St George the Martyr Church Hill, off High Street.
Built between 1824 and 1827 to the design of Henry Hemsley but on Mr Hemsley's death was completed by Henry Kendall. St George's is the civic church of Ramsgate, Georgian Gothic in design, built of white brick with stone dressings and string courses. The outstanding architectural feature is the octagonal Lantern tower built as an aid to shipping at the instigation of Trinity House. The galleried interior has an impressive Dunkirk Memorial Window.

The Grange, St Augustine's Road.
AWN Pugin built The Grange for his family on land he bought in 1840. In a letter he wrote 'I shall not erect a Grecian villa but a most substantial catholic house not very large but convenient and solid'. The Grange fell into disrepair and was eventually purchased by The Landmark Trust who have restored it to a very high standard and it is now let for holidays.

St Laurence Church, High Street, St Lawrence.
The oldest building in Ramsgate of flint and Caen stone construction founded in 1062 as a chapel of ease to St Mary's, Minster. The architecture is mainly Early Norman, Late Norman, Early English and Victorian. The churchyard has numerous listed monuments.
