The approach to Whitstable from the west is along the M2. Where the road divides at the turning for Canterbury follow the A299 towards Ramsgate and Margate. After about 4 miles take the turn off for Whitstable. Follow the slip road up to the second roundabout where you take the first exit down into the town.

 

Drive through the town following the main street until you find yourself passing the harbour on your left. Continue for 150m past the bowling alley, (also on your left), and turn left just after the zebra crossing.

Follow the road, (Beach Walk), which turns right as you reach the sea wall. Drive to where the road ends in a cul-de-sac just past the front of The Hotel Continental. 

Access to the house by car is now either along the pedestrianised promenade, (ahead and to the left), or up the - also pedestrianised - Tarmac lane, (ahead and slightly to the right), which is marked on the map below as a continuation of Beach Walk, and is known locally as Lovers Walk. Both routes to the house have barriers placed across them to prevent unauthorised access by vehicles. The barrier across Lovers Walk is immediately apparent at the start of the way up to the house. The barrier across the promenade is located after about 75m. If the barriers are locked then please park in one of the public pay and display bays and walk down to the house, (2 minutes), to collect the barrier key. Otherwise carefully drive along the promenade past the grassy slope to your right and Kiora is the first house. A parking bay for one car is available outside the house on the promenade. Additionally there is a garage and drive accessible via Lovers Walk at the top of the slope.
