Buzzing with creativity and undergoing exciting regeneration, a visit to this seaside town is a must this summer
If it’s been a few years since you last visited Folkestone, you’re in for a treat. Regeneration has had a big impact on the seaside town and the creative buzz about the place is practically tangible.
Unique, friendly and proud of its heritage, this town has it all, plus one of the best stretches of coast in the country and a high-speed rail link to London.
Despite becoming a ‘limb’ of the Cinque Ports during the 15th century, life in Folkestone was quiet until the construction of the harbour at the beginning of the 19th century catapulted it from sleepy fishing village to busy port almost overnight.
