One of the most important Gothic Revival buildings in the world: this is the personal church of Augustus Pugin - the man who designed the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, and led the revival of all things Gothic. Here he was his own paymaster, so the building is entirely according to his own 'ideal' design. Commemorating the world-changing event of St Augustine of Canterbury landing on Thanet, bringing Christianity to the English. This is the shrine of St Augustine - the first Archbishop of Canterbury. His significant mission brought written laws, music, art and much more!
