A bustling Royal harbour borders a yacht-packed marina, awash with history and overflowing with continental charm, it’s a must-see historic port

South-facing Ramsgate is proud of its status as England's only Royal Harbour and boasts its own Meridian Line. Five minutes and 41 seconds ahead of GMT, you'll find it in the Maritime Museum, along with artefacts evoking the town's rich heritage of fishing, shipbuilding and shipwrecks. For something a bit different head to The Micro Museum, to find out about the history and ideas that led to the invention of the home computer. Take a tour underground at Ramsgate Tunnels a unique civilian wartime tunnel complex.

Ramsgate's compelling past includes landings by Anglo-Saxons, Romans and Saints - it is also part of the historic Confederation of Cinque Ports. Fine architecture peppers the town - elegant Georgian terraces and impressive Regency villas. Visit The Grange, the first so-called 'modern' house, built by architect Augustus Pugin, who designed the interiors of the House of Parliament. His and his sons' works dot the town - track them down on a self-guided tour.
