Ramsgate Costumed Walks
Our group is run by dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers. Whatever the weather, so long as members of the public turn up, we carry on the walks.
We do not make a charge for the walks and ask only for donations towards the coat of costumes and printing of leaflets.
Join our guided walks around Historical Ramsgate and meet famous characters from the past...
