Margate is in the Isle of Thanet, in East Kent, South-East England. It lays claim to being the first seaside health resort - established as such in 1736.
Before then it was a fairly important port for the area, trade was officially fishing and sailing grain to London
(unofficially, much of the area's wealth came from smuggling)

YES, we do get snow in Margate - not often and not deep
