The Ramsgate to Whitstable stretch of the King Charles III England Coast Path has been officially opened.

The route starts in the seaside town of Ramsgate, passes through King George VI Memorial Park on its way to Broadstairs, Kinsgate, Margate, Westgate, Birchington, Herne Bay, Tankerton, to eventually arrive at Whitstable. It includes dramatic chalk cliffs, sandy beaches, and popular seaside resorts. 

Clair Bell, Kent County Council cabinet member for community and regulatory services, said: “This section of the coast offers some of Kent’s finest beaches and heritage including Botany Bay, the remains of St Mary’s Church at Reculver, the Royal Port of Ramsgate and the Turner Contemporary gallery at Margate.  

“There are a host of opportunities and interesting diversions for residents and visitors alike. The commencement of access rights offers the chance to explore new areas of the coast, boosts the local economy and contributes to the health and wellbeing of residents.”
