Winter seaside walk

Book 3 Walk 101 Ramsgate to Margate via Broadstairs

Length 15.7km (9.8m); toughness 2/10.

Trains: Recommend you use HS1 trains today.

09.37 London St Pancras International (Stratford International 09.43) arrives Ashford International 10.14 then have a quick coffee before catching the 10.42 from Ashford to Ramsgate 11.13.

Return trains from Margate back to London St Pancras International are at xx:53.

This is a favourite summer swimming walk but makes a highly evocative and atmospheric winter outing with strong associations with Charles Dickens. (Your recommended lunch-time pub is the Charles Dickens in Broadstairs!)

You can shorten the walk by finishing in Broadstairs.
