Margate pub history index
The Arcadian was more a
Hotel than a public house, its name arising from The Fort Arcade on Fort
Road, now Hill. With a panoramic view of Margate bay from its windows, the
hotel was ideally placed for visiting sea farers and holiday makers alike.
The rescued crew of the Friend to All Nations Surfboat Disaster of 1897, were taken to the Arcadian Hotel and placed into the care of Mr. and Mrs. Lilley who for many years had acted on behalf of the Shipwrecked Mariners Society. By the late 1950's the Hotel had been turned into holiday apartments and are now a block of flats.
