12 ALBION HOUSE RAMSGATE

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Play -

WHAT MAKES IT SO SPE­CIAL? Perched on the East Cliff over­look­ing Ramsgate’s har­bour, this ren­o­vated Ge­or­gian build­ing is a 10-minute drive from Ramsgate train sta­tion and the slightly buzzier neigh­bour­ing coastal town of Broad­stairs. The rooms are mod­ern-meets-an­tique, with big squishy beds, mar­bled bath­rooms and un­in­ter­rupted views of the English Chan­nel. Make sure you re­serve a ta­ble at Town­leys, its restau­rant (we were still day­dream­ing about the food days later). Try the fish or the pork belly with smoked mash.

WHO GOES? Fam­i­lies, cou­ples, maybe even the odd well-be­haved hen party. There’s a pop­u­lar cy­cle route called the Vik­ing Coastal Trail, which will ap­peal to ac­tive types. It’s cer­tainly not the UK’s an­swer to Ibiza, so be pre­pared for plenty of down time and Mr Whippy by day, then quiet drinks and live mu­sic with the lo­cals by night. IT WOULD BE A CRIME NOT TO…

Eat fish and chips on the beach and clear out your wal­let on the ar­cade slot ma­chines. What is a trip to the Bri­tish sea­side with­out these things?
