the West Cliff Concert Hall, once the venue for top artists which included the Rolling Stones who played here in the early 1960’s. More recently it was the home of Ramsgate Motor
Museum, Before the West Cliff Hall was constructed in 1914, the site was an Italian Garden, complete with a bandstand. To make room for the new hall, the Windmill Parade
chalk was literally dug out by hand. If you look towards the cliff edge you’ll see some stone balustrades protruding onto the promenade. These marked the entrance to underground public toilets which still exist below the asphalt.Across the road is the Churchill Tavern. Formerly this was the site of the Isabella or Kent baths which were built in 1817. In 1862 new baths were built in the cliff face across the road and were known as Royal Paragon Baths. All remaining signs of the Paragon Baths disappeared following a cliff collapse...
