Sands offers a great experience for boat owners.

some of the best in the area. Ramsgate Main Sands, situated a stone’s

You can play tennis free of charge at the three courts on Spencer Sq –

An excellent way of discovering Ramsgate’s attractions – and those
nearby – is to take the Viking Coastal Trail. The 27-mile long trail,
divided into six themed routes, takes in some of Thanet’s many places
of interest, so put on your walking boots or jump on a bike, and set off
for a day of exploring.
Along the way you can see the Viking ship Hugin which commemorates
the Viking landings here in AD449. Also, you could visit the Minster
Abbey, build in 1027 and reckoned to be the oldest inhabited property
in the land.
And the beautiful, bright-white North Foreland Lighthouse is a sight to
behold. It was also the last manually operated lighthouse in the
country, finally converting to automatic operation in 1998.
The country’s only royal harbour

The Royal title was bestowed upon the Harbour by King George IV in
1821. Surrounded by stunning Georgian and Victorian architecture, the
Harbour front is a hive of activity.

Ramsgate Maritime Museum, or take a trip out to Goodwin Sands or
the Stour Estuary and visit the resident seals. And if there is anything
else you wish to know about the town you’ll find the Ramsgate
Tourism Office here too.
After all this activity, sit back and embrace Ramsgate’s cosmopolitan
café culture. Relax in one of the sea-facing cafés or restaurants,
watching the boats come and go in the marina and admiring the skies
that J.M.W Turner described as the loveliest in all of Europe.
Come and visit our vibrant, charming town. Whether you are looking to
discover fascinating places, or simply wish to relax, a Ramsgate holiday
will have the answer.
