The Place to be – Folkestone Harbour arm
The newly renovated Harbour Arm in Folkestone is one of the town’s main attractions. The Arm offers many different places to eat and drink, live music, the Big Screen and stunning views of the town, White Cliffs and looking out across to France. It’s a place to promenade, meet friends and get a perspective on Folkestone, and life in general.
There’s the Big Screen on the Arm where you can see a fantastic selection of films, enjoy some tasty snacks, and also follow our country’s sporting events over the summer.
Folkestone’s Harbour Arm is known for its food vendors; you can find fantastic vegan food in the East Yard at Dr Legumes; feast on the deliciously freshly baked bread and beer from Docker Brewery and Bakehouse (as featured on ITV’s James Martin’s Great British Adventure.
The Sunday Harbour Markets run each week and offer antiques, vintage clothing, locally made jewellery and lots of beautiful things you can’t live without. Come along and join us!
Discover what’s on at the Harbour Arm
If you walk along the Arm – which is open for promenading 7 days a week, from dawn until dusk, you will also find many more places to eat and drink. Pete from Bathtub and Gun offers a wonderful cocktail workshops, and nextdoor you can discover the delights of Basque street food with Pick Up Pinxtos. Giles Coren, the food critic for The Times reckons this is the best Basque food he’s ever tasted!
If you’re just looking for a beautifully produced, local cup of tea, rock up at Custom and the Tea Caddy for a cup of Debonair Tea. You could go for something more sparkly at the Lighthouse Champagne Bar, situated right at the end of the Arm, with stunning views to France and back over the town. Pizza at Follies and the Big Greek Bus always hit the spot. Look out for some new tastes to try this year and some fantastic events for the whole community.
