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.
At the moment, the Harbour Arm experience is slightly different. We’ve had to introduce some new ways of running the site, as your safety and the safety of our staff is our top priority. Before you visit, please take some time to familiarise yourself with our new policies, designed to make sure everyone can have an enjoyable time in a safe environment.VIEW OUR NEW POLICIES
