Droit House

Brief description

The building is currently used by the Visitor Information Centre. The extension can be hired and has been used as part of a unit base.

The building was originally constructed as a Customs Building in 1828, which was later destroyed in the Second World War. It was rebuilt using the original plans in 1947.  In 2001, a circular extension was added to the rear of the building.

The paved area including the disabled car parking is owned by Kent County Council – to request to use this area you will need to contact Kent Film Office.



The closest car park is the Harbour Arm, please note this car park is now cashless. There is additional parking in the car park behind the RNLI.


The Droit House has a ‘private’ toilet facility.


There are a number of cafés and restaurants nearby including Turner Contemporary, Bebeached restaurant on the Harbour Arm and a variety of cafés and restaurants in the Old Town.
