England Coast Path - Ramsgate To Camber

E Sussex, Kent

109 km / 68 miles
A 68-mile section of the England Coast Path between Ramsgate and Camber opened for public use in July 2016. Following the Kent coast it visits Deal, Dover, Folkestone, Hythe, New Romney and Dymchurch and heads around the Dungeness peninsula to reach Camber in East Sussex. This is an historic and scenic coast and home to the famous 'White Cliffs, and also to the 'Cinque Ports' that will be the theme of the 2018 LDWA Hundred being organised by Kent LDWA group. Sandwich, Dover, Hythe and New Romney are among the five Head Ports with the fifth Hastings. The quiet charm of some of the Cinque Port towns now belies their important and sometimes violent role in the development of the nationís seafaring and naval traditions. Information and a pdf leaflet on the Cinque Ports and their Confereration is online on their link below.

While much of this part of the England Coast Path is flat there are some more strenuous ascents and descents. In some places the Coast Path is coincident with the North Downs Way National Trail. The firing ranges near Lydd are avoided by going inland. Natural England defined this part of the England Coast Path in two sections: Camber to Folkestone and Folkestone to Ramsgate (sections 23 and 24 on their progress maps).
