Folkestone was once the epitome of a fashionable Edwardian seaside resort. You can still experience its elegance by strolling along The Leas, where ladies and gentlemen used to walk arm in arm, dressed in their finery.

Today it is a thriving town with a strong creative and cultural scene. The Folkestone Triennial art project has set up a range of public works by acclaimed artists around the seafront and town centre.
