Folkestone, Kent
Folkestone used to be a busy port with ferry services to and from Boulogne, but with these
ceasing to operate and with the opening of the Channel Tunnel the town lost much of its
business. However, we understand that things are now improving - and it's still a nice place to
visit !  Enjoy the postcards of this channel port as it was years ago ! And click on

brief history of the town.
