The Leas

The Leas is Folkestone's unique clifftop promenade. 

Designed in the mid 1800's by Decimus Burton who also worked on buildings and gardens at London Zoo and Kew Gardens,  it includes magnificent buildings, squares and gardens. 

There is a bandstand where events take place during the Summer. 

Below The Leas is the Lower Leas Coastal Park which includes walking/cycling trails, an amphitheatre and a large children’s play area. 

To get from The Leas to sea level there are a number of walking routes or alternatively , take a ride on on the Leas Lift.
