Popular BBC comedy sitcom Not Going Out is about Lee who has been drifting through life and his landlady Lucy who happens to be the woman of his dreams.
The Not Going Out production visited Port of Ramsgate to film part of the last episode of the sixth series, entitled ‘Boat’. Lee’s dad, Frank (Bobby Ball) has bought a boat and invites Lee and his friends down for the weekend. When they arrive at Port of Ramsgate, which is doubling for Eastbourne, the boat is not what everyone expected!
Port of Ramsgate is managed by Thanet District Council and is the only Royal Harbour in the country. Ramsgate itself is a beautiful coastal town which boasts visually stunning Victorian architecture, a beach, amusements, arcades, shops, eateries and a theatre. The area has welcomed productions such as True Love (2012).
