Folkestone is a popular seaside city, with long sandy beaches and historical harbours. Explore the Leas Cliffs which surround the beach, from where you can ride on the Leas Lift, a Victorian water lift which opened in 1885 and connects the cliffs to the beach. At the top of the cliffs you will find the Martello Tower, which was originally constructed as a defence against Napoleon. The George's House Gallery holds regular exhibitions which showcases the work of local artists. There are many indoor adventure playgrounds to keep kids entertained, which is a perfect plan B for when the typical British weather sets in. If the sun is shining be sure to take some time to explore the beautiful Lower Leas Coastal Park which has its own outdoor amphitheatre, followed by traditional fish and chips on the seafront.
