About Folkestone

Folkestone is a port located on the English Channel, in Kent, south-east England. Folkestone developed because of its transport links. With France visible across the Straits of Dover, the town became an important transit point for those travelling from the UK to the Continent. The town's small harbour has little current commercial activity but the town has good road and rail links to the rest of the UK. The town is situated at the foot of the North Downs, with views of the surrounding countryside and the coast of France, a mere 24 miles (39 km) away. The area is a magnet for passing migrating birds.
