You could sit here looking out to sea for ever as so calming. Many varied acts are booked. Good customer service as always there to help you.

The cliff top Leas Promenade provides one of the finest maritime promenade walks anywhere. With the Lower Leas and beach on one side and& fine Victorian buildings on the landward side the wide promenade has sections that are completely traffic free. On a clear day the French coast can be seen & the many ships in the Channel provide further... More

We walked along here, first time for about 10 years, if I'm honest, and what a change and for the better! Would recommend fully :-)

Good to stroll along the wide footpaths taking in the views of the sea and the imposing buildings. Not too far from the main shopping area

It's a promenade - you walk along it and can look out to sea, where if the weather is clear you can see the French coast from Cap Gris Nez to Bolougne Sur Mer and the shipping in the channel.

This promenade offers a great view over the channel and is a very pleasant walk. We have been here previously to watch the Folkestone Air Show, but it's a nice place just to take a stroll. At one end, there's the Leas Cliffe Hall and if uou carry on walking past the end of the prom and down the hill,... More

The promenade is a beautiful spot when strolling at any time of year but with the summer coming up I recommend taking in some brass bands as they play the bandstand regularly throughout the summer season. Take a french stick, some pate, cheese, an apple and a couple of bottles of cold beer for a fabulous ad hoc picnic, whilst... More

It`s a shame that Shepway district council have killed this place off. only a few years ago the place was buzzing with bands and other events but now the council simply cant be bothered and sadly the place is dying just like the rest of Folkestone.

Way, way in the past my grandad would 'promade' along the leas in Folkestone. Now I'm an old guy myself I find I also enjoy a lazy walk into town, along a path with views across the channel, you can see France on a clear day. I suppose it also helps excersise but if you end it with tea and... More
