Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate coach parking provision and drop off points

With good transport links to Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate it makes for a great place to visit.

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 75 minutes), but there are good road links with the M25, 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. For more information on travelling to Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate see our travel section
