We start with a local departure and travel south to Folkestone, where accommodation is reserved at the Grand Burstin Hotel, set on the harbourside. The hotel buzzes with activity. There is a cabaret room with large dancefloor and nightly live shows. Leisure club with an indoor swimming pool etc. (Some facilities chargeable).
You can relax in the hotel or join our included excursions:
