On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Joss Bay to George IV Memorial Park

From Joss Bay this section follows the Thanet Coastal Path or the Viking Coastal Trail around Foreness Point, through the resort of Broadstairs to the outskirts of Ramsgate. Broadstairs, often described as one of the loveliest seaside towns in Britain, is also famous for its connections with Charles Dickens. The Dickens House Museum and Bleak House is right on the coast so pop in for a bit of history. As you make your way up the coast, you will walk by a variety of bays, including Viking Bay which has everything for the traditional seaside holiday, and Stone Bay and Louisa Bay which are great for rockpooling. Dumpton Gap is one of the best low tide walking routes to Ramsgate to view the natural profile of cliff to sea but watch the tides: The idea of walking from one bay to another may be appealing but ensure you don’t get cut off by the tide. High and Low tide information is often written at each beach by the Bay Inspector, or from www.portoframsgate.co.uk . The walk ends at The King George VI Memorial Park which is formed from the clifftop grounds of the demolished East Cliff House.
