If you are looking to make a move to a truly magical and affordable place to live in southeast England, then look no further than Canterbury. Famous for its association with The Canterbury Tales, its massive cathedral and its UNESCO World Heritage listed medieval city centre, thousands of young families, students, couples and commuters have decided to make the move and rent a home in this peaceful hamlet.
Is Canterbury the place for you? Read ahead to find out more about why a move to Canterbury just makes sense.
Located on the River Stour, Canterbury is in the county of Kent, often known as the Garden of England. Located just 6 miles from the coast, it benefits from a moderate climate and a relaxed atmosphere.
Trains run directly from Canterbury West Station and the main station to London, and many people choose to work in the capital while enjoying a more laid back lifestyle in the country. The journey takes less than one hour, making this a perfect commuter town.
Canterbury is home to thousands of students from all of the world, living in the area because of its proximity to many university campuses, including the University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University, the University for the Creative Arts, and the Girne American University Canterbury campus. The city is home to many landlords who are keen to welcome students into their flats and properties at very good rental rates.
• A close knit community – Boasting a small population of only 55, 000, in many ways Canterbury retains all of the positives of small town living while benefiting from its international reputation as a world class tourist attraction.
• You will never run out of things to do – As a UNESCO listed city, Canterbury has dozens of museums, heritage sites and attractions that will keep you and your family busy and entertained on rainy days and sunny days alike.
• Plenty of available homes – If you are frustrated by the lack of homes in London, Canterbury is the best choice for you. The area is known for top notch, highly rated letting agents that are happy to help you find the home or flat of your dreams.
• You are close to the sea – Fancy a steamed crab, some fresh oysters or a frolic in the waves? Living in Canterbury is a brilliant choice for anyone who loves the ocean and spending days at the beach in the summer.
If you are considering making the move to Canterbury, now is the best time. This vibrant small town is quickly increasing in desirability, so it makes sense to get ahead of the crowd and move in soon.
