The Creative Quarter is the ideal place to wander, window shop, stop for a drink or bite to eat and for those visitors who wish to purchase something unique. At its heart is the cultural centre, the Quarterhouse, which is a showcase for performances of all kinds from drama to music as well as film screenings.

The former ferry terminal and its mid-19th century buildings are another part of the town which has been successfully rejuvenated. The Harbour Arm is now a public pier and a popular area for food, drinks and entertainment.

As well as being able to eat fresh fish and seafood overlooking the fishing harbour where they were caught, visitors can also choose between different types of ethnic cuisine. They might prefer to have a drink admiring the view along the coast where the White Cliffs are visible or looking across the English Channel to France.

Music events are regularly held at the Harbour Arm, especially in summer. There is also a Farmers’ Market selling local produce from Kent, which is aptly called ‘the Garden of England’.
