Come to Ramsgate and discover the country’s only Royal harbour, a sparkling marina, the country’s first modern house, and coastal activities to boost your wellbeing all year round.

Immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan pizzazz of the harbour front dotted with cafés, bars, restaurants and pubs – people-watching and dreaming about which yacht you might like! Take a boat trip around the harbour (find out which king gave it ‘Royal’ status and why) and venture out to the sandbanks and do some seal spotting. 

Back on dry land explore the town’s fine Georgian and Regency architecture. You can follow a (free) self-guided tour in the steps of world-renowned Victorian leader of the Gothic Revival, Augustus Pugin (also known for the interiors of the Houses of Parliament). The family home he built here, The Grange , is deemed the country’s first ‘modern house’ and at the church he designed next door you’ll find the Shrine of St Augustine & The National Pugin Centre – unravel the fascinating stories of both saint and architect.

Further intrigues abound: what brought Van Gogh to teach in Ramsgate? Why did 1,000 people take up residence in Ramsgate Tunnels – don a hard hat and explore their subterranean world. Take a trip through computing history and the digital age at The Micro Museum. Escape the everyday with Active Ramsgate, full of ideas for walks, cycle routes, canoe trails, bird watching and more. Exploring the green network of outdoor adventure (planet-friendly touring that is also light on your pocket!) is not just for summer, but all year round, the crispy autumn and winter sea air here is so energising! 

Maybe walk or cycle sections of the stunning 32-mile Viking Coastal Trail. Or enhance your outdoor experiences on a Nordic walking break, or join Col’s Kent Bike Tours. Tune into wildlife at Monkton Nature Reserve. Visit the nearby Spitfire & Hurricane Memorial Museum and RAF Manston History Museum. Make a date for Ramsgate Week sailing regatta, sound and film festivals, and many more exciting events. For further information on Ramsgate click here
