Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach RAMSGATE

RAMSGATE

Set on the south coast of Kent, the lovely English seaside town of Ramsgate is the third and last of the great Georgian and Victorian resorts (with Margate and Broadstairs making up the other two). The town has everything you could expect: historic architecture, pretty streets adorned with bunting, more tea shops and pubs than you could imagine, a sandy beach, and—thanks to George IV—the only royal harbour in the UK. Ramsgate’s history goes back over many centuries. View more

Early history saw the arrival of the Belgic peoples as early as 100 years BC, followed by the Romans in 55BC and 54BC (the huge gateway fortress known as “Gateway to Britannia” in the nearby town of Richborough is testament to Roman presence). St. Augustine arrived next by papal request (in 597AD), a stone cross marking the spot where he landed. Fast forward the 17th century and the glorious Georgian era, which saw an influx of wealthy holidaymakers flock to Ramsgate’s golden sands. If interested in regency era architecture, make a beeline for the houses that line Nelson Crescent and Wellington Crescent. Today, Ramsgate is a busy, bustling town with, astonishingly, its own median line – this means that you are always five minutes and 41 seconds ahead of GMT here. While there are countless things to do – walk along the white cliffs of Dover 20 miles away or catch up on British maritime and wartime history in Maritime Museum and Ramsgate Tunnels, there is no better way to while away the time in Ramsgate than just by strolling the streets.
