Day out in Folkestone - what to do?

I'm taking some out for the day in Folkestone, but I don't know the area at all. I've booked them in for a bit of pampering at a salon and for a meal at a lovely restaurant. What else is there we could do - money is not an issue?

Are there are any really expensive clothes shops in the area?

There is the lift on the cliffs which is Victorian. No special shopping in Folkestone but a nice walk along the bottom of the cliffs.

Dover castle is not far and is a nice place to visit.

Ashford Outlet centre not far and the nearest place for a shop up

Hi Miffi.

I was in Folkestone last weekend and was very disapointed by it. I did see a couple of nice looking restaurants and believe it or not the best looking pub in the town is the Weatherspoons. I did not have a drink but went in for a look around.
