The Upper and Lower leas are a highlight of Folkestone, plus they are free. Lots of fun activities and climbing structures for younger children. Wonderful gardens and trees. On a clear day you can see France across the Chanel.

We were staying next to the park during our stay and enjoyed having a stroll through the park/along the beach every day. Very peaceful and great that it's by the sea

Stunning walk along The Leas. An absolute must, beautiful views over the beach and a lovely walk down the zig zag path at the bandstand to the beach.
