Ramsgate Maritime Museum focuses strongly on Ramsgate and its immediate environs, with a brief introduction to the rest of the region’s maritime past. The museum, set in the heart of the country’s only Royal Harbour, is an exhibit in its own right, being the product of some of the most eminent civil engineers and architects of the early 19th century. It is the site of the unique Ramsgate Meridian – from which Ramsgate’s own particular Mean Time – 5 mins 41 secs ahead of Greenwich – was calculated!
