Your Holiday Centre
Folkestone is a port town on the English Channel, in Kent, The town lies on the southern edge of the North Downs at a valley between two cliffs. It was an important harbour and shipping port for most of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Folkestone was only a small fishing community until 1809, when Thomas Telford was commissioned to build a pier and harbour. Today it is a cosmopolitan port with easy access to the channel, the delights of France and the rest of Europe.
There is always something to do here with all year round festivals, including the Folkestone Harbour Festival in July, and all year round entertainment with Folkestone's music and theatre attracting stars from far and wide to perform.
With a colourful history, this lovely town has been home to many famous people, including HG Wells who once lived and wrote here.
