Gordon House Margate is a Grade II listed building by the sea and home to Lucy, Eddie and Connie.

“Gordon House is our home, but also a large part of the Margate community. As well as a location space for magazine shoots and film shoots, the house is a dynamic space for artists, writers and performers to make & exhibit work and a think tank for sharing and and experimenting with ideas. Being both a home and workspace, creatives from all over the world create work in the space during residencies, exhibit in our lower ground floor gallery space and join us for workshops. Artists can join us for workshops, develop collaborations and explore the various spaces of Gordon House's vast interior.

HISTORY

Gordon House was built in the 1790's and first recorded in 1816 as Turner's Day School.  By 1876 Gordon House was known as the Victoria Hospital for Children's Convalescent Home. In 1894 it was taken over by the YMCA, after which in 1903, it was used by the Ragged Union and Shaftesbury Society. In that year, 382 girls and 20 boys from London with physical disabilities, attended the home for a holiday during the Summer.
