Ramsgate is famous for its stunning Royal Harbour and the sheer quantity of regency architecture. There is a regular traditional market and the town is excellent for food and eating, with little cafes, frindly pubs, excellent varied restaurants and a 'café culture' at the harbour-side.
There is a blossoming art scene with galleries and new businesses emerging. By the harbour, Victorian arches host ship chandlers, boat sales, intriguing shops and artists' studios. The town was a favourite retreat for AWN Elizabeth Fry, Van Gogh and Coleridge.
