The Home Counties of Surrey and Kent, immediately south of London, both embracing the prominent and picturesque North Downs, provide some of the most attractive countryside, towns and villages in England, with Kent also being known as the Garden of England.
Residents enjoy some of the best and quickest transport links into and out of London, to the rest of England, to London Airports (Gatwick and Heathrow in particular) and to the continent via Kent ports, Eurostar and Eurotunnel.
High quality state and independent schools (the selective state grammar school system is still retained in Kent) are spread throughout the region with good, accessible shopping, cultural, leisure and other amenities.
Some of the finest, both historic and more contemporary property, can be found here. You will be hard pressed to beat the multitude of benefits that renting or buying in Surrey and Kent has to offer, whatever your budget.
