This building has been on my to do list since I first studied AWN Pugin at University and I was thrilled to find it open to the public on my birthday, I jumped at the chance to drag my long suffering partner from Southampton to Ramsgate and the building did not disappoint. I had wondered whether the bespoke wallpaper with... More

This house is amazing. Beautifully restored with fabulous rooms in a great location. Perfect for a weekend away with friends. There's plenty to do in the area around the house....... a spitfire museum about three miles away, a nature reserve a mile or so away and bracing walks along the coastline. The house is the star of the show though... More

I only had a fleeting knowledge of Pugin before visiting The Grange today. Our small group guide, Penny of The Landmark Trust, brought his life and achievements to the fore in a fascinating and informative tour of the house. Well worth a visit if you are in Ramsgate.

The Grange I've known since 1959, when I joined St Augustine's Abbey School as a pupil: The Grange was the Junior School. I'd been meaning to revisit since I was last there in the early 70's,when it was still under the auspices of the monastery across the road and was used as a shelter for the homeless and disadvantaged. It... More

A great visit as it was a small group and the guide was brilliant. So enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The house is quite small by stately home terms but cosy in a Victorian family kind of way. The decoration has been carefully reinstated so you get the sense of Pugin's original design.

Augustus Pugin's House fully restored magnificently by LandMark Trust. A must for Gothic Revival fans and followers of Pugin's work. Only fully accessible on"Open Days", look them up on web. Well worth the effort

Augustus Pugin designed and built the Palace of Westminster and many other buildings in the Gothic Revival style of Architecture. This is such an amazing place to visit if you are interested in architecture. Pugin designed everything in this house, even the wallpaper. The fireplaces also have a unique story. There is a private family chapel and a tower from... More

The Grange is now renovated and opened by the Landmark Trust and all the staff inside are very interested and informed people. You can tour the house alone and it has been beautifully renovated throughout. Next door is St Augustines, his church, which is also lovely to see, especially the stained glass windows which are gradually being cleaned and repaired.... More
