Shell Grotto, Margate / This underground cavern of caves discovered in 1835, still baffles people today. No-one knows  how or why it was built, nor who the architect was. It was discovered quite by accident, and is has been a tourist attraction in the town since 1837. Plus, it's only a matter of 5 miles away from me.
