In Folkestone's charming streets, you will meet cutting-edge art and quaint scenery. In the Creative Quarter, 100 artistic enterprises fill the cobbled, historic heart of town, along with pastel-painted studio-galleries, quirky stores, cool bars and chic eateries.
A short stroll away, the mile-long cliff-top promenade of The Leas offers pristine sea views to France. You can ride the historic Leas Lift down to the Lower Leas Coastal Park for a picnic or a BBQ, then get some sand between your toes on Folkestone's Sunny and Sands beach.
Watch the latest releases in the characteristic Silver Screen Cinema, located in the Quarterhouse, which is a hub of creativity and art where you can find live comedy performances and shows. It is also just moments from the harbour.
Folkestone's creative quarter is a buzz of artists’ studios and creative businesses. It offers aspiring artists, retailers and business people a chance to become part of a lively and ever-growing community.
