    Hi there,
    I am currently still in (North) London but have completely fallen in love with the Henley/Marlow area (actually now stretching as far as Amersham) and am trying to explore the details surrounding a move. The main issue for our family is going to be my husband’s commute. He is a lawyer who often works very long hours and his office is right in the city (nearest tube-Farringdon). I was wondering if any of you have any tips or experiences you could share about the commute into London?



    Hi Amy – I live in Chesham, just next to Amersham. Amersham gives you the choice of the Chiltern Line and the Met line. The Chiltern Line in particular has a good reputation for running when some of the others don’t and also, in extreme circumstances, it is only 20 minutes to High Wycombe or Berkhamsted where you can catch different lines. The Chiltern Line, I believe, is also cheaper than some of the others. The Met line can take you right into the City depending on the time of day. In terms of living in this area – we moved out of Chiswick in 1994 and really love it here. Easy access to London if you need it but right on the doorstep of beautiful country side. Schools in these areas are all very good, although some better than others. If you have very young children I always recommend contacting the local NCT to put you in touch with other local mothers with children the same age and you can then join their post-natal groups which is a great way to make friends when you move to a new area.

    Anything else you need to know?
