Our county features in the popular Sunday Times list

Kent has bagged two spots in the renowned Sunday Times Best Places to Live list.

Sevenoaks and Canterbury were revealed as the favourite Kentish Nirvanas which made it into the South East section of the feature.

Published this Sunday, March 17, the comprehensive list takes a wide range of elements into account including transport links, quality of schools, natural beauty, low crime rate, property prices, cultural life and unemployment figures.

Each area is also assessed on its own individual assets, whether it is a local festival, fascinating architecture or proximity to an airport.

Sunday Times associate editor Eleanor Mills said: “Scampering around Britain for my column I find there are particular bits of our crowded island which always retain a particular attraction for people. We have built on this basic information to create a definitive guide. The Sunday Times Best Places to Live will prove invaluable for anyone starting a family, retiring, or simply considering a move.”

An overall national winner will be announced alongside the top 10 places in nine regions around the country.
