Coulsdon offers edge of London living

Coulsdon offers edge of London living

The town of Coulsdon is close to the London suburb of Croydon and is perfect for commuters.

Its location is its main benefit as it offers relatively quick and easy links into the centre of the capital - ideal for those who have to work in the office five days a week.

Regular services run from Coulsdon South and Coulsdon Town railway stations, which offers direct trains to London at least four times an hour.

There is also a large choice of property for sale in Coulsdon so there is bound to be something to suit most budgets and tastes.

As well as appealing to commuters, Coulsdon is establishing a great reputation as somewhere to raise children, as it has a number of schools including Byron Primary School, Coulsdon Church of England Primary School and Chipstead Valley Primary School.

Families with older children may also be interested in Coulsdon Sixth Form College, which specialises in providing education for 16 to 19-year-old students, as well as offering a number of adult classes.

One other highlight of Coulsdon is the Memorial Gardens, this outdoor space is home to a crazy golf course plus several cricket pitches and tennis and basketball courts.

For fitness fans, there are two gyms in the area - Fitness First and Fight Factory - offering a range of workout equipment and classes to get that heart rate up.

Those who prefer a more sedate workout may be tempted by the 18-hole golf course and a nearby crown green bowls club.

People often take a visit to Coulsdon Common when the weather is nice. A 51 hectare public open space, it is located in the North Downs Natural Area and boasts a mix of lovely chalk grassland and wood pasture habitats.

In terms of day-to-day living, there is a large supermarket in the area, as well as smaller shops - so most immediate needs can be met without having to travel very far from home.
