Good views on a nice day. Steep access to the beach or use the lift. Many happy family days spent strolling along the Leas with a coffee for warmth in the winter. Parking is best off peak and popular with locals.

The over cliff esplanade is very handsome. Worth walking to see the rival Grand and Metropole hotels and then cutting down to the under cliff promenade.

Walking along the Leas takes you back to the old world. The Victorians certainly built beautiful structures that we can still enjoy today. The sea views are wonderful.

The leas has been well kept and is a pleasent walk in the afternoon. It was great to see the bandstand continues to be used for entertainment. Spend some time looking at the magnificent views from various points along the way.

the promenade was flat and clean,on a good day the kids could play on the beach,the was residents riding bikes a lot the promenade,no dogs was allowed on the promenade in summer months which is a good thing as dogs mess the pavements up and owners never clean it up.

We took a beautiful stroll along the leas and then walked down the cliff towards the beach. On the way down we passed some beautiful planted areas and play areas for children. At the bottom we found a lovely seafront cafe called the mermaid. The food here was delicious as were thd cakes/tartlets/ice cream. They also offer a good line... More

This is a glorious walk along the cliff top. You have superb views out to see and the houses behind are a lovely back drop.
