Southgate: A perfect London commuter base

Southgate: A perfect London commuter base

People working in the heart of London often want to put a barrier between their professional and personal lives that means they look to live away from the hustle and bustle of the nine to five.

When searching for such a place to live, house seekers will find a great many different settlements on the outskirts of the town that lend themselves to a quieter way of life and offer the perfect transport services and hubs into the capital for the daily schedule.

One venue will be found by those who are seeking out property for sale in Southgate. Located just eight miles from Charing Cross, and served by its own tube station – a famed circular transport hub – workers are able to reach their office with ease every day.

They will also be within easy travelling distance of a number of different entertainment facilities such as the O2 Brixton Academy and the O2 Arena for music, and the famous Odeon at Leicester Square to catch the latest Hollywood blockbusters.

However, as well as having access to London itself, it will also be important for commuters to know that there is still enough for them to see and do back home. Southgate will provide for this need with a wide number of restaurants and shops.

What could be better on a summer weekend than enjoying a quiet drink near to home rather than having to travel, after all?

Grovelands Park is one of the largest attractions of the area, with acres of green space. This provides the perfect place for young professional couples to take a stroll with their pet dog, or even for families to enjoy a spot of football or other sport.

The park also houses a boating pond, allowing for a relaxing sort of activity that really characterises summer with more of a rural feel, even given Southgate's positioning in the country.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801549085-ADNFCR
