Grand Burstin Hotel

Looking not unlike a majestic ocean liner, the Grand Burstin towers over Folkestone’s attractive harbour, with an excellent choice of facilities and a full programme of LIVE CABARET. Take a Break at the Grand Burstin and dine in style, unwind in relaxed surroundings, maybe even enjoy a little light exercise in the Pavilion Leisure Club (additional charges). And for the evenings, perhaps best of all, is the entertainment...renowned as one of the UK’s great entertainment hotels, the Grand Burstin’s resident team put on the glitz and glamour for a different cabaret spectacular every evening.

Cite Europe

Located right next to the Channel Tunnel, Cité Europe is an international shopping centre. Both a seaside shopping centre and an essential tourist stop for those crossing the Channel, Cité Europe has over 120 shops, a Carrefour hypermarket, a 12-screen cinema, a bowling alley and an incomparable “Gourmet City” with about fifteen restaurants.
Designed by architect Paul Andreu as a great arc of light passing through an archway symbolising the tunnel, a real beacon in the landscape of Eurotunnel’s French terminal, Cité Europe provides a moment of relaxation with clear spaces, open to the sky, making it a warm, welcoming and bright place.


Adinkerke is a small village in the municipality of De Panne in western Belgium close to the French border. The small town is a quaint place where you can explore the Belgium countryside or visit the War Cemetery. It also has the unusual claim to fame of having the greatest number of tobacconists per capita of any area in Europe. Here you can buy local chocolate, alcohol, tobacco and other gifts at a very reasonable price.
