Holiday Summary

  • Travel Type: Coach

Folkestone is unusual in that it lacks a conventional seafront, with most of the resort's facilities being concentrated at the level of the cliff-top Victorian boulevard known as The Leas, whose wide lawns and colourful flower beds are the perfect place to enjoy the wonderful seascapes. The older part of the town with its cobbled streets and village-like atmosphere lies close to the harbour below. Nearby is the bathing beach at East Cliff Sands, at the foot of cliffs crowned by a Martello Tower - a reminder that relations with France were not always as cordial as today! The multi-million pound regeneration of the town centre has given a new buzz to this already vibrant resort, combining twenty-first century shopping centres with traditional shops, boutiques, country markets and a bustling Creative Quarter.
