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

A wonderful well maintained area of flowerbeds, lawns and a pathway along the top of the cliffs. A gently rising walk with wonderful views across and down the channel. The bandstand has music in the summer and there's refreshments provided at the Leas Cliff Hall. Access to the lower road and beach on foot are proved by the restored lift... More

Perfect for a gentle family stroll even on a cold winter day. Sunshine and a lovely sunset helped! Seel out free parking if it's not too busy or if you are early enough as there are plenty of places where you don't have to pay.

This is the perfect place for a walk. The architecture is brilliant, the Victorians really left a positive mark on this area. Great views and easy walking.

We were staying at the Burlington hotel, we walked all along the promenade, with lovely views out to sea. You can walk into the town centre. Their is a lift taking you to the lower promenade. 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.
