Folkestone Ferry Port Information
Folkestone is rich in history with excavations revealing the ruins of a Roman villa dating from c100AD to it's long relationship with smugglers. The Romans viewed Folkestone as a strategic lookout point and signalling post as it does not have a river or harbour deep enough for large ships. It became a popular seaside resort partly due to the advent of cross channel ferry services but also suffered from the decline and eventual closure as cross channel ferry services suffered severe competition from the neighbouring port Dover.
