Rail arrived in Ramsgate in 1846, and trains travelling into the station drift along a small stretch of glittering Kentish coastline, giving visitors a clue to the historic importance of this stunning Royal Harbour town. The current station, with its high ceilings and an airy interior, was built in the 1920s and is Grade II listed. The town centre is 10 minutes' walk to the south, but buses operate from the station forecourt to Leopold Street and the harbour every eight minutes. When you reach its centre, you'll find Ramsgate oozes cosmopolitan appeal. Cafes and bars dot the waterfront, yachts bob in the marina, and there's a bustling harbour to stroll around too. Records of maritime activity in Ramsgate go back to Anglo-Saxon times, so a visit to the Maritime Museum is a must; and if there's time, hop on a boat over to Goodwin Sands for a spot of seal watching.
