Tivoli pleasure gardens

Tivoli Park today is overgrown and a thick woodland, in 1829 the area became known as Tivoli Gardens and became a fashionable open air pleasure garden with entertainment of all the social graces of the period. I have attached from the Margate Historical Society archive a researched account of the history of Tivoli Gardens. It is possible to identify some features that remain today but it will take a bit of exploring. Also there are two prints of the area from that period, one dated 1838 and the other undated is the Tivoli Gateway which was in Hartsdown Road. Please feel free to download and copy, for further information the Margate Museum archive is still available to the public.
