Eurotunnel Shuttle - 7.32 miles
Eurotunnel Shuttle (also known as Le Shuttle) is a shuttle service between Calais/Coquelles in France and Folkestone in the UK. It transfers road vehicles through the Channel Tunnel, with passenger vehicles being carried in closed wagons. Roughly half of the train carries cars and other relativly low vehicles in a double-deck system, with the first and last two carriages of the section containing the off-ramps. Coaches, buses and other high vehicles travel in the single deck section, whilst in times of overcrowding cars can also use this area. Budget cuts have meant that Eurotunnel occasionaly run trains at 'half full' - closing the top deck to minimise cost.


Folkestone Centre - 7.97 miles
Folkestone is an elegant and traditional seaside resort, possessing clean, sandy beaches, a wide sweeping promenade. The town is largely a Victorian and Georgian creation, sculpted by the Earl of Radnor, who laid out its elegant parks, crescents and avenues, the most famous of which is ‘The Leas’ – a one mile clifftop promenade walk which offers the visitor unrivalled views of the Channel and the chance to take a ride down to the seafront on the Victorian water-powered Leas Lift. To sum up, Folkestone is a town with much to offer the visitor – windsurfing, sailing, fishing, cycling, swimming, bowling, golf, horse racing at Folkestone Racecourse, excellent shopping on the cobbled Old High Street.
