We went on a heritage open day. A quirky little museum. Looking at the waves breaking on the Goodwin Sands was amazing.

Run by volunteers, who are only too willing to answer your questions. The tower is quite a climb, but well worth it for the views. Not open all the time, but does have info posted outside for opening times etc.

We had a really interesting trip to the tower, the staff were friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable... We would definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area.

A great location on the edge of the beach and interesting exhibits to do with time and signalling. Great views from the top floor with telescopes provided up to 60x. Can see individual buildings in Ramsgate easily and it feels like you could read a paper held up by someone on the pier. Lots of original instruments give it a very steampunk feel.
