Augustus Pugin came to Ramsgate in 1843, in search of 'the delight of the sea with catholic architecture & a Library.' Here he built St Augustine’s Grange, to live out his ideal of life in the Middle Ages in a family home nestling in the shadow of a benevolent monastery next door, completed by his son Edward and still thriving today.

The Grange reflects Pugin’s belief in the Gothic style as the only true Christian architecture (he was a fervent convert to Catholicism).

Here he was able to build according to his own true principles, imposing ‘No features …

which are not necessary for convenience, construction or propriety.’ Built of yellow stock brick and surrounded by walls of knapped flint, The Grange was not an inherently extravagant house despite the richness of its interiors.

Ramsgate is a thriving town with growing arts and local history activity and plenty of jaunty seaside architecture, much of it dating from the days when the harbour formed a busy embarkation point to defend the country against Napoleon.

Ramsgate Sands, beside the harbour, are in the best English seaside tradition and there is also a small beach, reached by steps, directly below The Grange.

As his second wife Louisa died in 1844 just before the family moved into the house, it was only after his marriage to Jane Knill in 1848 that the house became the happy family home he dreamed of.

Pugin bought the site on the West Cliff at Ramsgate in 1841.

The house was built between 18 by his builder, George Myers.

The house has a private chapel and a tower, from whose roof Pugin trained his telescope on ships in distress (today’s Landmarkers can also climb out to watch more modern shipping from the freight ferry terminal, visible from the first floor and above).

We have returned most of the house to an appearance that Pugin himself would recognise, including the intricate, jewel-bright interiors (the north courtyard and a bedroom are presented as left by Edward Pugin, who lived at The Grange after his father’s death).
