Home to Kent’s premier Royal Harbour Marina, seaside Ramsgate on the Kent Thanet Coast also has a beautiful award-winning golden sandy beach and family seaside attractions including a boating pool and leisure park. The harbour at Ramsgate is a picture-postcard jewel flanked by the imposing Clockhouse building designed by the genius engineer John Smeaton of Eddystone Lighthouse fame, a building once famously the centre of the Ramsgate Meridian which was 5 minutes and 41 seconds ahead of Greenwich Meantime!
Royal Harbour Marina is a real Kent centre for world class mooring facilities and annual international watersports competitions and is the main hub for Ramsgate’s annual Regatta week in August. From premier yacht clubs like the Royal Temple Yacht Club to European Water Ski championships, you’ll find them here in Ramsgate Marina overlooked by the resort’s famous seafront cliffs.
