About Folkestone

On a clear day in Folkestone, you can see across the straight of Dover to France and so it is no suprise that the town developed because of transport. For most of the 19th and 20th Centuries it was an important passenger and freight port, but with the decline of several routes to France, and the arrival of the Channel Tunnel, the port closed in the year 2000. Today, an average of 57,000 passengers per day pass through the Channel Tunnel, with 10.6 million people travelling on Eurotunnel Shuttles and 10 million on board the high-speed passenger train service each year. In 2017 Eurotunnel carried the 25 Millionth truck to use it's service since it began.
