The local area
Canterbury is a picturesque spot that retains a small town feel despite having one of Kent’s most thriving economies. With the River Stour running through town and endless miles of countryside surrounding it, Canterbury is the perfect place to live if you want to live somewhere that retains an old world market town feel yet has plenty of modern amenities. There’s even a bohemian flavour to the northern quarter, where you’ll find plenty of quirky shops and inviting bars, cafes and restaurants.
The close proximity to the coast is another of Canterbury’s major draws, as it’s only around seven miles to seaside spots such as Whitstable. Margate, Dover and Folkestone are all close by, with a good network of A roads if you have a car. It’s also just under 60 miles to London, with trains to the capital taking less than an hour. If you live near Canterbury West and work close to St Pancras station, then the commute is very much doable on a daily basis.
Families will be pleased to learn that there are some highly rated schools in the area, including St Peter’s Methodist Primary, Wickhambreaux CofE and Wingham Primary for younger children. Options at secondary level include Barton Court Grammar, the Simon Langton Grammar Schools for Boys and Girls, and the Canterbury Academy on Knight Avenue. There are also four universities with a presence in town, including the University of Kent.
