What a place to live and work

The transport links to and from London and the continent are fantastic, but, simply put, you won’t want to leave the Garden of England. We are a family-friendly county with first class state and independent schools and affordable housing. The average house price is here £360,000, so you get a lot of brick (and green space) for your buck compared to neighbouring regions.

Whitstable and Deal have been voted two of the best places to live in the country with their vibrant high streets and incredible eateries. Margate and Folkestone are now world-class uber cool art destinations. We have the best collection of pubs, a heritage of brewing that is continuing with microbreweries, gin distilleries and vineyards offering gold medal refreshment.

We have breathtaking castles, cathedrals and country houses bursting with history plus the mighty Bluewater shopping centre and a plethora of further choices for retail activities. There is a wealth of activities to keep little ones occupied and then you have the 350 miles of beaches, cliffs and coves; a coastline that is both stunning and stimulating, whatever the weather.

Once you have been wild swimming in Bewl Water, mountain-biked the muddy Bedgebury Pinetum, kite-surfed off Herne Bay or walked the windswept bird sanctuary of Dungeness or the resplendent Kent Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you might just give up the gym membership for good.

Your health and wellbeing and that of your family is as important to us as that of our service users and those who matter to them.
