Canterbury is a beautiful cathedral city that lies on the Great Stour River. Due to its history and incredible architecture, it has a real variety of homes: everything from medieval cottages to Victorian terraces, with a few post-war semis in the suburbs too.
With the coast on their doorstep, many residents spend a lot of time at Whitstable or Herne Bay, both of which are around 15 minutes from the town centre. In Canterbury itself, though, the cathedral is a must-visit. The city is brilliantly quaint: a castle, canalways and Tudor black and white buildings make it picture perfect. Although the town is full of history, its student population keeps it current – with plenty of exciting cafes, bars and restaurants to try in your down time.

Locally, Canterbury’s buses are reliable, linking up the smaller satellite villages with the town centre. For those seaside days out, Herne Bay and Whitstable are accessed via a 20-minute bus, but it’s also easy to get to Greenwich and Chatham – perfect for commuters and day-trippers alike.
Canterbury is a small city, and high demand means that property prices range above the national average. The roads before the city walls are popular with families due to their housing stock and proximity to the town centre. Seek out properties on New Dover Road or London Road to find the right place.
