Ebbsfleet is a 21st century pioneer – the first garden city in 100 years that is being created across 2,500 acres of previously used, brownfield land on the Kent Thames riverside.
Located just 20 minutes from central London, Ebbsfleet brings together a network of individual neighbourhoods, each with its own carefully designed character. It is somewhere to grow a family, build a business, socialise, and enjoy a unique city-country lifestyle on the edge of London and Kent.
Over time, it will grow into one of the South East’s leading places to live and work. At its heart will be Ebbsfleet Central. Set around the international railway station, Ebbsfleet Central will be a major commercial destination in its own right with next-generation workspaces, city-style apartments, culture and connections to parks, schools, lakes and health and wellbeing facilities.
