Forest Gate: London commuter life with a cultural twist

Forest Gate: London commuter life with a cultural twist

When it comes to finding the perfect place to live as a commuter into London, the main consideration will always be transport and the length of time it can take you to get into work. However, for most people, there are other things they could add into their list of desires, such as living in a place of history and beauty.

This is the sort of thing that can be found when you are out and about and having a look at property for sale in Forest Gate. It is a popular area with London workers, largely because of the fact it is just seven miles from Charing Cross. 

However, the town also offers so much more to people who take pride in the area they live in. For example, many of the buildings, including shops and bars in the centre of Forest Gate, still have their original Victorian fronts, making them attractive and different.

It is the transport options that will be most important to the majority, though, and thankfully these are very attractive. Forest Gate Railway Station provides the perfect link to Liverpool Street Station in the capital via Stratford, getting commuters to work just minutes after they have left the area they live in.

Also back in the town, there are options for people who really want the chance to relax in their new settlements away from the stresses of the big city. Wanstead Flats will provide the perfect place for residents to take walks, picnics and other activities in a beautiful green area with rural overtones.

In addition to this, locals might want to spend the weekend with a visit to West Ham Park, an area where they can find room to walk their dogs, catch a game of Sunday League football or even just enjoy the fresh air.

Other popular areas in the London suburb include those such as Woodgrange Road, where retail fans can find a range of local and national stores to meet all their needs.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801622219-ADNFCR
