This is a lovely little church on the harbour front. Upstairs apprentice fisherlads (smack boys) were given a home and occasional shipwrecked sailors lodged there too.
The inside of the church itself is charming, with lovely models of ships and boats and a truly peaceful atmosphere. Heartily recommended as a lovely place to get a sense of old Ramsgate.

If, like myself, you are interested in the history of the Second World War, you must visit the Sailors Church. During the 1940 Dunkirk evacuations, this church was used as a hospital/first aid/food distrubution centre for the British (and other nationalities) troops who returned to Britain through Ramsgate in a flotilla of small boats - many of these boats from Ramsgate itself. It may seem a little uninteresting at first sight, but just go there, sit down and feel the history - It's well worth a visit.

This lovely old church has a very interesting history that two lovely people from the church shared with us. There is a very peaceful feeling inside and we were made welcome and felt we could stay as long as we needed to.

Well worth a visit as I believe it's open most days and provides a number of artifacts related to sailing and the early use of the harbour as well as a spiritual dimension. Things are a little jaded and there's very little interactive material but if you like history in the raw then it's well worth taking time out to visit.
