Things to do in Folkestone, Kent


Folkestone has recently become famous as the town adjacent to the Channel Tunnel entrance. Folkestone is one of England's most elegant Edwardian resorts.

Though never surrounded by walls, Folkestone retains several excellent examples of the Napoleonic Martello Towers, gun towers designed specifically for beach defence. The town played an important role in the Second World War, when nearby Hawkinge Airfield was a front-line fighter station during the Battle of Britain.

Also at Folkestone you can visit the Elham Valley Railway Museum.
