    I think it all depends what you do as to Kent being a good place to locate a business.

  2. Louis Alexander says:

    I love working in Kent. Why would anyone want to commute to London?

  3. Finlay Oliver says:

    Kent’s great but getting out of Kent on the M26/25 in the mornings is a nightmare.

  5. Sarah Maddocks says:

    There are some great office rental deals at the moment.

  6. I think Kent is a good place to start business as long as you are in M25 area. I have just started a B2B Portal and I am based in Kent and will be looking for a good office space. My search will obviously start locally in Greater London Kent area because it is easier in terms of transport to Central London and core Kent is also not far away.

  7. Dave Austin says:

    Kent has never been in a better position to capitalise its proximity to London, great road infrastructure and links to Europe. It is the prime place to start a business in the UK right now.

  8. Robert Terry says:

    We are based in kent, but work all over the UK. We have great links to london and the rest of the road network. And the rent is much cheaper than in town.
