How to Find Us

The Windmill is located on the historic St Peter's Footpath, around 1 mile inland from the sea. Situated in a prominent position on top of a hill, the windmill is easily visible from some distance around.

GETTING HERE BY ROAD

Approaching Margate on the A299/A28, continue along the A28 until you pass Margate Main Sands on your left. At the Clock Tower Roundabout, take the 2nd exit and climb the hill to Cecil Square. Turn right at the traffic lights and after 1/3rd of a mile, merge left onto the High Street, next to St John's Church. After another half a mile, take the 2nd exit at the roundabout onto College Road. The next turning on the right is St Peter's Footpath and you will be able to see the Windmill in front of you.
There is limited on street parking outside the Mill.

GETTING HERE BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT

The nearest railway station is Margate, around 1.5miles from the Mill. Unfortunately, no bus routes directly connect the station to the Windmill. The nearest bus stop is at St John's Church, served by the LOOP. The Mill is around half a miles walk from here along St Peter's Footpath.

GETTING HERE ON FOOT

We are ideally situated on St Peter's Footpath, which connects St Peter's Church and St Johns Church and forms the major part of the Turner and Dickens Walk, connecting both Margate and Broadstairs seafronts. This is well signposted with small, brown, T&D signs and following this route will bring you directly to the front of the mill.

The Windmill is open to the public on Sunday afternoons between June and August and on special occasions at other times during the year.
Admission is free, but donations towards the upkeep of the windmill are gratefully received.
