Southend-On-Sea: Commuting paradise in peaceful Essex

Southend-On-Sea: Commuting paradise in peaceful Essex

Commuters who are heading into London on a daily basis will look to a number of different places around the capital when it comes to buying somewhere from where they can get into the city each morning.

For young professionals, rising inner-city prices have meant that the last few years have seen more and more people move to the boroughs around the capital itself in the suburbs. However, for people looking to start a family who still need good access to the city, finding an alternative can be difficult.

Looking further afield can be a good way to go about a search though, and few places will emerge as more perfect than when seeking out property for sale in Southend-on-Sea. Despite being further out, the Essex town has nearer to 150,000 residents, which makes it much quieter than back in the capital. 

When looking to move to anywhere around London, one of the most important considerations for any new residents will be the transport options. The town has access to London via car and bus, while the train options are fantastic. 

Trains from Southend Central run to London Fenchurch Street every five to ten minutes on weekdays, taking commuters into the city in less than an hour and making the commute little more than a breeze.

Considering that many of the people who will be moving to Southend will be parents though, schools will also be a very important thing for them to address. Thankfully, in Southend there are four grammar schools, meaning that new residents can choose something that best meets the needs of their children.

In addition to this, it will be important that there are enough recreational activities to keep people happy and content in the town. Southend has one of the longest piers in the country with a range of attractions as well as a sports and leisure centre offering a number of activities.

In addition to this, fans of football can watch some League Two action in Southend United throughout the new season.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801621292-ADNFCR
