You may have caught the recent programme – Top 100 Walks in Britain – we certainly did! We knew it was coming – the team behind the filming got in touch and wanted to visit – Julia Bradbury wanted to walk the walk herself and meet some of the locals who could tell the viewers about the area.
And the walk? Heading right around the corner of England, starting in Ramsgate Harbour and ending in Margate. One of our favourite Active Ramsgate Walks, our Beach Roamer Walk, you can download the map here to follow the route.
We’re delighted that it managed to sneak into the top 100 – right in at number 100. Of course, we think that it should be at number 1 – but have to concede that we are a little bit biased!
But what’s not there to love about this walk?
Taking in no less than nine bays, there aren’t many that can give you that! Stunning cliffs and wonderful wild flowers as well as the golden, sandy beaches, it truly is one of the best walks in Kent.
We loved hosting Julia – you may have seen Rebekah Smith, Ramsgate Town Promoter and Active Ramsgate team member, was featured in the film and she said that Julia was delightful to meet and was blown away by the scenery.
So, if you want to walk the best of the best in the UK, then you don’t have to go very far. Just one other in Kent, and the only one in Thanet to feature, we are truly blessed to have this walk on our doorstep.
But don’t take our word for it (well, and Julia’s!) but also Active Ramsgate ambassador Lizzy Yarnold – we’re sure, like us, you’ve been cheering Lizzy on – she’s been doing fantastically well in PyeongChang, but of course, does like her home county of Kent.
To finish this article, and to persuade you to walk the 100th best walk in the UK, we’ll leave it to Lizzy Yarnold to say:“Getting out in the fresh air with friends and family and making the most of the beautiful coastline around Ramsgate, what could be better?”
The walk via King George VI Park is also wonderful.
