We followed the beautiful coastal walk from Ramsgate via Broadstairs and onto Margate. This is a walk of just over 10 miles but some of the scenery and the houses to view on the way were spectacular. It did help that the weather was beautiful...More

My husband and I cycled from Margate to Ramsgate. He cycles everyday but I am more of a beginner. We both enjoy cycling this together. A lot of the route is along the coast off road and the roads themselves are fairly quiet. The views...More
