Coach Parking

The excellent transport links to Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate make it an easy place to get to.

This area is not only served by the country’s only high-speed rail service, meaning connections from London are relaxingly short (St Pancras International Station London to Ramsgate 80 minutes), but also, there are excellent road links with the M25 linking with the M26, M20, M2 and A299.

Sea crossings from the continent to Dover are an ideal way to travel as Dover itself is only 20 miles (32km) from our coast or on the Eurotunnel to Folkestone which is about 30 miles (42km) away
