How to find us
Take the M2 motorway which leads to east Kent. Stay on it when it becomes the A299 (Thanet Way) and follow signs to Ramsgate. On entering Ramsgate, at a large roundabout after a petrol station, take the A255 (Canterbury Road East) towards Ramsgate town centre. At the next roundabout, take the B2054 (London Road) following signs to the Town Centre and West Cliff. Follow the road to the next roundabout, and take the third exit towards West Cliff and drive down the hill towards the sea. St Augustine’s is on your right as the road bends left.
To park, turn right into Royal Esplanade instead of following the road to the left. Here there is ample on-street free parking.
