In a London suburb (voted London Borough of Culture 2019) our house is at the top end of a quiet 'no through road' so there isn't much traffic to worry about. A variety of local public transport options - bus, tube and overland train service all provide easy access to central London for sight-seeing and business trips.
10/15 mins walk to local shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs.
Your room gives a great base for exploring London. There is even the backgate giving direct access to Epping forest.
