Dagenham: The perfect suburban commuter town

Dagenham: The perfect suburban commuter town

When it comes to finding a commuter town in which to live for those working in London, the choices are plentiful, with surrounding counties providing much in the way of perfect suburban areas for city employees to relocate to and make their daily travel into the capital simple, reducing their stress levels.

If you are looking for something which provides just that, but also with a little bit more to offer, you could do worse than to turn your eye east of London and towards Essex, where you might just find the perfect property for sale in Dagenham.

The town is located just 12 miles from Charing Cross, meaning that travelling in Monday to Friday to the capital itself will be a short and stress-free part of the day. With trains available on the underground service travelling from the stations at Dagenham East, Dagenham Heathway and Becontree into the capital, you can relax, safe in the knowledge that you will always be on time for work.

As well as being able to reach the office each day though, there are also other aspects of life to consider when you move to a new area, and recreation will be important. Sport is always a big part of life for many, and if you are a football fan, Dagenham and Redbridge FC play at the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham Stadium in the town, giving you a chance to see something a little different, with the best League Two has to offer.

And when a little bit of retail therapy is on the cards at the end of the working week, locals can get themselves down to The Mall Shopping Centre in the Heathway area of the town, where they can find a number of high street stores without having to venture into the capital on their day away from work to pick up their latest fashions, grab a spot of lunch, or even just enjoy a quiet afternoon coffee.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801506392-ADNFCR
