Ramsgate began as a farming and fishing hamlet hundreds of years ago. It later became a member of the Confederation of the Cinque Ports, under the ‘Limb’ of Sandwich, Kent.
During the Napoleonic Wars, its close proximity to mainland Europe saw the area become a chief embarkation point. In 1940, it again became strategically important during the Dunkirk evacuation.
This was once the temporary home of world-renowned artist Vincent Van Gogh. He wrote about Ramsgate: “There’s a harbour full of all kinds of ships. Further out one sees the sea in its natural state, and that’s beautiful.” Now you, too, can appreciate the beauty of the surrounding area while enjoying an Afternoon Tea in Ramsgate.
