Most families leaving London in search of a better-value home want a quick commute to the capital and an area that has good schools. Kent is popular because of the relatively high number of selective grammars, which can offer a top education that is also free.

The county’s handsome old spa town of Tunbridge Wells has three such schools plus the crucial ingredient for commuters  — trains to London in under an hour. Royal Wells Park, pictured, is a prestigious new address in richly landscaped grounds, just half a mile from the station, shops and amenities. Large flats and thoughtfully designed houses with up to five bedrooms are for sale, and the classical-style architecture is pleasing. Prices from £440,000. Call developer St James on 01892 239051.
