Caterham may appeal to commuters

Caterham may appeal to commuters

The town of Caterham could be an ideal base for those who have to regularly travel into London for work purposes.

Located eight miles from Croydon, Caterham is only 18 miles away from the capital and therefore it could offer a perfect location for anyone hoping to get more for their money.

Property for sale in Caterham is in high demand from commuters but it does tend to offer better value for money than some of the more central and traditional bases.

However, there is a regular train service from Caterham that takes just 50 minutes to get into the heart of London - a perfectly acceptable commuting time, especially as people can use tablets, laptops or smartphones to do some work or catch up on the news while travelling.

Of course, Caterham offers more than just good location, it also has great educational options for families opting to relocate to the area. There is a mix of private and state institutions, including Caterham School and Oakhyrst Grange, while de Stafford School is the largest secondary school in the region.

There is also a wealth of sporting facilities in the local area and there are two popular football clubs which have regular fixtures - Caterham Pumas and Queens Park FC. The town also has a shared ground that accommodates the local cricket and rugby clubs.

For those who enjoy exercise outdoors, the town is located close to a National Trail, that runs from Farnham to Dover and passes by Godalming, Guildford, Dorking and along the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Kent Downs AONB.

Entertainment-wise there is plenty to appeal to young children and art fans. Caterham is home to a skate park, a community arts and theatre venue, as well as the East Surrey Museum.

Of course, one of the most famous links for the town is the well-known Caterham 7 sports car. However, production has been moved to Dartford because of the success of the vehicle.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801724492-ADNFCR
