|Route outline (key)|
The B2064 is a short road to the west of Folkestone.
Following completion of the M20, the section of the A20 that formerly ran through Cheriton was reclassified, with the main stretch – running from junction 12 of the motorway and along Cheriton High Street (roughly parallel to the railway line to the south) as far the light-controlled junction where Cheriton Road crosses Cherry Garden Avenue / Beachborough Road – becoming the B2064.
At this junction the B2064 cannons off the A2034, turning right to head south (along formerly unclassified roads) and passing under the railway line next to Folkestone West station (which is the eastern terminus of the UK's section of the Orient Express, before passengers are conveyed to France via coach through the Channel Tunnel). Continuing from here along Shorncliffe Road, it swings first southeastward and then to the east, to terminate on the A259 by the South Kent College.
From 1922 until the completion of the M20, the number B2064 had been applied to a nearby, but quite different, road. This started on the A259 in Seabrook, a few yards to the west of the southern end of the B2063, and headed north through Horne Street to reach what was then the A20, at the western end of Cheriton High Street. All of this route is now unclassified; indeed, the A20 immediately west of the original northern terminus was severed by the building of the M20.
