Edmonton: Wonderful life in the suburbs

Edmonton: Wonderful life in the suburbs

Working in London can be an aspiration for many people across the UK, with a number of different industries offering the very best jobs in the capital.

However, while many will want to take their career to the city, it is often not ideal to actually live in the centre, with restrictive accommodation costs and busy streets making for a stressful place to set up base. 

For this reason, many people, especially those who have young families, or those who have outgrown the sort of nightlife and busy atmosphere that might entice the younger generation, will turn towards the suburbs around the outskirts of the city centre.

Few will offer a better option than what can be discovered when looking at property for sale in Edmonton. The Enfield suburb offers the perfect commuter base without the prices and stresses associated with the city centre itself. 

Travel will be vital, of course, and thankfully Edmonton performs well on this front. Located just 8.6 miles from Charing Cross, it is well served by trains. The best option is to take the train from Edmonton Green to Liverpool Street, which will have commuters at their destination in just 20 minutes, taking the stress of travel out of the day.

Other highlights of the area include the fact it retains much of the beauty of days gone by, with various Georgian buildings dotted around simply making it a very attractive place to live, with a lot of history and heritage.

Of course, people who work in London will not want to be going into the city on their days off, so shopping in Edmonton is also vital. It has two main retail sectors.

The first of these has a small high street and a market, which is always popular with locals and allows them to pick up a range of local goods and fresh foods. The other area is home to a much larger street with a range of national and international retailers being situated in the area.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801636417-ADNFCR
