Folkestone, like many British coastal areas has undergone major rejuvenation of late, which has seen a fantastic new wealth of bars, restaurants, coffee shops & art galleries spring up in the area. Luckily, along with this change, it has not lost any of its character or rich history.
Take a stroll through the old town and new creative quarter, which leads down through the cobbled streets to the seafront where you are welcomed by pubs, eateries and some of the best seafood stalls Britain has to offer.
There are many tourist attractions in and around Folkestone, including the Kent Battle of Britain Museum which is located close by in Hawkinge, with a stunning collection of Spitfires, other warplanes and memorabilia. If you want to get away from the crowds and stretch your legs, you have the Lower Leas Coastal Park Walk which winds its way across the coast comprising of pine avenues, gardens and flowers blooming all year. The fun zone is also home to the largest free adventure play area in the south east and the ever popular amphitheatre.
