The Creative Quarter is full of small shops for art, fashion antiques and artifacts of all sorts. We go there every time we visit Folkestone, as there is always something new to see browsing the art shops.

Was a bit disappointed to walk through the cobbled streets to see shop after shop after shop closed. Only th odd gallery or coffe shop was open. Interspersed witha few empty shops - it still has a way to go.
