Ramsgate is situated on the far coast of Kent. Ramsgate boasts two lovely sandy beaches known as Ramsgate Main Sands, or a smaller beach tucked in the cliffs called The Western Undercliff. The famous Ramsgate Tunnels have recently re-opened which were used to shelter over 60,000 people during World War II. You can now explore the tunnels and experience how people sheltered and lived in the town below the town. Stories of life in the tunnels abound; from the dark days of war when part of the system evolved into an underground city.
The famous Viking Ship Hugin can be seen as you approach the town situated on the cliffs of Pegwell Bay. This ship is a replica of the Viking Ship which sailed from Denmark to Thanet in 1949 to celebrate the 1500th anniversary of the invasion of Britain.
The Monkton Nature reserve has two trails for visitors to explore, one within the chalk quarry, and another along the cliffs to the woodland with scenic views. Monkton is a small village situated within the boundaries of Ramsgate. The famous Royal Marina has an active presence in the town which includes power-boating, sailing, water skiing, surfing, canoeing and diving.
