Why MoveTo Kent?
by Sam Jaction
If you don't fancy renting a place in London because of the hustle and bustle of the capital but need to live close due to work commitments or schools, then Kent should be the county at the top of your priority list. The county's transport links with the capital, alongside its quaint period-esque beauty, makes it one of the perfect places for renting.
The county's primary transport links are the M20 and M2 motorways alongside high-speed rail services, which can offer a reasonable 40-minute to 1-hour journey to the capital from Canterbury. In addition, its bus links offer transportation to the most rural areas of Kent, as well as various city centres.
If easy travel to London doesn't whet your whistle, then how about East Kent offering the best access to France? Dover, famous for it's White Cliffs, is the closest point of the UK to the rest of Europe, with many Cross Channel ferries offering up regular travel across the sea.
Furthermore, it's also a haven for businesses looking to set up close, but not inside, London. Office and commercial space tends to be 60 per cent lower in price than in London, making it a cost-effective way of remaining close to the capital.
The county is also home to a number of letting agents. Kent, as you can tell, is a very popular place to live so there is no shortage of affordable housing to rent for those eyeing up a property. Large rural family properties are in high demand, along with city centre flats, but there is plenty more housing to choose from, too. Beachfront properties are also very desirable for obvious reasons - their location to the beach!
It's easy to see why more and more people are moving to Kent. It's proximity to London and France, alongside its beautiful rural areas and bustling city centres make it one of the most popular counties in the UK.
