"If its regeneration continues at its current pace, this historic Cinque Port could easily outshine its neighbours." Coast Magazine
The history-rich Royal Harbour with a continental air
The historic waterfront at Ramsgate has a lively cosmopolitan feel. Select an alfresco café, sip a drink and see the yachts bobbing in the picturesque marina - this Cinque Port is the only ‘Royal Harbour’ in the country. Enjoy sandy bays alongside a working marina
Ramsgate’s exquisite architecture brings together Italianate Greenhouse, Georgian terraces and regency villas. Plus buildings designed by pioneering Victorian architect Augustus Pugin – discover more at the Visitor Centre before seeing his creations on a self-guided walking tour.
At the Ramsgate Maritime Museum discover the unique Ramsgate Meridian and the steam tug Cervia, and Sundowner - one of the Dunkirk little ships. Then don a hard hat and join an underground tour of the WWII-era Ramsgate Tunnels.
Or be drawn by Ramsgate’s links to the first Saxons, Hengist and Horsa, Vincent Van Gogh, Wilkie Collins and Jane Austen.
Whatever prompts you to come, Ramsgate won’t disappoint.
