There are the most wonderful views from the Leas, a super walk if you go from one end to the other, but just as good if you only manage half of this. Tons of places to sit and rest on the way. Highly recommended

A colourful walk past clean beach huts & green park land. The promenade & beach were both very clean.

If you're visiting Folkestone then the Leas is a must. It is a great place to walk or cycle with stunning views of the English Channel. It is very well looked after with lovely landscape gardening and many benches all along the promenade.

Feels like stepping back into the 20's it's so lovely up there, overlooking the sea and beach on one side, on the other the amazing old buildings of the Grand and the Metropole amongst many many others.
