City-bound commuters can make the most of small settlements

City-bound commuters can make the most of small settlements

Working in the big cities spread across England can often bring about a level of stress thanks to busy streets and travelling in as a commuter, so making sure that you pick somewhere to live that offers you the chance to relax and feel at home, as well as being very different to the setting that you will work in between nine and five each day is imperative.

If this is the sort of split lifestyle that you are looking for, then as well as looking for something that offers you a little bit of change and difference, you will want to still be within touching distance of your city of choice, and one place you can do this is discoverable when you look for property for sale in Attleborough.

The Norfolk market town is ideal on both fronts, situated near to Norwich, making it ideal for commuters headed into the county's largest city, while also having just 9,000 residents, making it a largely quiet and toned-down setting when compared to city life; perfect for those who want the chance to relax.

For commuters, there is a regular service from the town into the city of Norwich from Attleborough Station, with the 19 minute journey being a breeze for workers. Those headed further afield can also make it to Cambridge in less than an hour.

When in the town, you will probably want to feel like you are part of the more rural culture, and you can do so by visiting the weekly market, taking place on a Thursday, where you can find local produce on the original site of the market.

Moving with a family, you will also want to know that there are good places for the kids to go to learn when you are off at work, so that they get a good start in life. Attleborough is served by four schools, so you will be able to visit all of them, and make an informed decision over where to send your offspring to start their educational career.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801519135-ADNFCR
