Viking Coastal Trail


The Viking Coastal Trail is an 32-mile walk around the coast of the Isle of Thanet and you can either do the whole lots in a couple of days ot just do the eight mile stretch that links the towns of Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Margate. It's a flattish stroll along sandy beaches and grassy cliffs in between three distinct towns – the old town and harbour of Ramsgate, Broadstairs, with its lovely beaches and good pubs and restaurants, and Margate with its sweeping harbour and art gallery. Why is it called the Viking Coastal Trail? Because Thanet was where the Vikings first landed in Kent –  tenuous connection perhaps, but indicative of the deep historical roots of the area and its resorts.
