A surprisingly pleasant walk with good views and 2 "celebrity" houses along the way - Baden Powell and H.G.Wells. Then caught the bus back into Folkestone from Sandgate.

If you visit Folkestone do save time to walk along the Leas Promenade which has been beautifully restored and gives walkers an excellent view of the English Channel.

Edwardian splendour! We love a walk along the Leas with a great view of the sea below and the fascinating architecture of the Edwardian Metropole, Grand and Clifton Crescent, combined with a zig zag down the beach. A great way to take the air!

Nice area to walk around, well maintained flower beds and great examples of Victorian architecture, you can really get a feel for how this seaside resort would have been 100 years ago. There are stunning views across the channel, and the promenade is not far...More

The Leas are still fairly well maintained and provide a 'victorian' style promenade above the cliffs of Folkestone. Good views of the sea and towards France. Nice flower beds. lawns and tarmac pathway and plenty of room to saunter
