we were blessed with good weather and not too crowded a space - we had been recommended to do this walk but acutally just stumbled across it having set off along the beach near Folkestone Harbour. It's great.

This is a really lovely, well tended walk for families, along the way there are many little diversions and lookout points out to sea as well as two play areas age specific. Our kids are 2, 5, 7 & 10 and they all adore this...More

An interesting stroll, quite steep in places and with a biting wind on the wrong day but well worth the effort. Interesting buildings along the top and mostly less impressive artworks. Look out for the Beatles connection on top of a grand hotel. Remember to...More

Rather than driving into the town centre to look for parking spaces why not take the bus to Sandgate and then walk along the sea front, all paved, to the Leas. You can vary the walk by either taking the middle or lower part. There...More

If you go by car either arrive early, or park away from the counrty park and walk. Access by car is difficult, time consuming and exasperating as the only road in is very narrow and parking in the area is limited. Otherwise a great place...More

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

There were dogs on the beach and I think in the park too - might well be 'strictly on leads' policy. I confess we were only humans in our party so didn't read the canine rules carefully (nor at all)!

Hi, I have seen lot's of people using their own BBQ's here so I would assume that you are OK to do so. There are also some fixed BBQ's in the area, but obviously you can't rely on one of these being available. There are lots... More

yes in the coastal park, however the beach is dog free for the summer. (not all of the beach is dog free I think further down in sandgate is OK)
