Our Environment


Our level 1 training programme is held at the Chichester Memorial Hall in Sandgate.  The Tamalpa UK office is based in Folkestone.

Tamalpa UK was established right in the heart of Folkestone’s Creative Quarter in Kent in 2012.  Tamalpa UK is ideally located amongst leaders in the field of culture and wellbeing and aims to be a valuable contribution to the diversity and creativity of the area.

Folkestone is a burgeoning seaside town ~ the Creative Quarter is a dynamic and colourful part of the old town that is being developed by the Creative Foundation, (a charity launched in 2002 to regenerate Folkestone through the arts, the creative industries and education). The Creative Quarter has become home to a thriving collection of studios and businesses and through the ongoing development in the creative arts is helping to put Folkestone on the map in the UK as the South East’s melting pot and beacon for all things creative. Whilst located in an urban environment, the studio is only 1 min from the sea and 10mins from stunning landscaped and natural costal parks that are both nourishing and rejuvenating.

There is a growing holistic and music scene in the town and within the next couple of years a major harbour development will commence to transform the seafront into a hub for water and beach sports. Tamalpa UK is joining a progressive environment of like minded, spirited souls dedicated to creating positive change, creative communities and healthy social change through the arts.

Folkestone has strong transport links: 55mins from London St Pancras on the high speed rail link, M20 provides fast road links. Easy links to Europe via the Euro tunnel and Eurostar.
