Mini guide to Ramsgate

     

The thriving commercial port of Ramsgate is located on the southeastern edge of the Isle of Thanet, situated southeast of London. It is a popular family holiday destination known for its array of attractions and sights, and the activity centres at the beautiful Royal Harbour next to the marina, which is flanked by impressive cliffs bedecked with Georgian terraces.

The seafront has undergone dramatic revitalisation in recent years and together with the attractive marina and Royal Harbour it boasts the Maritime Museum. Situated in a 19th century clock house, the museum sits next to the impressive Model Village, St Augustine's Abbey and Westcliffe Leisure Park.

Pegwell Bay Nature Reserve lies to the south of town and consists of mudflats and sand dunes with an array of wildlife. Other sights here include the Viking ship that Hugin sailed from Denmark to mark the Jutish invasion of Britain in the year 449 AD, while the Motor Museum in the town displays all manner of vehicles.

There is also plenty of opportunity to shop in Ramsgate, with its range of local stores and national outlets, while golf and water sports can be enjoyed nearby. Ramsgate is loaded with cafés, restaurants, bars, traditional pubs and nightclubs and the harbour area is the best place to go at night.

Attractions outside of Ramsgate include Margate, with its lovely seafront and huge Dreamland Fun Park leisure complex, the charming neighbouring town of Broadstairs and the striking medieval town of Sandwich. To the southwest of Ramsgate is the rich historic city of Canterbury, with its huge cathedral, while to the south is Dover and its unforgettable white chalk cliffs.

Ramsgate is two hours from London by car along the M20 and M2 motorways and within easy reach of the M25 ring road. It receives two direct trains an hour from the capital, one from Victoria Station and the other from Charing Cross Station, while direct National Express coaches leave from Victoria Station every two hours. Gatwick International Airport is the nearest and most convenient for reaching Ramsgate.
