Meet 8.30 Canterbury Bus Station for the 8.40 No8 bus to Thanet (stand C2)
This is the last opportunity to travel free on the bus before 9.30am. The walk is about 13 miles on flat and easy surface, with the option of going back by train or bus from Broadstairs if you want a shorter walk.
We will get off at Westgate and walk along the coast through Margate, Cliftonville, Broadstairs to Ramsgate. Bring a packed lunch, although there is also the option of lunch at the huge Ramsgate Wetherspoons based by the beach in the Royal Victoria Pavilion.
There is the option of getting the train to Canterbury West from Ramsgate (under 30 minutes) or getting two buses back, via Margate, which takes about 1.5 hours. The first has the advantage of speed, but has the disadvantage that we have to walk to Ramsgate station and from Canterbury West station at the other end.
