Start time: 11:00
Moderate 8 miles / 12.9 km
Travel: Take the 09:25 from St Pancras, arrives Margate at 10:59. Buy a return to Ramsgate. Trains back from Ramsgate at 20 minutes past hour.
We will be walking along the coastline from Margate to Ramsgate making a lunch stop in Broadstairs. We will walk as much as possible on the beach but at times on the higher coastal path, there should be low tide at this time making it possible to walk on the sand.
There is a nice park overlooking the sea at Broadstairs where we will stop, please bring a packed lunch but depending on numbers, it might be possible to have lunch in the pub. Weather permitting and for those feeling keen you might be able to have a quick dip in the sea at Viking Bay at Broadstairs also (this is safe for swimming). There is a very nice Weatherspoons at the end of the walk in Ramsgate, it has a large and attractive art deco sunterrace, so a possible refreshment stop.
