Plaistow: Perfect for the London commuter

Plaistow: Perfect for the London commuter

Moving to London is something that many professionals in the UK aspire to do in order to find their dream job.

However, rising living costs in the capital mean that a great deal of those who relocate to the area often look slightly further a field for a home, namely one of London’s many fantastic boroughs.

Those who are looking to lead a commuter lifestyle may wish to consider what property for sale in Plaistow has to offer.

Located in the Newham borough, the urban area has brilliantly convenient transport links to the centre of the city and other parts of London.

Public transport links in the area mean that commuters can be in the very heart of the city in a mere 43 minutes, which is hardly any time at all by today's standards. 

This close proximity also means that keen cyclists will not be too far away to utilise their bike as a mode of transport.

For food and retail the area has a number of shops that allow you to get hold of all the essentials that you may need during the week, and of course if you do fancy a bit of a shopping spree, London centre is not too far away.

Nighttime revelers will be pleased to know that there are a selection of pubs and bars in the immediate vicinity. So if you don’t fancy heading out into the city proper for a few drinks, you can stay much closer to home and still enjoy a good time with friends.

Plaistow has two large urban parks nearby that are perfect for outdoor exercise. Plaistow park and Memorial Park are both great for getting out and about, a luxury that isn't always immediately associated with living in London. Those who prefer indoor exercise may wish to visit the Newham Leisure Centre which is available for locals to use.

Any parents moving to the area will find that Plaistow has a decent selection of schools, offering a choice regarding your child's education.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801689099-ADNFCR
