Originally the railway terminal for the Folkestone- Boulogne Ferry and departure point for soldiers on their way to the Western Front, the arm still embraces the town’s working fishing harbour, becoming a pivotal point in the town’s future and its historical past.
Small, independent businesses along the pier give it its unique flavour, and its reputation is growing as restoration continues along the platform and across the railway bridge and beyond, with the addition of an onsite bakery and brewery with other seasonal events.
Folkestone’s Harbour Arm has swiftly become the beacon for the regeneration of Folkestone as a destination town.
Folkestone Harbour’s very own outdoor screen opens this season. We are screening The FIFA World Cup and Wimbledon Championships until the 15th July, where you can watch all the scheduled games for free. Expect a family friendly atmosphere where you can come together with friends and family to enjoy an extravaganza of sport. Weekend matches will see your sporting skills tested with games and family challenges for kids and adults alike. From the 18th July we will be launching our outdoor cinema programme with the following show times every week until the end of September.
After a massive turnout for the England VS Tunisia match, we have decided to introduce a ticketing system future for England games, as well as the Quarterfinals, Semifinals and Finals of the FIFA World Cup and Wimbledon Championships. The site will remain free, but you will need to register for tickets to enter.
