Ramsgate, a commercial ferry port, with a car ferry service, and also has a marina.

Still a genteel resort, which became popular after a visit by George IV in 1827.

Georgian buildings in the town, and St Augustin's 1851 Roman Catholic church was designed by Pugin and he is buried here.

Chalk cliffs and sands, beach at Pegwell Bay to the south is worth a try.
