The Grange (left of picture) was the home of the Victorian architect and designer Augustus Pugin. He designed it in the Victorian Gothic style; it is a Grade I listed building. Pugin bought the land for the site at West Cliff, Ramsgate, in 1841.The house was built between 1843 and 1844 by the builder George Myers. Pugin's second wife died in 1844 and it was only after his third marriage to Jane Knill in 1848 that it became a family home. The interior of the house was finally completed in 1850. It is built from the inside out in the sense that the layout of the rooms was considered before the outside of the building. This is in contrast to the Georgian style that preceded it. The style was influential on subsequent English architecture designed by architects like Edwin Lutyens

St Augustine's Church (right of picture) or the Shrine of St Augustine of Canterbury is a Roman Catholic Church in Ramsgate, Kent. It was the personal church of Augustus Pugin, The church is an example of Pugin's design ideas, and forms a central part of Pugin's collection of buildings in Ramsgate. Having built his home (The Grange, Ramsgate, next door), Pugin began work on St Augustine's in 1846 and worked on it until his death in 1852 (aged 40). His sons completed many of the designs. This is the site where Pugin is buried, in a vault beneath the chantry chapel he designed, alongside several members of his family.

Augustus Pugin was the main architect & designer of the Palace of Westminster in London or as we know it the houses of Parliament.
