You get a train from Reading to Waterloo. From the main concourse, there's an escalator that takes you to a bridge leading to Waterloo East station. Catch a Ramsgate train from there and it stops at Folkestone Central. It takes about 3 and a half hours. You'll find train times and fares at the National Rail site

Will take 2.5 hours from Reading station to Folkestone station and will cost £44 for a one way ticket, Google national rail for details.

You can go via Waterloo as has been said - but those trains are very slow. You can do it a lot faster (2 hrs 15 mins is the bast I can see) by taking a fast train to Paddington, the Underground to St Pancras, then a high speed train to Folkestone.

The correct answer is Christopher's above Through tickets available (A less expensive route avoiding London is to change at Redhill and Tonbridge. If you are going this route specify it to the clerk in the ticket office so you get the correct ticket)
