Think again. • 37 mins from London • Superfast connections to Europe • Lower office rents • Skilled labour force • Better house prices • Excellent quality of life

YOU’RE LOOKING TO LIVE, WORK, OR INVEST IN A TOWN THAT’S CONNECTED, THRIVING AND GROWING. SOMEWHERE WITH A BUZZ ABOUT THE FUTURE AND WHERE EXCELLENT QUALITY OF LIFE AND GREAT VALUE GO HAND IN HAND. Ashford is a vibrant town in the midst of radical transformation. As the fastest-growing town between London and the continent, now just 37 mins from the capital on high speed rail, Ashford has an ambitious £2.5 billion development strategy that will create 31,000 new homes and 28,000 new jobs by 2031. A wealth of commercial, retail, residential and transport developments are in progress to complement the town’s regeneration into a new force for business in Kent and the South East, and to enhance it as a desirable place to live and visit. Being just 37 mins from London gives you the freedom to work or do business in the capital but come home to a bigger house, more outside space and a wonderful Kentish community. And basing your business in Ashford means larger, high quality offices for less money, and rail links that get you to that meeting in central London in just 37 mins or even Paris in under 2hrs on Eurostar.
