THANET - A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE!
Apart from our fantastic, beautiful coastline and the diverse array of lifestyle choices, the main attraction to Thanet is its location in relation to the rest of Kent, London, Europe and beyond. Thanet is just over an hour’s drive from the outskirts of London and the high speed rail link from London to Ramsgate takes around 70 minutes at peak times. Europe is just a channel hop away by ferry from Dover, via the Eurotunnel in Folkestone or by Eurostar from nearby Ashford International station.
Another great thing about Thanet - there’s more money left for ‘living’ - the price of a detached home is approximately 20% lower than the national average and around 50% cheaper than London.
The District is surrounded by beautiful coastline, which includes coastal areas of international importance, including the nature reserve at Pegwell Bay - home to a large breeding colony of common seals.
The beaches are ideal for a range of water sports from sailing, jet skiing to kite surfing and the 28-mile circular Viking Coastal Trail is one of the most attractive leisure cycle routes in Kent, taking in the spectacular coastline and quiet country villages.
At its heart, near the quintessential seaside town of Broadstairs, Thanet has the Westwood Cross shopping centre that combines retail, leisure and dining in one place - incorporating a state of the art shopping complex, a 10 screen multiplex cinema, Mecca Bingo and major names from the restaurant world.
Thanet - what’s not to love?
