The excursion includes the Kew Explorer land train, which will give us a guided tour around the Gardens to hear about Kew’s ora and fauna, historic buildings and vital conservation works. You can then hop on and off the land train to visit the various glasshouses and Gardens.

The collection of living plants is the largest and most diverse in the world. There are several cafés and restaurants or if you prefer to take a picnic you may eat this in the gardens. Also included in the price is entry to 17th century Kew Palace, George III’s summer residence built in the Dutch style with gables.

Cost £38 per person.

The Ramsgate Society shop will re-open in the Clock house of the Maritime Museum on Tuesday October 9th. We still have some spaces on our rota of helpers. If you could offer a couple of hours of time there are spaces on Tuesday afternoon from 1.00pm- 4pm, Friday afternoon from 1.00pm - 4.00pm and Saturday from 1.00 - 4.00pm.

Although it is likely to be quiet we need 2 volunteers at all times. We have Ramsgate Society items for sale and also are willing to talk to visitors about Ramsgate as a town and listen to any concerns. The membership Secretary (Janet Reid) and myself are always available to lock up at the end of the day and support in anyway we can.
