Royal Victoria Pavilion

I have information from a reliable source that a developer has been found who wants to restore the exterior of the building and to convert the inside shops and an area for a farmers market.

I gather the intention is to restore the porch that was demolished by the casino operator, I believe some compromises may have to be made to keep within a reasonable budget, for instance it may be too expensive to replace the windows in the roof.

At the moment reports are being prepared to resolve the various problems that the building has like the cellar that floods.


  1. I hope this is true that would be fantastic news

  2. If only - I'll keep my fingers crossed


Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
