It is very close to London and popular with commuters, especially since the high-speed train line opened a few years ago. This as made house prices more expensive, however. There are many pubs and bars in the town center, although there are not good shopping options. Instead, local residents tent to go to the nearby Bluewater shopping centre.

We are lucky to be on the cusp of both a city, being near London, and the countryside as we move further into Kent. It’s also known as the Garden of England. We have great transport links to and from the area, namely the M25 and Eurostar service. Along with these, we also enjoy easy access to facilities such as the Supermarket, Bluewater shopping centre and the coast.
