Ramsey Abbey Gatehouse is a National Trust property located in Ramsey, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, England. It is the remains of a former Benedictine abbey, Ramsey Abbey.

The Abbey was one of the oldest English monasteries, founded as early as the 7th century, but the gatehouse dates from the 15th century.

It was given to the Trust in 1952 in memory of Diana Broughton, the sister of Ailwyn Fellowes, 3rd Baron de Ramsey.
