Ramsgate's World Class Marina & Harbour

Ramsgate's World Class Marina & Harbour

Kent's Thanet coast and countryside is in the far North East of the region, with the coastline incorporating the classic English seaside resorts of Margate,  Broadstairs and Ramsgate, home to a world class marina. The best of Kent's award-winning beaches are here around the Thanet Coast.

Head off on the Charles Dickens Trail in beautiful Broadstairs, a seaside jewel beloved by Dickens who based the character of Betsey Trotwood in 'Great Expectations' on Mary Pearson Strong whom he visited in the house on the cliff top in Broadstairs, today the not to be missed Dickens House Museum.
