Folkestone in 50 Buildings

    By

    From its heyday as a Victorian seaside resort to its role as a major departure and arrival point for cross-channel travel, Folkestone has a proud and distinctive identity. This extraordinary history is embodied in the buildings that have shaped the town. Folkestone in 50 Buildings explores the history of this rich and vibrant community through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the magnificent century-old Grand Hotel to the stunning new Rocksalt Restaurant, part of the ongoing regeneration of its famous seafront and harbour, this unique study celebrates the town's architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Well-known local author Paul Harris guides the reader on a tour of the city's historic buildings and modern architectural marvels.
