Commuters: Harlow one of the cheapest places to live outside London

Entertainment / Sat 22nd Aug 2020 pm31 12:16pm

AS the capital of England, London is naturally amongst the most expensive places to live in the UK.

Housing, food and the average pint will come at a marked up price, which ultimately may deter people from planting their roots there.

COVID-19 has likely added to the appeal of cities outside – but still close – to the capital.

The way to calculate the best possible commuter town is by combining a variety of financial variables.

These include the cost of factors such as rent, mortgages or the ever-important season ticket.

A report by property site Zoopla earlier this year did just that, while also factoring in travel time.

They discovered a total of 10 areas which would give city workers a good bang for their buck.

The cheapest areas to live outside of London are the following:
