This area is a lovely place to walk, especially on a sunny day. A walk along the Prom affords lovely sea views to one side and some beautiful Victorian building on the other. There are also a number of points to access the cliff paths which lead down to the beach via some beautiful gardens. Well worth a walk.

We are always being told that local councils are cutting back on their responsibilities to their parks and gardens. That certainly isn't the case with The Leas on the front at Folkestone. The beds are full of spring flowers, the grass is mown and the bandstand is in good condition. So many old English seaside resorts look sad these days... More

I have to say I was extremely proud of our town this weekend. My son and wife came to visit and stayed in the View Hotel overlooking the Leas. The new owners who have spent a vast amount of money should be commended but also the Environment Department for the fantastic flower beds, I think the person who designed the... More

If its a nice day then this is a wonderful walk incorporating sea views and points of interest including two historic nineteenth century hotels (The Grand and the New Metropole) and Baden-Powells house in Folkestone as well as a Martello Tower with an art installation. There are also open grassy areas ideal for picnicking. The walk back into town is... More

We walked along the promenade to the town centre, which is a gentle sloping walk. Along the way there are speakers under some benches with some information and recordings of letters from soldiers from the first/second wars.

Lovely walk into town along the sea front, great views, you can follow the zig zag path down to the harbour and walk back up through old town.

The Leas Promenade on top of the coastal park is a wonderful place for walk, a gentle jog, a leisurely bike ride or a simple picnic on the grass. The promenade is about a mile long with ample benches, large grass areas, a nice bandstand, fantastic views over the Channel and a Tarmac pavement running its entire length. There is... More

Stunning views of Mediterranean blue seas, with hardly a breathe of air. Just like being abroad but only 55misn from London St Pancras.

You have lovely walks along the Leas either from the top of the cliff or make your way down the windy steep pathway to the shore line with many attractions on the way.. You can barbecue, and their is slides etc for the children.
