Italianate Glasshouse and Tea Garden
The Italianate Glasshouse, a Grade II* listed historic monument was erected in the grounds of East Cliff Lodge, Sir Moses Montefiore's 22 acre estate in 1832. Sir Moses, a British financier and former Sheriff of London bought the magnificent structure from another impressive house, Bretton Hall in Yorkshire after seeing it in an auction catalogue.
The grounds of the house, now known as King George VI Memorial Park, were eventually taken over by Ramsgate Borough Council and the house was demolished in 1953. Sadly neglected in the past, the Glasshouse was restored in 2005.
Glasshouse open Monday - Friday 1st April to 30th September
Tea Garden is open on fine weather days 10.30 am - 4.30 pm Thursday to Sunday until 30th September.
