Happy Valentine's Weekend!
2015 is well underway and I can’t believe it is Valentine’s Day tomorrow! Ramsgate offers so much for those of you who fancy a romantic break away, from our lovely array of independent cafes and bars overlooking our unique Royal Harbour to our fantastic local shops dotted around our town. The newest addition is called Petticoat Lane Emporium (see pic) which opens its doors on 14th February with an injection of passion for the small trader, it will house an eclectic collection of retro and vintage stalls all under the same roof with a cafe and indoor play area for children. The best bit is, that it’s less than a five minute walk from us!
For those of you who like to take in the sea air, walking along our sandy coastline, taking in the chalk cliffs and beautiful bays, is a treat to behold even in February as my photo taken this week shows! If you are up for a three - four hour hike, then catch the tide when it’s out and you can walk around a corner of England from Ramsgate to Margate! Once in Margate you can reward yourself with a free stroll around Turner Contemporary and head over to their wonderful clutch of sole trading shops and treat yourself to the delights they have to offer. After a quick stop at Shell Grotto (a must if you are in Margate), you can head up the hill and catch the Loop bus back (they run every 7-10 minutes) to Ramsgate, have a well deserved long soak in the bath before heading off to one of our superb restaurants that are only a seven minute walk from our B&B.
Thanet is only a 75 minute train ride from London and if you keep an eye out for special offers at South Eastern Trains, you may be able to bag yourselves a bargain before you even arrive!
