Walking Social: Folkestone to Dover

August 31, 2019 @ 9:34 am - 5:00 pm

Folkestone Central to Dover is a lovely long walk along the coastline including seafood food trucks, concrete world war II installations and chalk cliffs that we’re not allowed to climb – for good reason!
The aim is to go via The Warren which will give us the opportunity to walk along the Edwardian concrete platforms at the beach, over the old railway and up through dense trees to the Cliff Top Cafe for Lunch. This is the only serious incline of the route. The tide and weather may change this.
Please let me know if you’re coming – I’ll need to know who wants to come so I know who to wait for: socialsec@themmc.org.uk
Distance: Approx. 8-10 miles. The lesser number if we decide we’d rather find a pub than go for more exploration once we get into Dover.
Time & Route:
09:34 from St Pancras International to Dover Priory for 10:41. Usually Platform 11 or 12. We recommend a return ticket, but please feel free to choose otherwise.
The Folkestone Central stop is at 10:30.
This is the fast service (~ 1 hour), all other services take ~ 2 hours.
The tide might determine that we have to leave the station soon after arrival but if we’re expecting you, we’ll wait of course! We could aim for the train at 08:37 if there is popular demand for an earlier start.
Time we get into Dover: Around 17:00 based on a casual strolling pace and a lunch stop at the cafe. Earlier most likely!
