Last weekend I was lucky enough to be taken to Margate's Dreamland for a day out with Nike, to celebrate the launch of the Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit (as modeled by me!). We were blessed with sunshine, so a trip to the seaside was perfectly timed.
Me and fellow blogger Illustrated Ella enjoyed a day of rides, BBQ and prosecco. I say a day of rides, but I'm a little bit of a wuss, and didn't go on many! But I did manage about 3, Ella is definitely braver than me!
I had never been to Margate (I'm a Brighton girl), so I was surprised it was only about 1 hour and a half from London. The Dreamland has had an Wayne Hemingway make-over, making it a kitsch, retro fantasy land.
Dreamland isn't on the beach, like Brighton and I presume Blackpool, its a little set back, and more like a mini theme park. What was quite awesome was that they have 3 private beach huts to rent, and Nike had reserved all 3. This mean we had somewhere to leave our bags, along with a permanent bar man to serve us what we needed (I went for prosecco!). They also sent some chefs up to cook the BBQ for us.
The gift shop was pretty epic guys! I definitely raided it for some goodies. I'd try Margaret again for sure, we didn't have time to check out the town, but I hear they have a large vintage scene with lots of great shops, so perhaps on a sunny day I'll head there instead of B-town.
