HOW TO GET TO NELSON WERE DESIGNS
We are blessed and privileged to operate our family business within the stunning grounds of the world famous Quex Park Estate. It is a beautiful location hosting many attractions activities and small businesses.
Quex Park is on the southern boundary of Birchington, a coastal village west of Margate in Kent about 75 miles from London, 12 miles from the historic city of Canterbury and 4 miles from the ferry port of Ramsgate.
FREE parking for cars and coaches. Disabled parking is located close to the Museum entrance, in Quex Barn car park and Jungle Jims car park.
From London take the M2, or from Canterbury the A28, and follow the signs for Margate. As you enter Birchington, the Powell-Cotton Museum is clearly signposted alongside All Saints Church (which is on your left). Turn right into Park Lane following directions to Acol. The entrance to Quex Park and the Museum is half a mile on the left.
