Clifton Crescent is a sought after location between Sandgate Road and The Leas Promenade in Folkestone's sought after West End, just a short level walk from the town centre and from Folkestone Central/West Stations where the High Speed Link to London, St Pancras is available (journey times of under an hour). Madeira Court backs directly onto the picturesque Leas Promenade from where access can be gained to the coastal path at the foot of The Leas which can be followed all the way to Folkestone Harbour with the recently revitalised "Harbour Arm" with champagne bar, restaurants, cafes and live music. The vibrant village of Sandgate with its eclectic mix of village store, antiques shops, boutiques, public houses, cafes and restaurants is a little further where the long stretches of shingle beach and sailing club can be found by meandering down one of the pretty lanes or alleyways from the high street. The Cinque Ports Town of Hythe with its bustling High street and Waitrose, is approximately 5 miles away to the west.

There is a variety of sporting facilities available along the coast, including rowing and sailing clubs, cricket, squash and bowls clubs.
