Folkestone Creative Quarter

The Creative Foundation's vibrant Creative Quarter is packed full of a wealth of artistic enterprises and unique shops and a huge variety of music, theatre and entertainment.

The Creative Quarter is based in the historic heart of Folkestone, close to the sea and just 57 minutes from London. Compromising of The Old High Street, a winding cobbled lane lined with independent shops, galleries and eateries; and Tontine Street, a busy thoroughfare to the centre of the town, the Creative Quarter is inhabited by hundreds of creative people and is a fantastic example of creatively-led regeneration. Whether you want to shop till you drop, feast on exquisite food or simply take in the beauty of the town, the Creative Quarter has something for everyone.

As well as fantastic shopping, arts & culture destination, the Creative Quarter boasts a wealth of delicious places to eat and drink. Enjoy a coffee surrounded by vintage books in Steep Street. Veggie or vegan? Try out Uno Mas' Central American street food and discover why Beanos Vegetarian Café is a local favourite! Love live music with a speciality ale, cider or wine? Then discover Kipp’s Ale House and the Lime Bar Café. For a family meal or night out with friends then the Creative Quarter has something for every palette including Big Boys Fine Burger Company, Blooms and El Cortador Tapas Restaurant.
