This is a highly scenic coastal walk with fine sea views throughout. It introduces you to some of the quainter sides of Folkestone. We will past two Martello Towers (Napoleonic-era fortifications) onto a high clifftop, following the North Downs Way. This path has fine Channel views, and passes the Battle of Britain Memorial and then a fascinating series of World War II installations, including a rare sound mirror (an early form of aircraft detection that was superseded by radar), and some large gun emplacements.

Please bring a packed lunch or we have a stop on the way in a pub (for lunch, coffee, tea, drinks and snacks)

Return time:
That depends on how fast we walk! But we should be done walking by 6pm
