Welcome to Ramsgate
the UK’s only
Royal Harbour

“Come & visit our beautiful seaside town”


Welcome to Visit Ramsgate

Ramsgate is home to the only Royal Harbour in the UK – given this status by King George IV because he was so impressed with the hospitality he received in our coastal town, and the same is still true today.

With one of the warmest climates in the UK, there’s a distinct continental feel in the town. Visitors can soak up the cosmopolitan atmosphere in one of the many waterfront bars, cafes and restaurants and enjoy the beautiful architecture and our famous Harbour Arches with stunning views across the marina.

There’s so much to enjoy – relax and explore the eclectic mix of artisan and boutique shops or stroll along our award-winning sandy beaches and shoreline. If you are looking for something more adventurous, why not cycle, canoe or even kitesurf around our stunning chalk cliff coastline, famous the world over.

There’s one thing you can always count on when visiting Ramsgate – and that’s a right Royal welcome!

Ramsgate is a great place to visit in any weather!
