Hotels, B&B's and Self Catering in Folkestone

Folkestone is a port town on the English Channel. The town lies on the southern edge of the North Downs and has a wealth of cultural, natural and entertaining attractions. Until the turn of the millennium, the Harbour Arm was a key transport hub linking Folkestone and mainland Europe. It is now a bustling public pier and favourite food, drink and entertainment destination. The former railway station and ferry terminal have been restored to reflect the heritage of the site, including its role as an embarkation point for soldiers in WWI. There are two main beaches in Folkestone, nestled below the Leas cliffs. The Lower Leas Coastal Park is home to the largest free adventure play area in the south-east. A Martello Tower stands on the cliff above Copt Point and houses a visitor centre. The Folkestone White Horse is carved on Cheriton Hill above the Channel Tunnel terminal. Folkestone is near to the Battle of Britain Memorial in Capel-le-Ferne and the Kent Battle of Britain Museum.
