FOLKESTONE HARBOUR IS OPEN

It’s time to explore our new food, drink and retail outlets for 2024.

2024 OPPORTUNITIES

When the Harbour first reopened as a public visitor attraction in 2015, it was home to just 6 seasonal food & drink businesses. We’re incredibly proud that more than 60 independent businesses now call Folkestone Harbour home. Right now, we’re looking for new businesses for a variety of opportunities in 2024. If you’ve got a unique offer you think will work in Folkestone Harbour, we want to hear from you.

Folkestone Marketplace

Explore a community of independent makers, crafters, designers and brands.

Folkestone Harbour Arm: The Place To Be

Folkestone’s restored Harbour Arm is a beautiful promenade out at sea with a World-class view. Formerly a ferry port, Folkestone Harbour Arm is now home to a growing collection of independent businesses that has become a centre for Food, Drink and Entertainment in Kent; the Garden of England.

Join us as we reinvent the English seaside experience.
