The Royal Harbour of Ramsgate
Ramsgate is a typical English seaside town plus lots of added attractions. It has a working harbour and it’s one of my favourite places to sit and have a cup of good coffee and watch the boats coming in and going out with the ever changing sky.

Where to eat & drink?
Ramsgate has really good places to eat out and the best Indian restaurant, Kumar’s and the best fish & chips, Peter’s Factory. There are some great pubs – our favourite is Queen Charlotte’s, with local beers. If you like chocolate the Harbour Chocolate Lounge is a couple of minutes walk away and is a great place to sit and look at the harbour.
A really small old cinema in Broadstairs and a much smaller theatre in Margate called Tom Thumb! Lots of pubs with jazz and country style music.The Ramsgate Music Hall.
We are 75 minutes away from Central London by train.
