Coupled with a well-priced housing market, Ramsgate is fast becoming popular with commuters, families and a retiring clientele.

Ramsgate, is of course, a popular holiday destination, with tourism playing a large part in the town’s booming economy. Home to a variety of holiday homes and Airbnbs, Ramsgate is also a prime location for weekend boltholes for some of London’s high flyers wanting to escape the city for a couple of nights.

In terms of socialising, Ramsgate Marina is a lively area of town, with a vibrant café culture, trendy wine bars and coffee shops proving the place to be seen. There is a plethora of fantastic restaurants overlooking the water, such as La Magnolia, which is a great spot for Sunday lunch. Or why not head to The Empire Room on Nelson Crescent, often referred to as ‘The Hidden Gem’, for some excellent seafood dishes and fine wine.
