Margate Bank Holiday May Saturday 2017 Toast Turner Contemporary and Dreamland photos

I went to Margate today mainly to visit the new Turner Contemporary exhibition and to look at the newly reopened Dreamland.

I enjoyed both, so several significant art exhibitions in Turner Contemporary, Dreamland and Margate Old Town, I will try and do some sort of write up on them eventually. I particularly enjoyed the Michael Armitage exhibition in Turner Contemporary with its strong Impressionist influences both in style and colours and the Barry Kirk exhibition at Dreamland.

Here are the photos I too today, unedited from my camera card pasted straight onto my website.

As I arrived just before 10, the storm clouds were brewing

I got to the Turner Contemporary Café just in time, and this time I did get tea and toast for breakfast
