Change is in the air in Folkestone, especially around the harbour which is currently undergoing a regeneration project like nothing else on the South Coast of Kent. Huge strides have been made over the last 2 years with the restoration and opening of The Harbour Arm, a completely unique promenade stretching from the old railway station, which used to serve the working port, out to Folkestone Lighthouse. The walkway is lined with interesting restaurants, bars and pop up street food stalls to keep you fed and watered whilst taking in the 360 degree views back along the White Cliffs and out to sea.
Heading back inland you'll find The Old High Street and Creative Quarter leading up to the main town centre. A hub for all things creative, visitors can meander up the cobbled street, pop in and out of the various art galleries, workshops, cafes and creative spaces, with something to interest everyone.
... And Further Afield
Folkestone also possesses fabulous links across Kent and up to London with the High Speed train taking only 55 minutes between Folkestone Central and London St Pancras International station, perfect for a day trip up to the big smoke - or, if you are coming the other way, a sunny day down by the sea.
