Canterbury is less than an hour from London by train, home to world-leading universities, the closest city to Europe and 10 minutes from some of the country’s most beautiful seaside destinations. Added to that, it is a UNESCO heritage site and has a vibrant cultural scene which attracts 7.2m visitors every year.
These are the reasons why 5,700 businesses have chosen to base themselves in Canterbury. The Start-Up Cities Index 2017 named Canterbury as among the UK’s top 25 locations to start a business.
It’s an exciting growth phase with around £320 million of planned infrastructure investment up to 2031. Significant developments such as Altira Business Park and Herne Bay Sports Hub are coming up, and 16,000 new homes – together with schools, leisure and community facilities – are being built to meet the needs of the area’s growing population.
