Welcome to Ramsgate Garden Centre, proud to be a part of the British Garden Centres family. Charles, Robert, Phillippa and the team look forward to seeing you soon.
A little bit of Ramsgate History...
About 30 years ago, the garden centre site used to be a greyhound track and market. Our warehouse still to this day houses the cages that the greyhounds would wait in before the races.
The garden centre is now known to be built on top of an old underground railway that took trains down to the main beach in Ramsgate, until they collapsed about 10 years ago (a lorry fell through our car park!). There are still existing tunnels that are currently being excavated to find out how far they extend and very recently, a small section of the wartime tunnels has been opened to the public for tours.
When you visit be sure to spot the large anchor, buoy and a coastal beacon in our car park! Our garden centre was designed to look like a ship, referencing our location near the Royal Port of Ramsgate.
Following the recent government announcement, our soft play areas will open shortly. Please see the individual garden centres Facebook pages for updates.
Ramsgate Garden Centre is home to The Gardener's Retreat Restaurant. Serving great food all day, join us for breakfast or enjoy a delicious lunch from our fantastic menu or choose something from our specials board. Book an afternoon tea with and sit and relax enjoy a great selection of sweet and savoury treats. We serve Stokes of Lincoln Coffee. We look forward to serving you.

Following the government’s recent guidelines we are sad to announce that we are having to temporarily close the play area, effective immediately.
