Folkestone Harbour Festive MarketPlace 

The Folkestone Harbour Festive Marketplace return in November 2024, for the weekends running up to Christmas.  There will be late night shopping every Friday from 4pm to 8pm and the market will be open again on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 6pm.  You will find the marketplace by following the starry lights on top of the huge Christmas Tree set right in the middle.  It’s a magical setting with festive music, activities, free films for the family, mulled wine and the best, original, locally made gifts you can find. For now, have a review of what 2023 had on offer.

Nestled cosily in between The Goods Yard and Harbourside, after you’ve shopped for your unique gifts you can choose one of our new indoor restaurants to sit in, warm up and enjoy delicious food.

Harbour Grotto

New for this year is the Folkestone Harbour Grotto.  Based in Customs House there’s a wonderful harbour-themed grotto for the children (big and small) to explore.  Created by artist Sally Hogarth, come and discover what’s inside!
