Ramsgate is situated on the southerly aspect of the Isle of Thanet and benefits the countrys only Royal Harbour, its status being granted by King George 1V in 1821. The harbour, home of a vibrant yachting community is overlooked by the Royal Temple Yacht Club; it also features some commercial activity. This was the main port from where the small ships aided the historic evacuation of Dunkirk during the 2nd World War in 1940.
The Town is enjoying something of a renaissance with many Grade 11 listed properties set in elegant Regency Squares or overlooking the sea. These are being renovated to a good standard. Some of the buildings were influenced by the famous architect Augustus Pugin, whose bust stands almost opposite this property on the esplanade. The Granville Theatre and cinema sits alongside, a popular attraction for both residents and visitors.
In recent years the Royal Harbour has seen many restaurants, bars and a cafe culture emerge alongside quirky independent retail outlets utilising the arches on the quayside beneath the Royal Parade.
Historically, many well known figures, including Queen Victoria, Karl Marx and Vincent Van Gogh have had associations with the town and before the war, a forward thinking Mayor arranged for a vast network of tunnels to be hewn out of the rock under the town by local miners. These tunnels proved invaluable during the heavy air raids.
The most recent addition to enhance the fortunes of the town is the regular high speed rail link to London's St Pancras Station which, an hour journey, makes commuting a viable option. A short trip from Ramsgate connects to a dual carriageway and then via the M2 to London.
