Guest Post: A Guide to Deal with Discover Deal

Hi, we’re Charlotte and Ben from Discover Deal, we love our town so much we decided to make a website dedicated to it. We cover a lot, from writing about events, creating recipes and reviewing restaurants.

Margate Location House

Margate is full of creatives, which means there is always an exciting project going on. Having seen the Instagram account for Margate Location House, I knew it was somewhere that I needed to visit.

Margate Meets: Chetna Makan

The Great British Bake Off: the channel-hopping show with a presenter shake-up that has been the subject of hot debate, responsible for cake-induced food comas (for me anyway) and THAT baked Alaska situation - it's totally unique and food porn at its best.

California

Things have been quiet on the blogging front lately. It has been a very busy time in life generally but I also recently went on holiday. Naturally this took up a lot of my focus and dare I say it, made me think about somewhere other than Margate ;)

Margate Winter Warmers

It feels like time has barely passed since the summer but Margate has waved goodbye to sandals and deckchairs, and now us locals find ourselves facing those ‘bracing’ winds in woolly hats, as we defiantly trudge across the beach.

Môr

Something I've learnt in the 2010s is that we bloody love a so-called 'lifestyle' store. Never did I expect to see these trendy shops opening in Margate in its gloomy pre-Turner Contemporary years, but they're popping up with pace. The latest and one of the loveliest, is Môr on Fort Hill, opposite the aforementioned gallery.
