Lovely for a walk

A lovely area to walk, wide paths and beautiful flowerbeds. There is plenty of seating to rest and people watch or enjoy the view of the coastline and the sea.

Gloriously sunny and warm day for March; a perfect accompaniment to stretch your legs in this beautiful part of the world. Flowers coming into bloom, lawns Mowbray and cherry trees in bloom. It's as if there is a microclimate here. Thoroughly rewarding experience.

A long climb down to the beach but a very typically English high promenade to take a leisurely stroll along. Loved the Memorial Arch, really thought provoking.

Lovely place for just walking and getting fresh air and a sea breeze. Great views over the channel on a good day.

The Leas is a really beautiful place to visit when it is sunny. You can see France easily and it is very close to the beach.

The views are tremendous out to sea as the council have recently trimmed the trees. The buildings from the 19th century heyday of this are are wonderful. Worth a visit to the Grand Hotel for an old fashioned afternoon tea. Quality food and drink.

The Leas Promenade is famous landmark in Folkestone, you can take your time to take in the views whilst you walk, the sea views, the well presented flower beds, the Leas bandstand, there is a little theatre with local productions and the well presented cafe. Its worthwhile attraction on any day, no matter the weather

I live very nearby, so this is ideal for a short stroll or as a traffic free route to town. Flower beds are well planted by the local council gardeners... then there are the Leas Bandstand, Leas Cliff Hall with Cafe and regular shows, and lastly, the sea views...

Nothing could be finer than a stroll along the Leas, admire the bandstand hear the waves breaking on the shoreline beautiful views over the channel, watch the ships and see France on a clear day. Afterward have a high tea innthe Grand or coffee in the Old high street.
