Ramsgate may appear at first glance to be a thoroughly modern town but look closer and there is abundant evidence of its Roman origins especially around the magnificent award winning Royal Harbour. Given it’s title in 1821 by George IV, who was more than impressed with the towns hospitality when he sailed from Ramsgate to Hanover and back, it is the only ‘Royal’ harbour in the UK. Today it is Kent’s premier marina with world-class marine services, excellent facilities and berths for 700 craft.

The harbour is also the focal point of the town, hosting a busy calendar of events throughout the year including the spectacular Heineken Race of the Classics and various festivals. Other attractions around the marina include the East Pier, Harbour Lights Café, Maritime Museum, Jacob’s Ladder and the Sailor’s Church. There is also excellent shopping in the town centre and you can virtually eat yourself round the world at the numerous fine restaurants and cafes. As you would expect of a port town of such standing there is also a vibrant pub scene and musical entertainment is never very far away.

The icing on the holiday cake has to be Ramsgate’s unique wide sandy beach with its surrounding natural vegetation that has been landscaped to create a park-like area. The water during the summer months is always warm due to the sub-tropical climate and there are plans to develop a whale watching site opposite.

Ramsgate is never anything less than exciting. There is absolutely always something to do or see. It is also a superb place from which to explore the spectacular French coast only 35 miles away. With its friendly hospitable locals and clean healthy environment it is no wonder this most special of harbour towns was given the royal seal of approval.

Visitor Attractions
Ramsgate Maritime Museum
The museum is housed in the early 19th century Grade II* Clock House at the Royal Harbour, Ramsgate. Four galleries present aspects of the maritime heritage and seafaring life of the Isle of Thanet and East Kent through displays on Royal Harbour history, fishing and shipbuilding, navigation and the lifeboat service. The important marine archaeological collection features artefacts raised from the notorious Goodwin Sands, featuring arms and effects excavated from the late Stuart warship Stirling Castle, sunk in 1703. A fifth display and conservation area - The Gun Room - houses a huge iron gun undergoing preservation, with an accompanying exhibition on Naval Gunnery.

In the John Rennie Room can be seen the Ramsgate Meridian Line while, adjoining the main building, Smeaton's 1791 Dry Dock and historic craft including the 'Dunkirk Little Ship' Sundowner can be seen

The moorings are located just up stream of the Toll bridge in Sandwich town centre. We also have moorings in the Swale and Oare Creek near Faversham.

We have a total of seventy river based moorings of different types, suitable for boats up to 80 feet. Some of the berths dry out at low tides, others stay afloat at all states of the tide.

For sailing yachts and other large boats heading out to sea the bridge can be swung 24hrs a day at one hours notice (pic and contact numbers) and there is no charge for this service. Most smaller river craft can pass under it even at high water.
