We had a family weekend at Folkestone and stayed at the Burston Grand Hotel, right on the harbour. The photo was taken from our room at the Burston. We took over 7 rooms for all the family which turned out to be a good weekend all round. We could walk to the town from the harbour and visit the market on the Sunday morning.
We also rode on the chair lift which takes you up the cliffs to the main town.

    Nice place! The chair lift up the cliff sounds a great idea.
