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.
UPDATE: FOLKESTONE HARBOUR ARM IS NOW OPEN TO THE PUBLIC FOR PROMENADING DAILY BETWEEN 8:30AM - 5.30PM
After careful consideration, we have made a decision to re-open the Harbour Arm for promenading following the recent shift in government advice.
