You might know of Ashford because of Ashford International, where the Eurostar alights en route to France, or you may have been through it on the M20 motorway. You might also be wondering why Ashford in Kent is mentioned on a website devoted to London, but the truth is that now that the rail links from here to the recently renovated St. Pancras Station in only 37 minutes it can be considered the latest suburban addition to the capital. Its transport links have helped the fact that Ashford is growing faster than anywhere else in England at the moment, with thousands of new homes and schools expected to appear over the next few years thanks to heavy investment from the government. A recent influx of French residents is giving Ashford a cosmopolitan feel, perhaps it will even become fashionable.
