Why Move to Dartford?
With the onset of the 20th Century, Victorian Dartford was in a gradual state of decline. Fast forward to 2021, and there has been massive change across the region.
Dartford and its surrounds have emerged as an up-and-coming place to live, work, and relax. Offering the best of all worlds; a bustling commuter town that is well connected to London combined with stunning Kentish countryside and attractive waterside locations.
There are a number of great areas to move to within the borough. Buyers wanting bright lights and late nights can live in the centre of Dartford itself, which is undergoing an exciting regeneration program.
Semi-rural villages, including Hartley, Horton Kirby, Longfield and Wilmington, provide greener, tranquil settings.
If you love to shop, then the amazing Bluewater Shopping Centre, one of the largest under cover shopping malls in the UK, is located a mere a stone’s throw from Dartford in Greenhithe.
Bluewater is home to 330 stores offering a huge range of goods and services as well as cafes and restaurants. It also features a showcase cinema with IMAX technology. The centre is a place where people of all ages can enjoy retail therapy and quality entertainment.
The northern border of the town edges the River Thames looking out to Essex’s Purfleet. The south of the town lies not far from Farningham and Eynsford. These areas offer the opportunity to engage in riverside walks and village life locations.
Residents enjoy taking full advantage of Dartford’s traditional high street, home to the Priory shopping centre.
The town has also become a hot spot to have a good night out. You will find a great selection of restaurants and the chance to watch a show at the famous Orchard Theatre.
Dartford has so much. It is ideal for home buyers searching for a new home close to top grammar schools, plenty of entertainment, and for those who are seeking a better work/life balance, along with less expensive property than London and all within a short commute into the city.
Dartford is a winner on all counts.
