Originally a small fishing village, Folkestone developed during the 17th century into a much bigger town able to protect the coast from wars and invasions from the Continent. At the beginning of the 1800's the town included a harbour and, with the railways in 1843, it's seaside resorts became a fashionable tourist destination shaping the town's prosperity.
The town features many activities, such as indoor winter sports, walking by the sea or in its award winning Coastal Park, shopping, sightseeing. Over the last years lots of regeneration has been taking place like the new Creative Quarter, a part of the old town transformed into an artists area full of quirky cafes, galleries and boutiques gorgeous restaurants.
Folkestone has always been a busy transit town for people travelling to France, with the Channel Tunnel the town has got very good connections to the continent. High speed services reach Ashford International and Ebbsfleet and the journey time to London is around 52 minutes. Even by car, Folkestone is located at the end of the M20 and on the A20, Ashford, Maidstone, Canterbury, Dover and London are accessible.

Folkestone has always been a beautiful holiday destination but has lost some of its shine to introduction of cheap air-travel. But the sea with its beautiful walks, friendly people and some fantastic properties have remained. Along with recent investment by Roger De Haan Fokestone is begging to reinvent itself as a cultural hub of the English coastline and caused the art scene in Folkestone to explode.
Seagulls and fresh air aplenty!
