Removals Finder 3 best places to move in Kent
Kent is a pretty big place, with many different towns and cities, and an absolute abundance of countryside. This throws up a massive question for potential buyers in the county: where exactly should you choose to purchase your next property? From the historic city of Canterbury through to the Medway towns with their close proximity to London, we examine the three best places to move to in the Garden of England…
Canterbury is regarded as the jewel in the crown of Kent, as it is one of the most historic cities in the country. Those looking to move to Kent won’t simply be swayed by history though – they need more. And Canterbury can offer this. It has some of the best schools in the county, two universities, a great town centre and easy access to major connections. If you are moving to Kent, there’s no way you can ignore this city…
Medway is made up of three towns – Chatham, Rochester and Gillingham – as well as various other smaller towns and villages. While it isn’t the most glamorous of places, it has something that many other places can’t offer, namely incredibly easy access to London. This means that those looking to move away from the capital but still work there find Medway to be a great choice. Those who want to live in the countryside are well served here too.
If you are looking for somewhere affordable, but that still offers a good quality of life, Ashford is the perfect choice. A semi-detached property can be bought for around £200,000 here, which is pretty good value for a place that’s located directly on the commuter belt. Like the rest of Kent, it also has some really good schools, plus it’s home to a large retail complex, which is visited by people from throughout Kent. It might not be the most attractive place initially, but once you look closer moving to Ashford really starts to make sense.
