About Ramsgate
Ramsgate is an architectural gem with fine examples of Georgian, Regency and Victorian architecture. The Ramsgate Society (a registered charity) has been caring for Ramsgate's architectural heritage since 1964. See links on the left for more information about The Society, and click on the YOUR RAMSGATE link to find out about Ramsgate, its historic buildings and its BUILDINGS at RISK.

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.
