I recently visited Margate on the south coast of England to watch Dulwich Hamlet football club thump the home team 4-1.
I also made sure I got there early enough to take in the sights of this fine town. Here’s 65 photos from my trip:
Greeting you as you leave the station is the startling Brutalist 18-storey residential apartment block, Arlington House, which was completed in 1963.
It’s still the tallest building in Margate and remains unpopular with some residents.
I was treated to a splendid February afternoon.
