“Wonderful Collection of Local Artists”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

This is a fantastic attraction highlighting the local talent and sights of Ramsgate. There are some amazingly talented artists in this town! It makes for a great stroll along the beach, what with the great ocean view on one side and this eclectic collection of local art on the other. Would highly recommend!

“Paintings Galore!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Well done you artists, shows what hidden talent lurks in Thanet. Some work needs a little thought to understand, but what else could they do to hide that ugly building site ?
Hope it is a permanent fixture, will it survive the bad weather in years to come!

“I love it and a great way to display artists work. Check it out.”
Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

I should have written this review ages ago especially as I see this wall a lot.
No one likes to see a boarded up building sight especially next to the beach so whoever decided to liven it up with art, good thinking.
The art varies immensely in styles and in subject matter but the one thing they have in common is the words 'local scenes'.
Another great thing is that graffiti artists have respected other artists work and left them alone.
So take a trip to Ramsgate and wander along the length of the great wall, followed by stroll along the harbour and finish off with a drink in one of the cafe/bars.

especially as a "newbie" (I live in Ramsgate a bit over an year now) it is so lovely to walk along the beach and have look at the great wall of ramsgate, see the work of all the local artist.
