Rural lifestyle near the city

For a lot of people, the idea of working in the city of London will be an exciting one, which brings the opportunity to be in and around the country's busiest streets, and also allows them to feel part of the fast-paced working lifestyle associated with places like the capital. However, for a lot of people who are looking to live near to where they work, the city itself may not be their favourite option, as the majority would rather live somewhere quieter and less hectic.

Such options can be found by those who are looking to relocate who search for property for sale in Dagenham. The town itself is located in Essex, and is situated just 12 miles to the east of Charing Cross. This makes it one of the best areas surrounding the capital for those who want to take up the option of commuting into London.

For commuters, Dagenham offers a number of ideal options for travelling to and from London daily. The town is served by underground stations at Becontree, Dagenham East and Dagenham Heathway, each of which will have people in work in no time at all. There are also numerous buses which travel into the city, which helps to keep the options open for people working in London.

Outside of working hours, residents of Dagenham can enjoy exploiting the area's cultural and historical sites of interest, which include Valence House, a manor which dates back to the 13th century, and is the only existing manor in the town.

The town also plays host to fields at Saxton moot hall, which was once used as a prisoner of war camp for German soldiers during the second world war, a site that history buffs will definitely be looking to visit, if they should choose the move to the town.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801299931-ADNFCR
