Why move to Sittingbourne?

Sittingbourne is an industrial town in the South East of England and is nestled on the Swale. Just 17 miles from Canterbury and 45 miles from London. On the fast train commuters can be at London Victoria within an hour, this coupled with the recent surge in new build developments have made Sittingbourne an ideal location for those wishing to escape the fast paced lifestyle of the capital.

 

Location

A short 45 minute drive will take you to the beautiful beaches of the Kent coast. The county’s seaside resorts have the most blue flag beaches of any county in England. The famous white sands, variety of water sports and eclectic mix of trendy coffee shops, wine bars and restaurants make for a day of adventure right on your doorstep.

 

Schools

If you are a family looking to relocate, be assured that Sittingbourne is home to outstanding schools as rated by Ofsted. Highsted Grammar School on Highsted Road, is an all girls school for 11 – 18 years. Borden Grammar on Avenue of Remembrance is the state funded senior school for boys aged 11 – 18 and St. Peter’s Catholic Primary is a mainstream state funded junior school and has a strong emphasis on faith as well as music and P.E.

 

Restaurants

In terms of eating out, Sittingbourne does not disappoint. The Three Tuns is a lovely cosy pub which is great for dining as well as drinking with a good choice of beers and ciders. The area is not just limited to pubs, Maharani Indian Restaurant on West Street has been voted the best restaurant in Sittingbourne but if Indian food is not of your choosing then why not make a reservation at the award winning Thaii Fusion which is in the heart of the town. They have an extensive menu and cater for vegetarians and vegans as well as meat eaters.
