Margate Old Town

Gems of Margate Old Town

There are so many interesting independent shops to explore in the Old Town that it’s hard to know where to begin.  I’ve selected just a few of the many gems of Margate Old Town.

Fox and Spindle

Filled with quirky gifts and accessories, dresses with fabulously unusual prints and eye-catching jewellery, you will have a tough time deciding which thing you love the most at Fox and Spindle.

Vera’s Kitchen

Serving freshly baked, homemade cakes with friendly and welcoming service, Vera’s Kitchen is the perfect spot for afternoon tea.  The cosy cafe also had a delightful courtyard garden at the back.

Ward and Ball

Owners Graham and Suzie have searched high and low to bring you the most unusual collection of antiques that you will ever find in one place.  From artisan bowls to original French furniture, a vintage mannequin hand to a taxidermy swan, you can find is all at Ward and Ball.  Their stock changes all the time so there is always something new to be found.

Design Home Interiors

Who doesn’t love exploring a ‘nice shop’?  A nice shop is a shop filled with so many lovely things that you don’t know what to look at first. Everywhere you turn in Design Home Interiors there is something gorgeous sitting next to something else that is equally gorgeous. Make sure you set aside some time potter around and see what you can discover.

    Vera’s Kitchen looks like a dream! And I think I could spend hours exploring Design Home Interiors. I also love shopping for antiques, so this looks like such a fun place!

    I had no idea Margate was like this. I absolutely love exploring independent shops and I love the type of shops full of cute bits and pieces.
