When we look at the towns for our next housing development, the commute time into Central London is an important aspect of where we choose. House buyers will always research top commuter hotspots in London. We understand the importance of good transport links into Central London if you are living outside the city. So what is an acceptable time? 60 minutes is perhaps the very limit. 30 minutes is good and under 20 minutes is excellent.
Here we take a look at all the towns in our development portfolio and using this awesome website, www.commutefrom.com, we will show the train times into some of Central London’s most popular stations. We hope this will help paint a clearer picture of the top commuter hotspots in London.
If you work in Liverpool Street, you can get there in 16 minutes from East Croydon. And if you arrive at the station as the train is pulling away, don’t fret. Another train will be along in 6 minutes! Fancy a night out in the West End? You can be enjoying the sites and sounds of Leicester Square in under 30 minutes. Croydon is one of the top commuter hotspots in London, which is why we have 4 developments there. Find out more about them here.
From Sutton you can get to Waterloo in 20 minutes, from where you quickly access the rest of London. Fancy a bit of classic London street food and street entertainment? You can get from Sutton to vibrant Covent Garden in under 45 minutes. Like Croydon, Sutton is one of the top commuter hotspots in London.
A little further out but this gives you benefit of a villagey, market town with plenty of green space and parks to enjoy. You can get from Epsom to London Victoria in 38 minutes. Epsom is definitely considered as one of the top commuter hotspots in London.
Like Epsom, Chertsey is a peaceful, quaint town popular for commuters with families. You can get to Waterloo in under an hour and on your commute home, you can rest easy in the knowledge that you will be getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
You can get from Crawley to Waterloo in just over 45 minutes. Sure, the commute is a little longer for city workers, but Crawley is close to the beaches on the South Coast. Surely a happy compromise!
So, we hope this paints a clearer picture of the top commuter hotspots in London. If you’d like to learn more about the Inspired Homes developments in these towns, click here.
