Ramsgate

The Royal Harbour

Ramsgate is a town of 40,000 people in Thanet and overlooks the Channel. It is only 1 hour 15 minutes by fast train to London. It has a beautiful Georgian Harbour, glorious sandy beaches, a fishing fleet, a vibrant café culture, artists a plenty and an abundance of Grade 2 listed Regency buildings including the first large scale housing project designed and built by a woman in 1805.

Unlike neighbouring Margate and Broadstairs, it benefits from being south facing.

It has always been a working town as well as a popular resort. In the 1970s and 80s, it suffered not only from the collapse of the British seaside holiday market but also the closure of the East Kent mines.

In 2010, the ONS classified Ramsgate as more deprived than nearby Margate but it is Margate which has been the focus of regeneration efforts in East Kent. As a result, Ramsgate has suffered badly from a lack of investment.
