Driving, you will either come down Dungeness Road from the Lydd roundabout or along Coast Drive.

If from Lydd, after a mile pass the brown sign to the RSPB on the right of the road, then pass Halfway Bush on the map and the entrance road to the power station also on your right, and a road on your left (Kerton Road). You are now approaching some houses on your left and right. The road curves to the left (becoming Battery Road) but keep right. There is a blue Dungeness sign immediately on your left, then, before the open white gates, turn immediately right down a rough driveway towards a big white building. At the top of the drive, there is a sign on the ground saying Coastguard Cottages. We are to the left of the big white building. Please park, next to the blue car, in front of the brown garage ahead (not the garage on your left next to the white and black bungalow).

If along Coast Drive, you will come to the Pilot Inn in front of you as the road curves right and becomes Battery Road.  Drive just a little way and turn left.  Then immediately right etc as above.

If by bus, get off at the Pilot Inn stop, come along Battery Road just a little way, and turn left. Then immediately right etc as above.

You can reach Dungeness by car; by bus from Ashford, Hastings, Rye, Hythe, Folkestone, or other; by steam railway in season from Hythe on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway..

If by cab call 07824171778 about an hour before needed. If you take a cab from outside Ashford station, check the price before getting in. There are cabs waiting outside Rye station. A cab from either place should cost about £30 each way..
