Folkestone is a visionary place, where the originators of the Vegan movement in the 1950s and 60s have worked creating plant-based milks and chocolate at Plamil.

There’s Spanish and Basque tapas on offer with El Cortador and Pick Up Pinxtos and Folkestone’s food scene is developing with pop-up opportunities to develop ideas, and support for local independent businesses. There are fantastic drinking opportunities too with Bathtub and Gun, The Potting Shed and great pubs too.
