The Port of Ramsgate and Royal Harbour, Ramsgate are harbours situated in Ramsgate, south-east England, serving respectively cross-Channel ferry traffic and smaller working and pleasure craft. They are run on behalf of the public by the local authority, Thanet District Council

The construction of Ramsgate Harbour began in 1749 and was completed in about 1850. The two most influential architects of the Harbour were father and son John Shaw and John Shaw Jr, who designed the clockhouse, the obelisk, the lighthouse and the Jacob’s Ladder steps.The Harbour has the unique distinction of being the only harbour in the United Kingdom awarded the right to call itself a Royal Harbour. This was bestowed by King George IV after he was taken by the hospitality shown by the people of Ramsgate when he used the harbour to depart and return with the Royal Yacht Squadron in 1821.Because of its proximity to mainland Europe, Ramsgate was a chief embarkation point both during the Napoleonic Wars and for the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940. The ferry terminal area is built upon reclaimed land.
The lighthouse situated on the West harbour arm was built in 1842 and is 11m high. It is active and emits a continuous red light
