Deal has been named one of the 30 best places to live by the sea.
According to The Times, Deal is 23rd on the list, due to the new high-speed link to London, its Georgian townhouses and its award-winning high street with independent shops.
Writer Liz Rowlinson gives reference to the houses in the sought-after conservation area of Middle Street. House prices range from £350,000 for two-bedroom houses to apartments with sea views for £180,000.
The Times also listed Deal as one of the top 30 best places to visit for a weekend retreat in April 2014, when it was commended for it’s Fifties vibe and its mix of writers, musicians and business people.
The Telegraph also considered Deal to be one of the top 20 towns to consider relocating to.
Deal MP Charlie Elphicke said: “This accolade is yet more evidence of the success of Deal. They used to say we were a “village” unworthy of the fast train.
"Now they say we have the best high street in the land and the fast train calls all day every day. It all goes to show how far we’ve come together!”
