Whether you consider yourself an art buff or a total novice we have a tour to suit you, your friends and your family. 

If you don't know where to start with the Folkestone Triennial could join one of our guided tours and get to know a selection of artworks. Or you could try out one of our alternative tours that will help you to enjoy artworks in new and interesting ways from drawing to running. 

If you want to really get under the skin of the artworks you could try a Critics Tour or inspire the next generation with a parent and baby tour. There is something for everyone. 

All of the tours are free but booking is essential. Tours will start from Quarterhouse unless otherwise stated.
