Beautiful area of Folkestone. On one side the sea with amazing views of France. On the other side great Edwardian Architecture with beautiful streets (Clifton Crescent, Earls Avenue), the two imposing Metropole and Grand Hotels. Beautiful houses too towards the end of the leas and you can carry on till Sandgate ( H G Wells old house) and come back... More

I liked the footpath. It has nice views over the English Channel to France. It is walked by many people in the day time. I am not sure I would want to be out there at night. I met good people there

went for a walk along the leas, stopped at a café , ordered coffee sat outside. A rat ran past me into the café, having a huge fear of them made me want to leave, a local told me that they hang around the bins all time and was not unusual . I left in a hurry not for me

The local council have done a great job in making this a very pleasant walk. New statue to commemorate the 1st world war is something no one should miss. The flower beds are a treat. What a wonderful way to spend a sunny afternoon.

The Leas was great. First time we have visited and walked the length. I would prefer a better choice of cafes for a rest and drink

We walked along the promenade which was very nice it has the band stand situated in the middle and when you get to the end you come across this massive silver arch which is like a little memorial area dedicated to soldiers in ww1 and leads towards remembrance road .

Lovely stroll along the Victorian Zigzag path down to the gardens. There are lots of information boards giving an insight to the history of how the promenade was built and used.
