One of the major benefits is that, whilst you can enjoy a quieter life, it is within commutable distance of London.

One of the reasons it’s so appealing to parents is the good standard of schools. In fact, many of them are considered excellent.
There are plenty of options too. You’ll find at least 10 primary schools and four secondary schools in the area.
This includes a mixture of both private and state schools. There are even more choices if you expand your outlook to Kent, and other surrounding areas.
