Maintain your New Year’s Resolutions to get out more and be more active with this linear coastal walk around the Isle of Thanet.

Our route will follow the Thanet Coastal Path alongside the most easterly part of Kent, from Margate to Broadstairs, passing Botany Bay, Kingsgate Bay, and finally onto Ramsgate. In contrast to the walk along the White Cliffs of Dover, extensive stretches of this walk will be along the beach, tide permitting. There is a highly favourable low tide prediction for this particular Saturday, the best in many months. 

Lunch will be on Broadstairs Pier where there is some shelter should the weather be less than perfect.

On arrival in Ramsgate you have a choice of catching the train home, or rewarding yourself with a pint of beer, and an optional bag of chips, in the company of your fellow walkers. 

The path is largely paved, or comprised of concrete, and for this reason you may find it more comfortable to wear footwear with some cushioning such as a pair of trainers. One of the benefits of walking on the prom or beach is that the route will be almost entirely mud free.
