Looking for the perfect place to settle down, start building a life and raise a family? Then look no further than the sunny banks of Sunbury-on-Thames. Also known as Sunbury, this picturesque town is located in Surrey and is only half an hour from London Waterloo making it a real hidden gem with plenty to offer.
1. Get all the perks of the big city, without the hustle and bustle
Only 13 miles from Charing Cross, Sunbury is within comfortable travelling distance to central London, and has excellent railway and motorway links too. This means you get all the benefits of a leafy, suburban life, but can still commute to work, go to a West End show and even hit the shops whenever you want.
2. Picturesque doesn’t even cover it
Lower Sunbury is packed with parks and listed buildings and is even home to Kempton Park Racecourse, so you’ll never be short of a beautiful spot to walk your dog or settle down for a picnic in.
3. Unlimited entertainment, right on your doorstep
Whether it’s laid back nightlife in the form of welcoming bars and gastropubs, or something a bit more energetic like the local leisure centre, rugby and football pitches, Sunbury has it all. The local Queen Mary Reservoir is also home to a watersports centre and sailing club if that’s more your scene.
4. The River Thames, without the tourists
One of the world’s most famous rivers, the River Thames flows right alongside this area, with yearly highlights such as the Sunbury Amateur Regatta taking place here every August, and the Riverside Arts Centre, which hosts local theatre productions, performances and even a comedy club and annual arts festival along the river banks.
5. More than an education
If you’re looking for somewhere to raise a family, few locations can beat the pleasant village atmosphere and great schools available in Sunbury, with Chennestone and St Ignatius Catholic Primary schools and Sunbury Manor secondary all highly sought after and rated well by Ofsted.
