There are hundreds of website designers in Kent and many around Canterbury for local businesses to choose from, so working with a designer that is several hours drive outside the city is really not necessary.
Although website design can be done remotely, meeting up with the web designer is always good, partly to ensure they are what they claim to be on their website (you never know these days!); but also to sit down and discuss ideas, designs and strategies.
As there are so many website designers around London and Kent, it also makes good sense to select one that knows your industry and market, through having made sites for similar enterprises before. This could make all the difference between a great website, and a great website which brings the custom you are looking for.
Choosing a website designer that is the right ‘size’ is also important; if your business is large or international, then choosing a freelancer may not be the best route.

Comparing quotes is the only way to get a feel for what is a reasonable price to pay (a fair price for a fair days work) and prevent overspending. All agencies set their own rates. so web design prices will vary considerably.
If you are looking for a cheap website then a freelancer will be best to talk to; if you are looking for a more in depth e-commerce website, then a larger agency with more facilities available will be more appropriate.

This ancient city is in the north of Kent; the population is around 50,000.
The name ‘Canterbury’ is said to come from an old English word ‘Cantwareburh’, meaning ‘Kent’s people’s stronghold’. The Archbishop Of Canterbury is the head of the Church Of England, and this dates back to the founding of an Episcopal seen by St Augustine in 597 AD.
In 1348 the Black Death hit the city hard, bringing it’s population down from 10,000 to 3,000. During the Peasants’ Revolt in 1381, the Earl of Sudbury was captured during prayer and taken to London where he was beheaded. He is still remembered in the city.
As the city is so close to the southern coasts, the city was hit badly by air raids during the first and second World Wars, and in 1917 a German bomber crash landed in the city, near Broad Oak Road.
In 1980 the city had a visit from both Queen Elizabeth II and Pope John Paul II, leading to the Canterbury Festival.
It had around 5,000 registered businesses.
