⬆️RE: It looks like West is best for London, long term - 10868

The wife ideally wants to go to Victoria, but just about anywhere in London is good, and that's good from West. Also the proposed (and I think actually due within the next two years) high speed rail link will be using Canterbury West so that'll shave about forty minutes off the journey time, so it doesn't really matter where in London you want to go.

My journey from home to Westenhanger will go back up to about an hour I think, ie about the same as if I worked in London. But on 2/3 the salary, hooray! If I get a car, that knocks it down hugely, most of the time will be spent waiting for a connection and changing at Ashford I think, but then if we did get a car we'd have nowhere to park it. It's a complex business...

Still loving Canterbury though and very keen to move there.
