Coastal paradise within the reach of London

Coastal paradise within the reach of London

Many people who are moving home this year will be looking to give themselves a mixture of the most important aspects of life, especially if they are set to take their family to a new destination. In these circumstances, a mixture of a place that will give adults something to do, while also providing education and lifestyle benefits for the kids will top the list.

Thankfully, all of these benefits are able to be found in one place, and will be reachable for those who are seeking out property for sale in Southend-on-Sea. The Essex town is located on the coast, and is a seaside resort which makes for the idyllic sort of location that homeowners will be looking for, especially during the warmer summer months.

One of the benefits to the Essex town is that it is located just 40 miles from the capital, London. This will mean that those who want to be in touch with the city for shopping and other leisure activities can be, and journeys there via bus or train will not take too long. However, it is also located far enough away that the lifestyle will be far quieter and less hectic.

For those with children though, the main aspect that they will look at before relocating to a new town will be how good its education system is. Being a sizeable town with a population over 173,000, Southend has a number of schools, comprising of four grammar schools and two single sex schools. This range of facilities will give parents the perfect choices before they send their kids off into their academic careers.

There will also be much to do for those who want activities out of the working day though, and Southend's own leisure centre will provide kids and adults with a great place to enjoy tennis and a number of indoor activities. For anyone who had developed a desire to emulate the success of British gold medal heroes at the London Olympics, the town also has floodlit facilities to cater for all track and field events.

Other town highlights will include the likes of the annual music festival and a number of museums that exist in the town itself, giving children the chance to get a little view of history.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801434441-ADNFCR
