Hotels in Folkestone

Tucked alongside the English Channel in Kent, Folkestone is a great combination of stunning natural scenery and buzzing hotspots, making it the perfect destination for a trip away.

This ancient settlement was a humble fishing village with an untameable coastline, making commercial development as a port difficult, right up to the early 19th century when Folkestone Harbour was built.

The Folkestone we see today is a popular tourist destination with an intriguing mix of historic sights and fun activities within easy reach.

Folkestone must-sees

Make sure to explore the area while you're in the town. The spectacular cliffs known as The Leas towering above the beach, the Kent Downs and the Lower Leas Coastal Park are all great places to spend an afternoon. And if you'd like to relax, take a trip up The Leas Lift for an easier way to soak up the dramatic views from the top. You may even see the Folkstone White Horse imprinted on the hillside from a high vantage point. It's set just above the Channel Tunnel terminal.

History buffs can visit the Kent Battle of Britain Museum, or even pop across to the visitor centre set in one of the Martello Towers.

If you'd like a bit of culture, you should definitely check out the Folkestone Creative Quarter. This quaint and lively area in the old town houses boutiques, cafés and creative businesses, and it often has events on. Or visit The Tower Theatre for a fun evening.

Places to eat and stay

If you'd like to get to know the real Folkestone, you should make time to discover as many local eateries as you can. You'll be spoilt for choice with the abundance of charming cafés and restaurants. And, of course, fresh fish and chips. Try Plaice2go, Anna's, which is a cosy bistro, or Conchitas for authentic Mexican food.

When searching for the perfect Folkestone Hotel, make sure to choose somewhere near to the town centre if you can. That way you'll be steps away from all the main attractions. Popular places include Wards Hotel, the Premier Inn, Holiday Inn Express, The Burlington Hotel, and BEST WESTERN Clifton Hotel.

But wherever you stay, get out and see as much of the town as possible and you'll be sure to have a truly memorable break.
