Lovely

Super views of the coast! You can even see France on a clear day. Love our family walks along the leas. So many things to do during the summer months.

Now you have a wonderful Panoramic view of the Channel and it looks fantastic , before you could hardly see the sea at... More

Love the views of the sea, over to France and round the coast to Dungeness. Plenty of seating to sit and while away the time. In the summer great to listen to bands playing at The Bandstand.

We visited Leas Promenade on the same day, 13th Feburary, as our walk down the coastal path. Really nice walk with super views. We're new to this area so we took in the lovely architecture of the Leas and finished with a lunchtime snack in the Leas Cliff Hall. It all seems to happen there! The lower level is a... More

This is a taste of England at its traditional best. For over a century people have strolled along this beautiful lawned downs with views of the English Channel. The Leas is also overlooked by some incredibly grand old houses and hotels. Very enjoyable even on a wintry day but at it's best in the sun or during the annual air... More

You must walk the whole length of the Leas to gain the Edwardian feeling of this area. From the fabulous Band Stand and the Leas Cliff Hall to the Water driven Leas lift. Another must site to visit in Folkestone.

This has to be one of the best walks in Kent. Highly recommended. The leas overlook the Channel on a clear day you can see France from the Leas. The flower beds are very well kept and there are many benches to sit on. Perfect for a picnic on a nice day.

In it's seaside holiday hey days Folkestone must have burned quite brightly. But these days it's a shell of it former self. The Leas Promenade is quaint and takes you back to a time when it had probably seen better days. It's was a nice walk down to the beach. Scenic and peaceful.
