Visit Ramsgate leaflet trail, based on extracts from letters Vincent van Gogh sent to his brother, Theo in 1876 during his short stay in Ramsgate. The Trail is called Following in the Footsteps of Vincent van Gogh. When he stayed in Ramsgate, he took no respite from his preferred method of communication, writing mainly to his brother but also to his parents and other relatives, often ‘copying and pasting’ information but always tailoring them to the recipient. The trail is around 1.6 miles long, and you can download it from our website link. The leaflet features extracts of the letters he wrote about the town, including the Royal Harbour.
