It was November when we visited and a cold weekend however well wrapped up we walked all along the prom. Plenty of dog walkers... More

Situated right in front of View Hotel along the Leas. It will be great during the summer while relaxing and watching the sun set at the same time.

What makes it special is the palm trees on both sides of the road. Could do with a little smartening up, although work seemed to be underway on the beachfront. Parking available but there are pay and display machines. Great for walking though.

The view from the area is quite stunning. Must be a great place to visit in the summer. From this area you can see the pier and beaches.

A nice place to walk as many people have enjoyed for years. At one end there is the historical guest houses and two huge renovated Victorian/Edwardian hotels ( which are apartments now). The town end now has the 1st world war memorial arch.

The Leas promenade is great for walking with great views of the sea. Very popular with walkers and joggers but plenty room for everyone. You can go from the harbor area at one end and walk all the way to Sandgate if you are feeling energetic along this route.

On a sunny late September Sunday we took a walk along Leas Promenade, taking in the bandstand mid-renovation and the memorial arch with its associated arty poppies. Cafes and restaurants available along the way and a destination of Folkestone Harbour, arrived at by plenty of spaced steps. There is a lift down for less energetic or disabled users, and also...

Clean and tidy with pleasant views. Good for a lunchtime stroll and a sandwich lunch. The arch war memorial and surrounding is impressive.

I visited the Leas Promenade with my family in September 2016. It runs alongside the beach from Folkestone Harbour. It is a pleasant walk with plenty of steps down to the beach. Some toilets would have been handy though. Not too strenuous. Highlight was seeing some locals wearing horses heads. Recommended.
