Enjoy the optimum quality of life in Kent
Better living, more for your money
More than ever, employees are prepared to sacrifice a London postcode for more space and lower rents. In Kent, there is no compromise when it comes quality of life.
The county is one of the best connected in the country – a short hop from London and Europe by rail – and boasts house prices around 33% cheaper than London.
And with stunning countryside, creative coastal communities, vibrant towns and cities and a renowned cultural scene, Kent can offer the complete package to businesses and their employees.
Kent is steeped in history, and its historic landmarks attract 65million visitors every year. Its thriving visitor economy in turn fuels an incredible food and drink scene and hospitality sector, and brings in new investment from leading cultural business on a regular basis.
Medway is currently in the running to become the next City of Culture, and the county is also part of Thames Estuary Production Corridor, which is set to become one of the UK’s largest creative production hubs in the next decade.
The immense beauty of Kent’s countryside offers peace and relaxation, but you’ll never feel far from the bustle of culture-rich and diverse hubs such as Canterbury, Tunbridge Wells, Deal and Folkestone. Margate is one of the UK’s most popular destinations, home to a huge artistic community of ex-Londoners and the town’s Turner Contemporary gallery was the host venue of the Turner Prize 2019.
Living in Kent offers more than just a new way of life. With the average residential property price approximately 33% cheaper than London, you and your workforce can afford to put down roots but not compromise on excellent employment or access to the city when needed.
Education for the next generation
Kent is a great place for families to thrive too. Voted the top family destination in Europe by Lonely Planet, Kent has plenty to entertain the children and a wealth of outstanding schools to choose from. With specialist childcare facilities, exemplary primary schools and 23% of the UK’s grammar schools located in the county, children and young people are offered the best educational start in life.
