Evening Stroll

This made a very pleasant evening stroll, we climbed the steps to the Leas Promenade & made it a round trip. Lovely views, very clean. Give it a try.

Beautiful gardens with cliffs and rocks, quite steep in areas. Has places for picnics and basic. Lovely views and a great safe place for the kids to run around.

We throughly enjoyed our visit to Lower Leas Coastal Park. The last time we were in Folkestone was in the early 1990's and we remembered the area as a quite rough. Consequently we were amazed to find that the area was well kept with many families out for a walk. The planting were well maintained and varied. The playground areas... More

Spent the best part of a day exploring the coastal park and beach. The play park was amazing and the gardens were lovely. Took a trip up the funicular railway to get fish and chips for lunch and returned to the park for the afternoon.

Love the planting in this garden through the seasons; great for families and groups who would like a bbq as there are tables suitable for portable bbqs. All beside the sea, an added bonus!

I love what they have done with the old toll road. What a beautifully kept place. Lovely when the seaside is too windy as it's slightly sheltered from the strong winds and crashing waves! There's a park for the children that is really popular on sunny days as well as the ice cream van that makes appearances! A lovely treat... More

This is a pleasant walk with almost a tropical feel to it because off the varied plants on route. It is well maintained and suitable for disabled people too. If you are looking for activity though this is not the place for you but for general chilling out or a picnic it's the place to be. The sea is alongside... More

Windy, grey, typical English weather. A breath of fresh air. Pebbly beach, difficult to walk along, not too much rubbish and a friendly ice cream man.

Gentle, very British feel to walks. Quiet, well laid out, safe and family friendly. Enough to keep young children amused and also good for mature walkers. Not hilly.
