  • Ramsgate

    Lively and vibrant, Ramsgate has a veritable feast of attractions for residents and visitors alike. The stunning Royal Harbour, with its cosmopolitan feel, was awarded its title in 1820 when King George IV embarked with the Royal Squadron at Ramsgate on his way to Hanover. In appreciation of the hospitality given to him on his return he decreed that Ramsgate Harbour should have the right to add 'Royal' to its name in statute, which is unique in mainland Britain.
  • Margate

    Margate was one of England's earliest coastal resorts, developed after 1753 when Benjamin Beale, a Margate Quaker, invented the bathing machine. The upper classes came to Margate to partake of the new and fashionable craze for sea bathing, making use of Beale's invention - a kind of wagon in which the bather was towed into the sea.
    The first development, around Cecil Square in 1769, was inland from the sea, behind the old fishing village, but soon London visitors were heading for Margate in their droves, first down the Thames and by sea and later by train, and building moved seawards as the 19th century progressed.
  • Broadstairs

    Broadstairs is a coastal town on the Isle of Thanet. About 80 miles (130 km) south-east of London. It is part of the civil parish of Broadstairs and St Peter's, which includes St. Peter's. Situated between Margate and Ramsgate, Broadstairs is one of Thanet's seaside resorts, known as the "Jewel in Thanet's crown". The town's crest motto is Stella Maris ("Star of the Sea"). The name derives from a former flight of steps in the chalk cliff, which led from the sands up to the 11th-century shrine of St Mary on the cliff's summit.
    The town spreads from Haine Road in the west to Kingsgate in the north (named after the landing of King Charles II in 1683) and to Dumpton in the south (named after the yeoman Dudeman who farmed there in the 13th century). The hamlet of Reading (formerly Reden or Redyng) Street was established by Flemish refugees in the 17th century.
  • Crampton Tower Museum

    The Crampton Tower Museum is a fascinating small museum is partly housed in a flint tower adjacent to the Broadstairs Railway Station. The tower formed part of the first Broadstairs public water supply and was put in repair by Thanet District Council.
  • Kingsgate Castle

    Kingsgate Castle on the cliffs above Kingsgate Bay, Broadstairs, Kent was built for Lord Holland (Henry Fox, 1st Baron Holland) in the 1760s. The name Kingsgate is related to an incidental landing of Charles II on 30 June 1683 ("gate" referring to a cliff-gap) though other English monarchs have also used this cove, such as George II in 1748. The building was later the residence of John Lubbock, 1st Baron Avebury. The building has now been converted into 31 flats.
