Barking Mad

A shout out to all of you who can’t bear leaving their furry companions behind when going away for a day trip, short break or longer!

The Ramsgate coastline is the perfect playground for your four-legged friends. With miles of walking trails to explore, the sea for splashing in, and plenty of delicious things to sniff, you and your pooch will be living the dream.

Before you leave home, be sure to book a dog-friendly hotel, B&B or campsite and download some of our dog-friendly walking trails taking in sandy beaches, bays and cliff top paths. Check out our growing number of dog-friendly pubs, restaurants, cafes, art galleries and attractions. And if your dog loves the sea, why not set sail on a boat trip to find your sea-faring legs together!

Dog with ball on beach

You and your dog will absolutely love exploring the coastline together between Ramsgate and Broadstairs, walking along deserted sandy beaches beneath a backdrop of white chalk cliffs for miles and miles. Your dog could even join you geocaching to dig up hidden treasure (bones!) or on a Costumed Walk to partake in Ramsgate’s thespian vibe!  

Sniff out new local flavours at our dog-friendly cafés and restaurants. Discover public art and coastal sounds on a walk around the Royal Harbour. And end the day with a pint of craft beer from one of our many dog-friendly local pubs and taverns.  

In dog-friendly Ramsgate, expect to find welcome signs, bowls of fresh water and plenty of ear-scratches for your visiting pup. Check out our growing number of dog-friendly businesses below to plan your trip and look out for our Dog-Friendly welcome sign in their windows.

“Bone” voyage!
