Historically The Royal Esplanade was a leisure amenity for the population of Ramsgate and the seasonal visitors the town attracted. Many of the original features remain today, including the croquet lawns, boating pool, art gallery, cafes and promenade, interspersed with areas of open space. A stroll along the level clifftop parade provides stunning views over Pegwell Bay. At various points there are also steeply sloped access points to the base of the cliffs and the beaches below. The Grange is sited at the Eastern end of the esplanade , designed by Pugin and used as his family home, it is now owned by The Landmark Trust and regularly open to the public.
