What travellers are saying
- Amazing Experience for all, but youth groups are further recommended to try the Overnight Experience!We had an amazing time at the Ramsgate Tunnels. Whilst we were lucky enough to be able to take part in the Overnight Experience as part of a Scout group trip, my family and I had already been there earlier in the year and can absolutely recommend you going there in whatever way works for you. The history of the tunnels is presented to you by incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides (we had Steve and Darren looking after us) and the tour itself is fascinating, not only for the wartime history, but that of railways, Victorian culture and post-war use and eventually even dereliction. Whether you're interested in history or just humanity this is an exceptional experience and entirely unique. The Overnight Experience is an extension of the tour which allows children (mainly) to get a deeper understanding of the conditions the evacuees would have been subjected to. I would recommend this to all groups eligible, however the tour itself is pretty much the same as the normal tour so joining any of the tours available is definitely worth your while in any case. Thanks to every who made our visit so memorable. The kids haven't stopped talking about their visit, and feedback for their parents has been incredibly positive. The Scout group are already planning the next visit.Written 4 December 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Mike and Carol were so welcoming and knowledgeable. What an amazing place. Captivating computing history even for non computing aficionados or the non tech savvy. Really lovely hands on approach- we were actively encouraged to try out all sorts of devices from the past decades. Relaxing atmosphere. From adding machines to the birth of the Tamagotchi craze and the pioneering innovations of the giants and founders of computing...Turing...Babbage..and the groundbreaking, collaborative and competing contributions of Apple, Sinclair, Acorn, IBM, Commodore etc. A testament to the visionaries who paved the way and who we might take for granted. There was also something quite special and sensorially thought provoking about looking at all the physically different materials, different shapes and contours, evoking the passing of time, obsolescence and progress. Thank you very much Carol and Mike- truly amazing what you've out together and kept going.Written 30 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Lovely place. Cafe, second hand book store, creatures in glass cases. One way viewing glass to watch birds. It isn't big but great place to explore nature and the staff are very friendly and helpful. £5 entry for adults or Membership £10 which is worth it. They also allow picnics .Written 29 October 2023
- This church had several displays about the maritime history of Ramsgate. A small building but well worth a quick visit.Written 3 July 2023
- Had the opportunity to view this wonderful gem of a house and the first impressions were that it was so homely and timeless.
What an amazing person Augustus Pugin was; his creativity was fantastic and I am so glad that we were able to walk in his footsteps.Written 22 September 2023
- Lovely clean sandy beach . Lovely sunny day . Lots of families have a typical day on the beach - great to see. We walked along the beach back to Dumpton gap . Please note that if the tide is in - you will need to take the steps up to the cliff top. Lovely views & worth it . Not easy steps though. Definitely worth another visit . I think i would like to visit in the winter too .Written 23 August 2023
- A lovely peaceful experience. Very historical place.
Visitors can buy in the small shop, visit a tea room and attend services.
There is a guided tour in the afternoon.Written 25 September 2023
- We found this little gem by chance , it is a wonderful church but made so much more interesting by the lovely Hunter who told us the history. He made it come alive and made it a lovely visit. We went into Ramsgate and on our return wanted to pop in and thank Hunter we bought him a cake as a thank you but unfortunately it was closed so had to eat it ourselves. Maybe next time .Written 13 May 2022
- This is a good place where you can admire work by a range of local artists and also make a purchase. There are some excellent affordable greetings cards which I would recommend in place of the mass-produced items on sale at WH Smiths or other such outlets.Written 29 March 2022
- Really pleasant park to walk through on a summers day. Loved looking at the old Victorian Greenhouse. Well maintained grass and flower beds. Fantastic to see the beautiful Parakeet's .Written 22 September 2022
- Walked from Ramsgate to the Pegwell Bay nature reserve (and back). Bascially followed the coast path. Glorious day. Had a rest at the Viking Cafe at Cliff End. It's a fairly easy walk - no major hills. Very peaceful. Fresh air. Bird song. About 5 miles there, 5 miles back.Written 18 May 2022
- I love this park. Perfect for families chilling at the cafe- which has fab tasty fresh food, and a lovely little mini train area.Written 2 October 2023
- Love this place. It is great fun.
We stumbled upon it a few years ago when visiting the other best Museum in Ramsgate which is next door (The Micro Museum) and got a combined ticket. It was a bizarre and joyful surprise and left us a bit gobsmacked to be honest. Since then we visit whenever we can. Fans of Doc in Back To The Future will especially love it!Written 16 September 2023
- I had a few hours free in Ramsgate so I decided to visit the museum. It was very easy to reach, in the city centre next to the beach and the harbour. It was lovely, with very interesting facts and things to see. There were photos, painting and stories of people who had crazy adventures in the sea, both local and around the world (like the woman light keeper in St. Francisco bay who employed a household hammer and pounded the giant bell of the fog signal when it broke, doing it manually for over 20 hours without stopping, to prevent a possible shipwreck) and Mr Lightholler, who squeezed 130 wounded soldiers in his small ship instead of the usual 20 or 30 people he could carry and brought them to safety in Ramsgate from Dunkirk evacuation during WW2. The man had surely various crazy experiences, including being one of the survivors of the Titanic tragedy!
There are also items found in shipwrecks dating centuries ago, from shoes to coins to sword hilts, broaches, etc.
There was also a 15 minutes black and white old documentary about the Dunkirk evacuation, I tried watching it but I lasted only a couple of minutes: English is not my first language and the guy talking in front of the camera had a really strong American accent and I couldn't understand one word of what he was saying... Anyway no worries if you have my same problem: you can enjoy the rest of the museum thoroughly without watching the movie.
The museum is quite small but I ended up spending there one hour without even realising it.
The lady and gentleman at the reception were very nice and friendly.
The entrance fee is £2.50 and it is very well worth it.
Please note there is no toilet inside the museum so you will need to use the public toilets nearby (as I did)Written 24 July 2018
