About Folkestone

On a clear day, Folkestone residents can see the coast of France, just 24 miles away. Indeed, Folkestone's picturesque seaside location on the south-east coast of England has always been one of its main attractions. Once favoured by members of the Royal family, today Folkestone combines seaside attractions with the more practical draw of the Channel Tunnel.

A settlement is known to have existed at Folkestone since the 7th century - although for many years it remained small and prone to invasion and harassment by England's various enemies. Even in the 17th century, Folkestone only had 120 houses - today, on the other hand, it is home to more than 50,000 people.

The town has undergone considerable regeneration in recent years and has also benefited from the introduction of the high-speed rail link to London from nearby Ashford. Folkestone is also home to an internationally-known literary festival and has a growing creative scene, including the Folkestone Triennial art exhibition.

As you might expect in such a diverse and busy town, van hire in Folkestone is readily available. Local van rental companies offer a wide range of van types, including:
