Why move to Canterbury?
As well as fantastic schools and high-speed commuter links to the capital, Canterbury is the perfect middle ground for those who can’t decide between country living, a home by the sea or the bustle of the city.
There’s also plenty to do with UNESCO World Heritage Sites, country walks and plenty of shops right on your doorstep.
The area offers an abundance of homes from detached properties to new-build flats, Georgian townhouses and idyllic terraces.
The average house price in Canterbury and in 20 miles of the city, over the last 12 months is £560,000.
