Indoor Activities in Folkestone

When you’re planning to head out for the day and realise that the weather’s taking a turn for the worse, it can be a real struggle to know what to do! You might’ve planned a day of outdoor activities that have now definitely lost their appeal or find yourself at a loss for anywhere to go that’s indoors.

Luckily for you, we’ve put together this handy little guide of things to do in Folkestone on a rainy day. Whether it’s just you, you’ve got kids in tow or you were planning to spend a romantic day with your other half, we’ve got you covered!

Head to Hollywood

The Silver Screen Cinema on Folkestone High Street is the perfect place to take shelter from horrible weather. With all the best in the latest releases and critically acclaimed films that you won’t find on in many other cinemas, there’s something for everyone here. The interior is also absolutely gorgeous and oozes timeless luxury – we highly recommend it!

Kidz Planet

If you’ve got the challenge of entertaining little ones on a rainy day, we know how tough it can be to find something for them to do. Luckily, Folkestone is home to Kidz Planet – a super fun play centre where your kids can run around and let off steam. With separate areas for all ages and even rides indoors, you won’t have to worry about your children getting bored.

Take a Dive

If you’re the athletic kind, you could head to Folkestone’s indoor swimming pool and practice your breast stroke, front crawl and butterfly. You can also take advantage of their sports facilities, including a gym and plenty of group classes. Get fit and skip the dreary weather all at once!

Go into Battle

If you’re a lover of history – and in particular British history – head to the Battle of Britain Museum in Kent. With an extensive collection of real memorabilia and a whole lot of great information to absorb, a day out here passes by in a flash. There’s a café, too, so you can stop for a bit of cake if you get peckish!

Wine and Dine

Is there a better way to shelter from horrible weather than by retreating into a warm, welcoming restaurant and settling down for a spot of fine dining? We don’t think so. You can while away a few hours enjoying delicious cuisine, a couple of glasses of wine and plenty of good conversation.

At The Marquis, we offer a luxury dining experience that’ll make you forget all about the bad weather! We also have a range of exquisite rooms available so you don’t have to worry about travelling home in gale force winds, letting you really enjoy yourself and end your day in a luxury fashion. What could be better than that?
