Connect to international transport links
Folkestone works for quick and easy access to London and the continent. High Speed 1 means a journey time of just 55 minutes to London St Pancras, with two stations to choose from – Folkestone Central and Folkestone West. This is perfect if you want to work and live by the coast and visit London.
On the roads the M20 and M2 provide links to London as well as to the rest of the UK, continental Europe is just 35 minutes away via the Channel Tunnel either by car or as a passenger on Eurostar which can be accessed from nearby Ashford International. There are also regular ferry services from the Port of Dover which is just 15 minutes away. You can use the Channel Tunnel and be in France in time to enjoy an evening meal and still be back to watch the News at 10.
If you need to travel by air, London Gatwick, London City, and London Heathrow airports are all within easy reach, and the growing London Ashford Airport is available for private jet travel.
