Perfect family town on the outskirts of London

Perfect family town on the outskirts of London

When it comes to finding somewhere to move to for commuters who will be working in London, many will look to head to the city centre itself and live the fast paced way of life associated with this type of place.

However, there will also be an abundance of people who are moving their family towards the capital when they find work there, and the majority will be looking for somewhere cheaper and more conducive to bringing up children to live as a result.

For this reason, it is important to have a look at the surrounding areas of the capital, towards suburban areas that will be discovered by people looking for property for sale in Hornchurch. Situated in the London Borough of Havering, the town is an important retail and residential area for people working in the city.

One of the most important aspects for people living in these sorts of residential areas of suburban London is that transport into the city itself is good.

Hornchurch is located just 15 miles from Charing Cross, and as such, getting to work by car, for those who want to risk the traffic, should not be too difficult.

However, it is also one of the best served areas in the city in terms of public transport, with numerous Transport for London bus services travelling through the area, and four different tube stations serving the town, including Hornchurch Tube station, making the potentially difficult task of getting to work each day very simple.

Away from work though, anyone taking their families to a new town will want to make sure that there is enough for the kids to do when they are there.

For those who like a bit of culture in their life, the town's entertainment centres around the Queen's Theatre, a 500 seater venue where various plays and pantomimes are held throughout the year.

And for those of a sporty mind, Premier League football can be enjoyed in the near vicinity, with travel to West Ham United's Upton Park from Hornchurch very easy.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801439380-ADNFCR
