    I will be in the peak district with friends for photographing in June this year. Which one should I use Lee filters or post processing to look better images?

    Certain tweaks may be performed in post-production but others
    only via filters. Tonal taming in a limited extent, DR tweaks, WB,
    are all PP ok. Blur (long exposure effect) and polarisation are not.

    To visit the maker's website is a first step leaning about blockers,
    polarisers and graduated filters.

    If you're reasonably handy with photoshop/elements I think you can get better/as good results with taking 2 (or more) exposures of the same scene. Camera has to be mounted on a tripod and dead still for this though so both pictures are exactly the same (apart from the exposure*). Then blending the two after using a photoshop version of a graduated filter. Doing it that way allows you to set the shape/boundary of the gradation (rather than having it straight across) to follow your horizon/scene and not make for instance, tall trees look unnaturally dark where they project into the shaded top part of the filter.

    *in one shot the sky will look ok and the foreground dark, in the other the foreground wil llook ok and the sky will be very white or blown out.
