Beach Retreat, Ramsgate
Ramsgate is fast becoming the destination of people’s choice; it now takes just 1 hour 20 minutes to London. With Manston International Airport close by offering European destinations, the local Ferry and Channel Tunnel to France, the Westwood Cross Shopping Centre nearby and Waitrose only five minutes away, it feels like all the things you could want are on your doorstep.
Imagine coming home every night to what is arguably some of the best most magical coastline in England.
The Royal Harbour was built as a result of a great storm in 1703. In 1821 George IV departed the harbour for Hanover and on his safe return he bestowed the title “Royal” upon the harbour. An obelisk in the pier yard was erected out of granite to commemorate this event. Ramsgate played its part in World War II ; the most famous event being Operation Dynamo – the rescuing of thousands of troops from the beaches at Dunkirk. Some of the heroic ‘little ships’ that made these perilous crossings still exist within the harbour. The town is rich in historical associations. Karl Marx visited in 1870 and Queen Victoria came to Ramsgate many times as a child. Edward Welby Pugin built his home here and Vincent Van Gogh lived in Spencer Square in 1876.
