My son loved this place. We went three times to look at the model boats and he donated his pocket money.

I'd been in this church a few years ago and it still delights. You can imagine the respite and peace this little church gave to the sailors and apprentices (smack boys) in the past and no doubt now as well. Just spent a few minutes in here soaking up the history of this little gem.

Did not go inside but worth a look from the outside. It looked very small but was attractive. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Ramsgate.
