Swanley is a popular commuter town, just a 30 minute train ride from London Victoria. It also situated nearby and inside the M25 which provides excellent transport links as well as the opportunity to be paid London wages. With the urban sprawl of London increasing, Swanley is fast becoming known as an extension of south east London and around 16,500 people are calling it home. It is a large horticultural centre and has occasionally been labelled the 'home of flowers' with many local businesses sponsoring flower displays.
Living in Swanley can provide great days out with the family to both Swanley Park and Swanley New Barn Railway where there are opportunities to see miniature railways, paddling pools, sandpits, play areas and cafeterias.
Property prices are reasonable but on the increase, the added bonus of your own garden area is fairly common, a rarity so close to London!
