When the Harbour first reopened as a public visitor attraction in 2016, it was home to just 6 seasonal food & drink businesses. As 2022 draws to a close, we’re incredibly proud that more than 60 independent businesses now call Folkestone Harbour home.
Offering spaces and opportunities for businesses to try out their ideas and giving them the confidence to make Folkestone their full-time home sits at the centre of what we do. In the past year alone, we’ve had existing traders open new, larger spaces on our site, whether it’s an expansion of their premises or a new space altogether, as well as seeing several businesses growing into Folkestone Town.
But we’re not stopping there. This year alone we’ve begun work on an exciting selection of new indoor dining options, have explored widening our offer beyond fantastic food and drink into successful one-off events (Folkestone Funny Fest) and have even built an all-new visitor attraction right into the beach (the Putters! Adventure Golf Course & Café).
Right now, we’re looking for new businesses for a variety of opportunities ahead of 2023. If you’ve got a unique offer you think will work in Folkestone Harbour, we want to hear from you.
