Ramsgate has the UK's only Royal Harbour, designed by John Smeaton (1724-1792), plus a thriving port. The town is rich in historical associations. Queen Victoria visited as a child, AWN Pugin (1812-1852) built his home, The Grange, here, and Vincent van Gogh lived at Spencer Square for a few months in 1876. The Ramsgate Society's blue plaques scheme commemorates Ramsgate personalities including John Le Mesurier, Karl Marx, the Duke of Wellington, and William Garrow. A Town Trail booklet was published in 2012.
