Ramsgate lies four miles south of Margate in Kent. With a resident population of over 40,000, Ramsgate, now a busy tourist resort, was a busy seafaring town from the eighteenth century. Today it is popular with yachtsmen and sea anglers. The hovercraft terminal one mile to the south has ensured Ramsgateâ€™s continued importance as a cross channel port.
