The local area
Human settlement in the local area dates back to Mesolithic times, while the Romans also occupied this part of England’s southeast coast. Lying at the southern edge of the North Downs at a valley in between two cliffs, Folkestone was an important harbour for most of the 19th and 20th centuries. As well as plenty of modern amenities in the town, Folkestone is a fabulous place to live if you love exploring outdoors, with so much natural beauty surrounding the town.
Despite being right on the coast, Folkestone has good transport links, with the M20 motorway starting on the edge of town. This heads northwest towards London and the M25, while the A20 heads along the coast towards Dover. From here you can use the Channel Tunnel to get over to France, while trains to London St Pancras station take around 55 minutes.
There are some highly rated schools in the local area for families with children to consider, with Lyminge CofE among the top primary choices. Other options include Sandgate Primary and the Churchill School, while Highview School and Folkestone Academy are among the choices at secondary level. The Hervey Grammar School and Folkestone School for Girls are the town’s two selective state secondary schools.
