travel information

by grammiejacques

a couple of questions...first is there a bus or train from Dover Ferry to Folkestone? Also is the Asda store a fairly large store? I am living in France at present and trying to find a store that sells weight watcher products...thanks so much

No idea about the size of Folkestone's Asda, but even their small ones will sell some Weightwatcher products, in my experience.

There is a National Express bus from the ferry port to Folkestone 3x per day. Times, fares and booking here;

Otherwise, I think you will have to go into the town to catch he ordinary buses. More than one service. Search for 'dover' and 'folkestone' here:

You can also get the train, of course.

There are two large Sainsbury stores in Folkestone. Sainsbury has its own range of healthy eating products. They don't have store in Dover. - click store locator for details

One is very close to the Channel Tunnel terminal and only accessible with a car, the other is in the town centre. There is also one in Deal, which is not far from Dover.

To get to Folkestone from Dover you have to make a short journey (about a mile) to Dover Priory railway station where there is a train to Folkestone every 30 minutes, or to the Pencester Road bus station where buses leave for Folkestone about every 20 minutes.

The ADSA at Folkestone is one of their medium sized outlets and is also in te town centre.

The Dover Tesco store at Whitfield is about 2.5 miles from the ferry terminal, so you might need a taxi to get there and back with your bags of shopping!

Travel Tips for Folkestone

The Folkestone sports center was opened in 1969 by princess Anne, god i was 7 then. Anyway its now 34 years old and it needs major investment, this they say will happen in the next few years. Saying that its still a great place to go. facilaties include a large heated swimming pool, 9 hole pitch and putt golf, dry ski slope, 4 squash courts, 6 tennis courts and a very large main sports hall. There is also a very nice pub with live music on fri and sat nights. Most equipment can be hired at the sports center.

I got up early just to take these few photos of the sun comming up over Folkestone, when its clear and bright especially in the winter months you can take some great photos from this part of Folkestone

This is a view of Folkeston's inner harbour where all the boats are moored, there has been talk for years now about a luxury marina being built but i think that would spoil the beauty of Folkestone harbour, to the left of the photo shows the old coast guard tower which is no longer in use

Neighbouring town

"Town Centre"

As Folkestone is the largest town in the borough of Shepway and has the most shops, it is hard not to go there most every week.

Whether it is to visit the supermarkets at Park Farm or the shops in George Street.

Old Folkestone is a marvel of small streets (although until recently quite run down) and is almost hidden behind the grey concrete *** they put up more recently.

"Harbour & Railway"

Over the years the harbour has become more run down and is now a glorified lorry park.

Once the ferry services stopped the harbout took a turn for the worst. Every year, we read of another rescue plan, and at the time of writing in July 14th 2008, there is another supposed rescue at hand.

Sadly, there are plans afoot to knock down the railway arches that carried the rail line down from the nainline to the harbour station. In the old days of steam trains would cross the channel aboard the steamers.


This year, 2008, we have an arts festival running with artist installations across the town.

See for more details.
