Went to The Old High Street and Tontine Street on a Saturday expecting vibrancy and unusual/unique shopping. Tontine St was mostly shut/empty, and eerily quiet. Three interesting 'quality' shops in the Old High Street, a couple of galleries, lots of hoarding and again, barely a soul to be seen. No atmosphere on this fresh March morning.

A great are to walk around and visit boutique shops. A hidden gem in the UK for sure. The surrounding art adds to the vibrancy of Folkestone as a whole, and is underappreciated by the locals and the UK.

The creative corner appeared to me to consist of a few art and craft shops on one street and one centre where you could go and be involved in making your own craft items.

Really nice atmosphere in the old town and the high street on the way to the small sandy beach. More shops and coffees seems to have opened. Nice coffees and burgers at Googies. A great day out of London.

What more could I add, other than come visit any time of the year, and you will always find something on. You can feel the buzz of creativity in the air. People are friendly and welcoming.

Planned on spending time in Folkestone on our trip from Dover to Hastings, but found the shops closed on Mondays. Did find a place to stop for a cup of coffee.

Was in Folkestone for an overnight before a daytrip to France, and with time to kill the night before had a walk around the Cultural Quarter on Saturday late afternoon. Interesting and Unique stores and eating and drinking, in an area that's clearly had money and attention lavished on it - a nice way to spend a little time
