The walk along the Lees Promenade is relaxing and enjoyable. The buildings have been kept to a good standard long the walk and the Grand Hotel shows how it must have been in Victorian times. The bandstand has different events throughout the summer and there is a small cafe to stop for a drink. It is beautifully kept and clean... More

There was nothing there, no nice restaurants or bars, very dated and slightly daunting? Couldnt wait to leave?

From the Burlington Hotel it is a pleasant walk along the Leas to the town centre. Beautifully maintained gardens and views over the Lower Leas and the Port. Views of French coast and Calais are possible on a clear day.

The Leas is a flat promenade high up above the English Channel with great views across to the French coast on a clear day. It has many beautiful flower bed displays and a band stand which hosts performances at the weekends in the summer months. My mother walks there every day and never tires of it.

Great views over Channel on this long promenade. Nice walk with few chances to go down the cliff to enjoy Lower Leas Coastal Park (for some reason "Path closed" signs on most of them...). Lots of parking spaces on parallel road - separated by stretch of grass.
