Ellington Park, Ramsgate just a few minutes walk from the town's train station and High Street area is a hidden gem.
Ellington Park was laid out in 1893 on land once part of the estate surrounding Ellington House. The park was designed by the Victorian landscape company Joseph Cheal and Son, known for their work at Hever Castle and Kirkstall Abbey.
Today, many of the heritage features of the park remain including trees, which dapple the rolling slopes of the park, it is a well-used and loved feature of community life - a great place for families, dog walkers or to sit around enjoying a picnic.
