At the edge of Kent, three Georgian and Victorian resorts are clustered together, each with its own distinctive character – Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate. There's a romantic feel to these harbour towns where miles of low chalk cliffs edge the peninsula that you can explore while cycling or hiking on the Viking Coastal Trail. Or walk the coastal path to Broadstairs, or head south on the epic Saxon Shore Way to bird and wildlife-rich Pegwell Bay Country Park. Alternatively, enjoy sitting at one of the waterfront bars or restaurants and enjoy the view.

South-facing Ramsgate is proud of its status as England's only Royal Harbour and boasts its own Meridian Line. Five minutes and 41 seconds ahead of GMT. Visit the Maritime Museum, to find it along with artefacts that tell of the town's rich heritage of fishing, shipbuilding and shipwrecks.

The bustling Royal harbour is a must-see historic port and borders a yacht-packed marina. Here you can hop on a boat trip to spot seals basking on the Goodwin Sands or discover gorgeous beaches and bays. 

For more modern history, visit The Micro Museum, where you can find out more about the thinkers and inventors whose ideas led to the invention of the home computer. Here you can see a collection of vintage computers and videogames and even play some retro games on original consoles.

Take a tour underground at Ramsgate Tunnels a unique civilian wartime tunnel complex that unlocks the story of a hidden underground city.  

Ramsgate's varied history includes landings by Anglo-Saxons, Romans and Saints - it is also part of the historic Confederation of Cinque Ports. This diverse history can be seen in the architecture throughout the town - elegant Georgian terraces and impressive Regency villas. Visit The Grange, the first so-called 'modern' house, built by architect Augustus Pugin, who designed the interiors of the House of Parliament. 

Don't miss the Pugin and St Augustine Visitor Centre and Shrine, celebrating the first Archbishop of Canterbury - St Augustine who landed at Ebbsfleet in 597AD bringing Christianity back to England.
