What is it like living in Kent?

Whilst there might be some travel between sites, the majority of the time would be spent at your base site in Margate. Margate is an iconic seaside town with a rich historic and cultural heritage.

In the past decade, Margate has enjoyed a great deal of investment, making it a cool, hip, and vibrant place to live. Flocks of ex-Londoners are currently heading to Margate in their droves, with homebuyers from further afield also keen to join the party. With a real arty feel to the area, quirky streets, expansive coastal views, a stunning sandy beach and impressive housing options, Margate is a real winner for young professionals, couples or retirees looking for a new lifestyle.

Margate has its own train station operated by South-eastern Trains. The station is well-equipped and runs regular services to London St Pancras and Victoria, both of which take between one hour to an hour and a half. The station also offers routes to many of Kent’s major destinations as well as both Ashford and Dover (via Ramsgate).

Properties in Margate had an overall average price of £290,320 over the last year. The majority of sales in Margate during the last year were terraced properties, selling for an average price of £284,036. Flats sold for an average of £157,869, with semi-detached properties fetching £354,535.

If you want to look outside of a seaside town, you could easily live in Ashford, Kent or Canterbury and commute to work.
