Why Move to Ramsgate
As more and more people are priced out of the London property market, many of Kent’s coastal towns which have good transport links, are becoming extremely popular with those looking for an affordable home with regular trains into the capital.
Ramsgate is one of these towns. Sitting off the East Kent coast, it has bags of potential and is home to period properties at attainable prices, many with sea views.
The area also benefits from areas of beauty nearby such as award-winning beaches, Thanet’s beautiful white chalk cliffs and of course everyone knows that Kent is the “Garden of England’ due to its stunning countryside.
With a lively shopping area and regular traditional market, the town is excellent for food and eating, with little cafes, friendly pubs, excellent varied restaurants and a ‘café culture’ at the harbour-side, it is the perfect place for a relaxing time.
Ramsgate’s Royal harbour is a defining characteristic of the town. Its construction began in 1749 and was completed in about 1850. Ramsgate was a chief embarkation point both during the Napoleonic Wars and for the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940.
Traditionally, Ramsgate has been a seaside holiday destination, and this is still very much the case. The main industries still remain, with tourism, hotels, and restaurants, as well as having a busy fishing harbour.
As well as the high-speed rail link which goes direct into St. Pancras in just over an hour and 16 minutes, Ramsgate residents have the added benefit of connections to the continent by sea, rail, and air.
It is no wonder that the town has become one of the hottest places to buy a home in the county.
Schools & Education
There is no point moving to a new home with your family if the education provision is of a poor quality. You will have no such concern if you move to Ramsgate. Across the board the town provides excellent schools from primary through to college.
Highly rated primaries to bear in mind include Chilton Primary School and Newington Community Primary School. Both these schools received excellent results following their most recent Ofsted inspections.
The best secondary school in the town is Clarendon Grammar School which received an Ofsted grading of “good”. Several Independents are available with St Lawrence College, a mainstream, independently funded junior and senior school for children aged between 3-18 being a very popular choice.
Ramsgate’s nearest college is East Kent College, which is situated in the nearby town of Broadstairs.
Things to do in Ramsgate
Living in the town makes it very challenging to be bored. The East Kent coastline offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy a day at the seaside with Dumpton Gap, Pegwell Bay and Sandwich Bay all easily reachable in the car from Ramsgate.
Ramsgate’s south-facing Main Sands beach is one of the best in east Kent. Big, beautiful and stretching all the way to Broadstairs’ Viking Bay, which is a two-mile walk via the ‘Sea it All’ trail.
You can cycle the 32-mile Viking Coastal Trail for an active day out. It is safe and fun and offers beautiful views along the way.
Ramsgate Marina is a great spot to enjoy a spot of lunch at one of its busy waterfront cafés or restaurants. The Royal Harbour Brasserie offers fresh seafood, al fresco dining, and the best views in Ramsgate.
Westwood Cross shopping centre is located just on the outskirts of Ramsgate and features high street retailers like Next, Marks and Spencer, HMV, Debenhams, JD Sports and many more. After all that shopping you can treat yourself to dinner at one of the many restaurants at Westwood Cross.
Bellevue Park is a Natural Heritage Site featuring over 200 species of indigenous trees, a variety of habitats, ponds, birds, insects, frogs, and a sensory play area with a sand pit for kiddies. It is a wonderful retreat for families to spend a few hours.
Having the capital city close by and with quick access to Europe via the Euro Tunnel, the sky is the limit with regard to entertainment in Ramsgate.
Having a diverse and eclectic mix of properties at favourable prices means Ramsgate has both an exciting and busy property market. What is more, Ramsgate has more listed buildings than any other town in Kent.
If your budget stretches to around £800,000, head to East Cliff and West Cliff for Regency town houses and terraces. Explore the town’s harbour conservation area which extends inland from the seafront it encompasses rows of Grade II- listed villas many of them in Regency crescents and garden squares.
Based on 549 properties currently on the market the average cost of a home in the town stands at £219,502. Compared to London’s average of £595,443, it is no surprise that hordes of people are leaving the capital and heading to the coast.
