Walk Description:

Our walk starts in Ramsgate and goes along the coast through Broadstairs to Margate.  It is so much more than pasing through these three popular resorts.  Superb harbours, marinas and sandy bays are interspersed with a castle, gardens, magnificent houses and follies.  All this against a backdrop of towering cliffs with stacks and arches and, the star of the show  - the sea which passes from Channel to North Sea. Come and enjoy the landscape that inspired one of Britain's greatest painters, J W M Turner.

Our route goes along roads, promenade and clifftops and is mainly level with a few small climbs.

Key sights

Ramsgate marina Dumpton Bay Broadstairs - Dickens House Kingsgate Castle Palm Bay Margate - the Turner Contemporary art gallery

Our longer Explorer WALX are open to all, exploring beautiful areas in and around London. Routes are planned with breaks and the opportunity for refreshments but this isn't just a ramble; we'll encourage the good posture and motivation to push yourself as we do in all our WALX.

If you'd like to benefit from using Nordic walking poles, we advise you attend a Learn to Nordic WALX workshop. Walkers without poles or with trekking poles are very welcome.

Monthly Payment clients £10; Pre-paid Credit clients £16 - price adjusted at payment.

 

Time: Meet outside Ramsgate Station ready to start at 10.30 am.
