Kent is close enough to London to be a popular commuter area, with good road and rail links and Eurostar line to the continent, which has major stations at Ashford and Ebbsfleet, as well as the road vehicle terminal at Folkestone. Families are moving out from London and relocating to the many towns and villages where there is a huge selection of new homes.
Popular places for new build include Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells, Canterbury, Ashford, Dartford, Sevenoaks and Gravesend. However, there are numerous new developments throughout the county from city to coast providing a range of homes to suit different buyer needs.
Well served by the motorway network of the M2, M20 and A2, Kent is easily accessible from London. Services run by Southeastern trains travel through Kent and onto the coast. There are also High Speed services connecting Ashford with St Pancras in 38 minutes.
There are four universities and 14,000 graduates a year enter the workforce with this being a major draw for business and industry in the area.
