The Grange, Kent

The Grange was built and lived in by Augustus Welby Pugin and remained in his family until 1928. It was here that Pugin produced much of his finest work, including the interiors of the House of Lords.

*We are sorry but we’ve had to suspend these visiting arrangements during the Covid-19 pandemic in order to keep our staff safe. We’ll reinstate them as soon as things get back to normal.*

There are guided tours of the ground floor every Wednesday afternoon (except over Christmas and the New Year). Tours are at 2pm and 3pm. Places are limited and must be booked in advance. Entry is £4.00. Anyone wishing to visit will need to make an appointment. A guide book is available to purchase.

To book a place on a Wednesday tour, please email [email protected].

There is also a small exhibition in the Cartoon Room, a separate building next to The Grange, which provides information about the building, its history and the Pugin family. The Cartoon Room is open on Wednesday afternoons from 2pm - 4pm or by appointment. It is also available to hire for suitable functions.

The exterior of the building and the garden can be viewed on certain days.
