70s – is using a poorly thought through ad campaign pitching Margate against Malaga in 2013. This despite Margate being named by the esteemed Rough Guides as one of 2013’s hottest destinations in the world – we rub shoulders with Stockholm, Dubrovnik and Puerto Rico. Some may have mocked Margate’s positioning in this list, but it speaks volumes about the town’s exciting upswing and the efforts of its inhabitants. We love Margate, as you all know, and we spend our days showing off about its amazing beaches, galleries, people, skies, restaurants, shops and architecture. We’re very lucky to call this amazing place home.
