Wedding Venues in Folkestone (8)

Situated near to the eastern edge of England’s famous South Coast, Folkestone is a seaside town which has plenty to attract wedding planners. During the nineteenth century, Folkestone developed as a harbour town and its position close to France on the English Channel meant that trade and transport developed. Today, Folkestone is still an important point of transit, being the first UK terminal that visitors from continental Europe reach when they use the Channel Tunnel. In terms of wedding venues in Folkestone, there are plenty of choices available. You could choose to get hitched in one of the town’s historic buildings, for instance, or perhaps opt for a wedding in a college building, a hotel or even a theatre space. While wedding venues in Folkestone include these now traditional places, sports fans may like to know that sporting venues with function rooms are available to hire as well. For a lot of brides and grooms, the attraction will be a seaside wedding with a party of the beach.
Folkestone is situated at the extreme edge of the North Downs, on an escarpment where that range of hills meets the sea. There are some attractive and distinctive-looking cliffs in the area which make for a great background setting if you are considering a set of wedding photographs. The town has a number of landmarks which make it stand out from others in this picturesque part of Kent. Wedding guests will probably be drawn to visiting the pretty harbour, but the nearby tower - built in Napoleonic times - is worthy of a viewing, too. There is also a famous white horse, etched into Cheriton Hill near to the tunnel entrance. In addition, visitors can find a superb country park to the west of the town which has footpaths around a lake in a valley setting. Nearby Hythe and Lympne are also well worth checking out as they both offer excellent alternative places to get married with top-quality venues in their own right.
