Artistic enclaves, stunning shores, unique histories and expansive wildlife escapes make Folkestone in Kent well worth a visit.

In the quaint regenerated streets of Folkestone, you'll discover cutting-edge art in its unique Creative Quarter, which houses over 100 artistic enterprises within its cobbled centre. Explore pastel-painted studio-galleries, and indulge in quirky stores, laid-back bars and chic eateries. The mile-long cliff-top promenade of The Leas is just a few steps away from the Burlington Hotel, offering sea views to France, and a ride to the Lower Leas Coastal Park where you can enjoy a picnic or BBQ on the beach; or head to the Folkestone Harbour Arm for an eclectic mix of food, drink and entertainment. Be sure to book early at Michelin starred chef Mark Sargeant's award-winning Rocksalt restaurant for super-fresh fish and al-fresco dining with superb harbour views, or stay-in with us in the stylish Bay Tree Bar & Grill for modern British casual dining and sumptuous signature cocktails. Eurotunnel Le Shuttle also brings France closer too, with Folkestone just 35 minutes away from Calais.
