Living in Aylesham

Excellent schooling

For its size, Aylesham has great options for education. There are several nurseries and a choice of two primary schools, both rated Good by Ofsted. Within the village is a community library and a leisure centre, providing plenty of classes and activities for children. For secondary schools, nearby Canterbury provides a wealth of choices with a choice of schools ranked as Outstanding by Ofsted.

In terms of further education, both The University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University are based nearby in Canterbury. Meaning they can easily be accessed from your Persimmon home, avoiding the need for costly student accommodation. Whatever their age, if you’re moving to Aylesham with children, their education will be well catered for.

Good transport connections

Situated almost exactly halfway between Dover and Canterbury, there are great transport links to both from Aylesham. Direct trains take just over 10 minutes to Canterbury and 16 minutes to Dover, with a journey time of around 20 minutes to both by car. The station provides a direct link to London Victoria in around 1 hour 45 minutes, and good links to the M2 and M20 take you straight towards the capital.

From your new Persimmon home, you’ll also only be 20 minutes away from the Eurotunnel at Folkestone, where you can travel to France with your car in as little as 35 minutes, meaning you have easy access to exciting locations both far and wide after buying a home here. 

Great amenities

Aylesham revolves around the central market square, which contains all the amenities needed for day-to-day life. Featuring a food and grocery shop, a pharmacy, a health centre and a post office, it has all the essentials for daily living. Clubs and classes for football, bowls, fitness and reading are available at the sports centre and the community hall, and there’s a great range of walks to enjoy around the village. For anything more, the surrounding towns and cities are very easy to travel to, so you’ll be able to easily access a huge range of shops, eateries and entertainment from your Persimmon home.
