The Shell Grotto Margate
Kent
The Shell Grotto is one of the world's most mysterious places. It is made up of a maze of underground rooms and passageways, covered by 2000 sq ft of exquisite shell mosaics. Nobody knows who created it or when it was created, although many people believe it is a 2000 year old temple. It has also been suggested to be a meeting place for a secret pagan sect, and most recently, a sun temple, designed to indicate the fertile planting season! However, whatever the grotto was originally built for, it still remains a breathtaking site, and well worth a visit. Tel: 01843 220008
