Beautiful area of Folkestone, stunning sea views, especially at sunset. The perfect place for a stroll as it's so flat, ideal for wheelchairs, pushchairs and children/ adults alike. So glad we stayed in this gorgeous area.

Having no real expectations of Folkestone we were suitably surprised by the well kept and very pleasant promenade. Lovely views and on a hot sunny day a lovely way to spend an hour or so.
