After a morning inside a museum, then lunch we needed a brisk walk and the leas promenade is perfect. Fairly flat, nice properties and lovely range of summer flowers.

Pleasant place for a walk. The sea is light blue and clear across the waters to France. The man made beach features are eye catching. There's also ice cream vans, brass bands, old Victorian buildings, etc.

Several miles of easy walking, plenty of seating, great views, dogs allowed on lead. A lot of history; bandstand, war memorial and the Leas Lift. Information boards and maps showing your progress at regular intervals. Plenty of clean public loos.

I like to use our promenade for running and walking and for quiet when I want to be away from the traffic and other people and just need peace and quiet. I like ti because it is very well maintained and is very pretty and you can see the sea to.
