Wickford: The ideal commuter setting

Wickford: The ideal commuter setting

Choosing a place to live if you are going to become a commuter in the capital city can often leave quite a dilemma for house buyers.

It can become a toss up between whether you want to live in the city itself, with all the hustle and bustle this brings, or move to a quieter way of life and commute every day.

For those whom the latter option suits more, there are a number of suburban areas and towns that surround the capital, making it easy to head into the city each and every day. None of these will offer a better opportunity and way of life for commuters than that which will be discovered by people looking for property for sale in Wickford.

The town is located in Essex, and with a population of just 32,500 people, it will be a world away from living in London, with quieter streets, fewer people, and a chance to feel like part of a small community.

However, if you are to work in the city, it will be important to know that you can still get there each day. This can be achievable for those who are commuting, as London is located just 30 miles from the town.

Whether travelling by road or rail, being just 30 miles from London will make Wickford seem like the perfect base for anyone making this journey.

Some of the benefits of living outside of the city can be found in Wickford. This can include the chance to get out in nature and see a bit of the countryside. The town is home to The Wick Country Park, which is a five-acre area where there are various nature trails and chances to see a bit more of the local area.

And with any small town such as this, you are likely to be able to feel the more rural vibe surrounding it. This is in evidence in the main street, where you can find many small shops and tea rooms to make you feel at home.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801467192-ADNFCR
