Why live in Folkestone? 

Folkestone is a harbour town in Kent that sits on the edge of the North Downs.

Transport in Folkestone is exceptionally good as there are two main train stations (Folkestone Central and Folkestone West) with high-speed services to London St Pancras. These services take 53 minutes, making this a fantastic place to live for commuters. There are also services to Dover Priory station, which has connections to Whistable and Ramsgate. The M20 motorway is a short drive from Folkestone town centre.

There are great local schools for children of all ages throughout the area, and all schools have achieved a good or an outstanding rating from Ofsted. 

There’s a mix of shopping in the town centre, from arty independents in the Cultural Quarter through to some of the national shopping brands. 

Folkestone has an exciting mix of nightlife to enjoy with some fantastic restaurants serving up fresh, local seafood in venues with stunning views across the harbour and out to sea. There are plenty of family-friendly options, as well as bars for people who are out later into the night. Folkstone also has great traditional pubs, serving fantastic food and ales. 

The town has GP services and a local hospital. There are other good amenities too, such as a library, sports centre, and local post offices. 

The award-winning local beaches provide a lot of fun and activities throughout the year. There are some great walks along the coastline here; the walk to Dover is particularly popular and it’s about seven miles long. 

With London so easy to get to, Folkstone locals enjoy the best of living in a seaside town that’s surrounded by gorgeous countryside, whilst also having access to everything the capital city has to offer.

Thank you to Celia and her team at Hunters for their letting services. Everything was explained to us fully and communication and contact was great. Celia did a great job making all of us feel comfortable and at ease with the process. I look forward to continuing to use Hunters and would recommend them. Thank you Celia and team!

Mr Tamang

This was our first experience using Hunters and it was by far the best we have had as tenants of a property let and managed by a real estate agency. The staff have been amazing and super helpful throughout the tenancy. If I had a property to let in the area I would absolutely chose Hunters to manage it, they have been very responsive to any query and conducted the management visits as required. A special mention goes to Celia, for her pragmatic and resolutive approach and care.

Mr Golding

Fabulous service from Charlie and the team. Brilliant recommendations on our properties in the area. Once we can, we will be using them to help us further.

Local area guide

Folkestone is a lovely harbour town in Kent and on the edge of the North Downs. It’s the perfect blend of beach and countryside.

Transport in Folkestone is exceptionally good. There are two main train stations (Folkestone Central and Folkestone West) with high-speed services to London St Pancras, taking 53 minutes. There are also services to Dover Priory station, which connects to Whistable and Ramsgate. 

Stagecoach buses have connections to Hastings and Dover, which is a great day trip for families. The routes travel through Rye, St Marys Bay and New Romney, with some great sights along the way. The M20 motorway is a short drive from Folkestone town centre, giving great opportunities to travel further afield by car, whether for work or pleasure. 

Folkestone has fantastic schooling for local children, from primary level and right through secondary school. All of the local schools have a good or outstanding rating from Ofsted. As the schools here are conveniently spread throughout the area, you’ll find the perfect school close by, no matter which part of Folkestone you’re living in. 

The Creative Quarter is a gorgeous cobbled area that has 100 artistic shops and enterprises, including records stores, art galleries, literary cafés, and more. This part of town is a gorgeous, atmospheric place to while away the hours within the old, narrow streets. 

The town centre has some big high street names, such as New Look, Boots and Primark. There are large supermarkets locally too, such as a Tesco Superstore. 

Folkestone is a great place for nightlife, with fantastic bars and restaurants all over town. Rocksalt is a really popular restaurant and bar for locals. People enjoy sipping a cocktail on the rooftop while overlooking the harbour on a long summer evening or devouring a delicious meal made with fresh seafood and other local ingredients. Skuba Bar & Bistro is another great choice with flavourful food at reasonable prices. It’s popular not only with families earlier in the evening but also with partiers who make the most of the bar at the weekends. The Radnor Arms is a renovated, quirky Victorian pub with a great selection of food and drink on offer. 

Folkestone has great local amenities with good healthcare including a local hospital, Folkstone Library, two Post Offices, and Folkestone Sports Centre, which has a gym, swimming pool, and more. 

Families love living here because of all that the beach and harbour have to offer, and the fact that there are plentiful cafes and bars to enjoy all year round. People enjoy the beautiful coastline walks, especially the one from Folkstone to Dover. Easy access to London ensures that people living here get the best of both worlds; an idyllic seaside town, and all the fun and buzz of the capital city. 

If you like exploring, then it’s worth visiting Folkestone’s iconic White Horse, which is known all over Kent. It’s a great place to visit, but be warned that the hill is quite steep so can provide quite a challenge.
