There are lovely sites to see in Folkestone and the Creative Quarter was one of our favourites, it should not be overlooked. I loved the Creative Quarter for its original independent shops and galleries. It is also a place where you can get a very good coffee at Googies, to a Kiwi this is important.

Quaint area of town with narrow cobbled streets full of quirky vintage shops and nice places to eat & drink. Very steep so maybe not suitable for those with walking difficulties.

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.
