Why move to Canterbury?

A medieval cathedral city in the heart of 'The Garden of England', Canterbury has plenty to offer. There are good pubs, great walking, four universities and a whole host of charming little fishing towns right on your doorstep. What's more, the crime rate is incredibly low, approximately half the national average, and the High Speed Rail Link means you can be St Pancras in under an hour, and Paris in just under two.

A little bit of history
Canterbury is an ancient city, but the first real point of note in its history was the 597AD arrival of St Augustine, which also marked the arrival of Christianity in the UK. Surrounded by Roman walls, the city was largely rebuilt in medieval times, with the West Gate being built circa 1380, making it the oldest gate still standing in the UK. The city has a colourful past and has played an important role in British history. In 1170, Thomas Becket, then Archbishop of Canterbury, was murdered here by the king's knights. It's said that the huge Yew tree you can still see in the cathedral's precincts is where the the knights tethered their horses.

Need to know
At over 1,400 years old, The King's School in Canterbury is the oldest school in the world, and is still regarded as one of the best in the country.
