Disabled facilities - Radar

A radar key is needed to gain access to our disabled toilets, these can be purchased at Thanet Gateway, Cecil Street, Margate or from our Visitor Information Centre 

Please note that this is a non refundable purchase. 

For security purposes disabled toilets are padlocked outside of opening times. 

The National Key Scheme (NKS) has been set up by the Royal Association for Disability and Rehabilitation (Radar) to allow disabled key holders independent entry to all toilets fitted with a lock, which include toilets in other authorities, railways, pubs and shopping centres.
