     Dreamland Ballroom, later the Dreamland Squash Club then offices. Now a venue, perhaps inappropriately called Hall by the Sea. The result of several extensions and refits to south of the abandoned LCDR constructed railway terminus, through Lord George Sanger's operation of Hall by the Sea and his menagerie pleasure gardens. Sections of the original menagerie perimeter wall on the west side was twice reused during this time with infilling and cladding added to make up the difference both in ground levels and roofline. The building largely survives in this form now as a shell after a privately funded restoration of works with stabilisation, repointing, re-cladding and some rebuild. A less appeasing third extension had been added to the south and east of Sanger's cottage in the 1940s forming perhaps a backstage area for the ballroom. It was removed in 1998 by Jimmy Godden, unfortunately also taking Sanger's cottage with it.

     Lord George Sanger's 'Margate Abbey' ruins, as seen in many published postcards. This substantial structure built in 1874 as ruin by design would have served as the original entrance gate into the menagerie pleasure gardens. It survived through the new Dreamland Zoo of the 1970s, before sadly being cleared. Now listed grade II, only a small section of the original western perimeter wall, 3 cages and a modified folly of Sanger's menagerie remains today and has now been stabilised/part-restored.
