The suburban town of Feltham in Middlesex is only 2 miles from Heathrow Airport, and only a half hour train journey from London Waterloo. With lower house prices than the centre of London, you can snap up a great home here and still have the ability to commute to London for work or pleasure.
In terms of things to do, Feltham boasts many of the amenities of other Hounslow Borough Towns like a shopping centre, leisure centre, cinema and ten pin bowling, so you won’t be stuck for something to do when you can’t be bothered travelling to the big city. Many residents also travel slightly further afield to the more major shopping centres of Hounslow, Kingston and Staines for more serious shopping.
A great location and convenient services aside, the thing that makes Feltham stand out amongst droves of nearby towns is its bright open spaces. The local Hanworth Park and Crane Parks are hives of activity when the weather is good, and if you decide to set up home here, you’ll be in good company as former residents include Freddie Mercury, Brian May and Jimmy Page. However, this is not only the town’s claim to fame; if you’re into your music history, Oasis also filmed a video for their song Stand By Me in the town.
Regarding industry, many high profile companies such as DHL and Arqiva have made Feltham a base for their operations. With its proximity to Heathrow Airport, for over a century Feltham has been home to many land and air transport companies, and Aston Martin also had it’s main factory located here in the past.
The perfect place for you to get your foot on the property ladder, Feltham is ideal for those looking for all the perks of a suburban way of life, with the added accessibility of nearby London.
