Royal Harbour and historic waterfront

The Royal Harbour’s visual appeal and the leisure activities available in it have a key role to play in rebuilding Ramsgate’s reputation as the UK’s essential maritime destination for visitors.

It is part of Ramsgate’s historic waterfront which, with the town beyond, offers a wide range of leisure and retail activities (bars, restaurants, cinema and shops). For the visitor, the area includes award-winning beaches, seal watch trips (in season) and excellent public transport.
