This panorama was taken from the harbour wall next to the Royal Harbour Brasserie.
Ramsgate began as a fishing and farming hamlet. The earliest reference to the town is in the Kent Hundred Rolls of 1274-5 both as Remmesgate (in the local personal name of ‘Christina de Remmesgate’) and Remisgat (with reference to the town). The names Ramisgate and Raunsgate appear in the parish of Saint Laurence records circa 1290. These are all derived from Late Anglo-Saxon ‘Hremmes’ from earlier ‘Hræfnes’ (raven’s) and ‘geat’ (gate), with reference to the gap in the cliffs. In 1357 the area became known as Ramesgate.
Ramsgate has developed a continental café style culture with bars and restaurants on its seafront parade. There is an annual Powerboat Grand Prix event based at the harbour and
Ramsgate carnival is an annual parade that takes place during the summer.

Other events include the annual Addington Street Fair and the French Market.
