Why Move to Wokingham?
An historic, prosperous, and attractive market town Wokingham is one of those places which offers the best of both worlds, beautiful countryside yet within easy reach of London. In recent years Wokingham has been rated highly by several organisations.
The Halifax Quality of Life Survey put the town in the top position as one of the best places to raise a family and Public Health England reported that it had the lowest premature mortality rates of all local authorities in England. Being just under 40 miles from London and 8 miles from Reading, makes it an ideal location for commuters. Furthermore, crime is low, and residents have access to some particularly good schools which makes it ideal for growing families.
The area has a lively cultural scene with plenty of organised events to keep everyone entertained such as festivals, fetes and even an annual classic car rally. Wokingham also has a great selection of trend café’s, pubs, bars, and restaurants. Its retail offering consists of an eclectic mix of local, national, and international retailers, including Waitrose and other high street supermarkets.
Having a good railway station that offers routes into the city (51 minutes) and plenty of other towns in the region makes Wokingham so accessible. Newbury, Basingstoke, Maidenhead and Slough are all very commutable. With the arrival of the new HS2, it is only going to add to the town’s favourable commuting times. Wokingham with its blend of market town convenience, open countryside and excellent location to major towns and cities, is well worthy of the accolades it regularly receives.
