Ramsgate Beach

About

Ramsgate is home to the only ‘Royal’ Harbour in the country, a sparkling marina, award-winning sandy beach, history and heritage and clifftops that beg to be rambled.

There are a wealth of cafes, bars, restaurants and pubs scattered along the waterfront, offering a cosmopolitan pizzazz, where you can happily pass the time people watching or dreaming about which yacht you would like – if only! Learn more about the town’s maritime heritage at Ramsgate Maritime Museum.

The town is rich in fine buildings. Here you’ll find The Grange; the home built and lived in by architect Augustus Pugin, who also designed the interiors of the Houses of Parliament. Next door at the church you will find the Pugin and St Augustine Visitor Centre and Shrine.

Head to one of the towns hidden treasures, Ramsgate Tunnels, where you’ll don a hard hat and grab a torch to descend deep into a subterranean network that was a permanent home to 1000 people in WWII.

If you are feeling adventurous, take a boat trip around the harbour or venture further afield and explore the sandbanks and seal colonies that sit just off our coastline.

A short stroll into the town centre reveals a mix of chain and individual shops. If you visit on a Friday or Saturday you will be greeted by the cries of the market stallholders as they vie with each other to sell their wares.

The nearby Spitfire & Hurricane Museum houses splendid examples of two iconic British fighter aircraft that served during the Second World War.
