 Ramsgate is a coastal town situated in that part of East Kent known as the Isle of Thanet.

The construction of its harbour began in 1749, and it became an important embarkation point and busy garrison town during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars between 1792 and 1815. In the course of the 19th century it also became an extremely popular seaside resort.
