Plaistow perfect pick for commuters

As living costs in the country’s capital continue to rise, many professionals seek a cheaper alternative to living in the centre of London.

With excellent public transport you’re never too far away from the centre of London, but choosing the right borough for you is still important.

People looking to get out of the centre but still staying close to the action could look at property for sale in Plaistow.

With regeneration in the area on the up after the success of the London Olympics, the location could be a great place for first time buyers to get onto the property ladder.

Located in the Newham borough of greater London, Plaistow offers a 43 minute commute on public transport and even less by car (just over 20 minutes).

Just far enough away to avoid inflated living but close enough to enjoy all the amenities inner London has to offer, the residential area could provide a great base for those who work in London.

The area has two large urban parks, perfect for outdoor exercise. Plaistow park and Memorial Park both cover around ten acres of land each.

With West Ham and Upton Park both close by, you can enjoy the London Olympic Park which has brought a great deal of tourism to the local area.

Young professionals with children can also find a good selection of schools in the area. Tollgate Primary School’s assistant head teacher was awarded with the 2012 teacher of the year award.

Plaistow contains various retail and food shops that allow residents to take care of their shopping without having to head into the city centre.

The area also boasts a selection of top Indian restaurants as well as some establishments that specialises in African cuisine.

For a small residential area, Plaistow contains a decent amount pubs and bars. If you're looking for a quiet drink, or a pitstop before a big night out in the city, there are plenty of places to go.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801827554-ADNFCR
