If you follow this wall from the amazing historical lift to the historic railway caves at the other end you will notice a few pieces of art by local community members and residence. One lady noticed me admiring a piece and said 'what do you think?' I turned to see she was having a nice cup of tea at the... More

Ramsgate is full of failed attempts to fix failed regeneration projects, both pubic and private. Instead of a wall this should be a huge mirror to reflect back Ramsgate's greatest asset....the beach and the sea.

What is the Great Wall of Ramsgate? Is it bidding for comparison with the one in China or is it more akin to the green line in Cyprus, the Berlin Wall or Belfast's 'Peace Walls'? That is to ask whether it a piece of community art or simply a fig leaf for the property speculators making millions from the luxury... More

Don't dismiss this. I was told the pictures will be back. I hope this is true because it was a wonderful display by local talent. I saw the pictures last year and they are really worth waiting for.

The wall celebrates Ramsgate in all it's multitudes; featuring nautical imagery, mythology, history, and more. I appreciate the fact that all the paintings were created by local artists, exploring various aspects of the town. The paintings represent the work of many individuals, including a wide age-range of artists (some works were even created by children - which is pretty cool).... More

I am not sure what this supposed to be as there is nothing there to see. It actually is a bit of an eyesore and spoils the frontage which is already suffering from closed down buildings. Some money and inspiration is really needed to revitalise this stretch of land.

Sadly, earlier this year the wall of wonderful paintings was vandalised overnight. All us residents were heartbroken but it's some consolation to know that the damaged works are in the process of being restored. Hopefully, more effective security will be in place for the future.

We heard about it and looked for it but apparently it was taken down? Or stolen? Is what locals told us. So we were quite dissapointed. Went away wondering what wonders we had missed. Oh well we can dream of it cant we. Andrew and Helen london.

I really liked this - it was very bright and disguised the building (or lack of) work behind. Sadly this is no longer there due to the mindless vandalism of some idiots.

Can not say this is a sight to see it is a board to hide the waste land behind it to which several pictures have been painted on. Yes some nice pictures but not a place/ thing to visit
