Working and living in a bustling city is fun for a certain length of time but after a while all the chaos and madness can get on top of you. As well as being expensive living in a city centre comes with so much commotion.
Perhaps if you’re looking for an easier life that is carefree and less noisy it would be better to set up home in a beautiful house on the outskirts in a village, town or settlement. And you can do just the same if you live in England’s capital!
Escape the hustle and bustle and live somewhere that is within an hour’s commute so there is a healthy balance of work and play alongside tranquillity. The Telegraph newspaper has put together the top five places to breakout of London.
– St Albans, Hertfordshire
It only takes 21 minutes to commute to Central London and has everything a Brit needs from good shopping, new homes and high-achieving schools.
– East Grinstead, West Sussex
This area takes a little bit longer to commute to London with the travel taking 58 minutes but the pretty environment and 14th century facades are sure-fire ways to counter balance the distance.
– Tring, Hertfordshire
This charming market town is 42 minutes away from London and is surrounded by countryside with canals and reservoirs; perfect for the keen outdoor types.
– Camberley, Surrey
This is a classic commuter country and is around one hour and 15 minutes away from London, equivalently 30 miles. It has an Eighties centre and housing estates galore.
– Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire
If you are after bags of community spirit, period properties and a short 50 minute commute this town is perfect.
