This area has wonderful views over the coast to France, walk around or have a picnic and if you are really lucky a band will be playing. Just a short walk from the centre of town and kept very clean with lots of seating, walk from the new memorial (2015) away from Folkestone to see the wonderful Grand Hotel in... More

The Leas Promenade is my favourite part of Folkestone, it is extremely well maintained by the local council,on a clear day the views across to France and over Hythe Bay are stunning.There are plenty of places to sit and watch the world go by as well as the lift taking you down to the seafront area.

Must admit Folkestone has grown on me and it's great to see a town with a well kept promenade. Well worth the walk and nice coffee shop (best cake) along the promenade

Lovely walk along this prom on Easter Sunday. The sun was out and lots of families were enjoying this pleasant walk over looking the sea Obviously people have spent time and effort trying to make this walk pleasurable and it certainly shows with well kept grass areas and pretty flowers all along the way We particularly liked the knitted poppies...

Great views and so close to the shops. You can see the new Archway through which the WWI Soldiers departed to fight in France. Unfortunately the ferries no longer leave from Folkestone Harbour but you can travel to France through Eurotunnel.
