The Town of Margate
Margate (population about 57,000) is a coastal resort on the English Channel in southeast England, and includes the district of Cliftonville. It is part of the Isle of Thanet, which, although originally separated from the mainland by the Wantsum Channel, is now practically joined to the mainland as a result of the build up of silt and shingle. Margate is in the local government district of Thanet in the county of Kent, formed in 1974 by the merger of the municipal borough of Margate with of the municipal borough of Ramsgate and adjoining areas.
