Alexandra Corniche is a small and exclusive development, situated on the hillside above Sandgate and overlooking the English Channel, approximately 2½ miles from both the ancient Cinque Ports Town of Hythe and the larger town of Folkestone. There is an excellent primary school (Outstanding Ofsted Report) within only a short walk and also Brockhill Performing Arts College in Hythe and two highly regarded Grammar Schools in Folkestone, all with a regular bus service.

The area is fortunate in having particularly good communications as there are main line railway stations within easy reach and an access point for the M20 motorway (Junction 12) only 2 miles away, making it possible to reach Central London within about 1½ hours by both road and in less than an hour by rail. The High Speed Rail Link offers a journey time to the City of just under an hour and is available from Folkestone West & Central and also Ashford Stations. The Channel Tunnel Terminal, with regular shuttle services to the Continent, is just over two miles away and Ashford International Passenger Terminal with Eurostar services to Paris & Brussels is only 20 minutes by car.
