Southeastern Rail

Getting to Folkestone on Southeastern trains from London

Train passengers can be in Folkestone in less than an hour thanks to Southeastern's high-speed rail service.

Javelin trains whizz through the Kent countryside at up to 140 miles per hour from London St Pancras or Stratford, taking hundreds of thousands of passengers each year to where they need to be. The high-speed service stops at both Folkestone's stations, with other connections at Westenhanger and Sandling, near Hythe.

Southeastern work with partners including Folkestone Creative Foundation to help promote the hidden gems in our district, as well as our fantastic independent businesses. They often run offers including two-for-one entry to attractions such as Port Lympne Reserve - take a look and see what you can discover by train.
