In line with the Government’s instruction to #StayAtHome, the Harbour Arm will be closed from tomorrow (4/4/2020) as part of our efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Please remember to stay safe, look out for each other and follow advice available at Public Health England.

We are keeping the situation under constant review.

COVID-19 UPDATE - Last Updated 24/3/2020

Those who are signed up to our weekly newsletter (get regular updates from Folkestone Harbour Arm here) will know that we intended to start the Folkestone Harbour Arm 2020 Season on the 27th of March. However, circumstances have changed and in common with many other venues and attractions we must reflect official advice to encourage social distancing by postponing the start of our programme for 2020.

Although we will not be staging events that draw large crowds, as an open-air space the Harbour Arm will remain open for promenading with social distancing. We hope this will enable you to enjoy the fresh sea air and incomparable views as the days get longer and the weather improves. 

Details will be shared about how we plan to support our independent traders. Both Docker Bakehouse and Dr Legumes have started an expanded deliverly and take-away service.

We're looking to develop and expand in 2020 with new traders. If you're interested, please read the information below and complete the application form attached below.
