Visiting Folkestone and the Creative Quarter?
Here’s some helpful info…

The Creative Quarter is based in the historic heart of Folkestone in Kent within easy reach of London and the continent, just 57 minutes away from St Pancras station by high speed rail.

The Creative Quarter comprises of The Old High Street, a winding cobbled lane lined with independent shops, and Tontine Street, a busy thoroughfare linking Folkestone Harbour with the centre of the town.

Artists are drawn to the exquisite coastal light afforded by the seaside location and the chance to get involved in the town’s thriving creative community.

The proposed development of Folkestone harbour and seafront does not fall within the remit of The Creative Foundation, but information about a new approach to Folkestone seafront can be found at
