My place is close to the city centre, new shopping centre (1 min) parks (tennis and swimming), culture, and restaurants and shops. You’ll love it because of the location. It is good for solo visitors and academics. It has an urban/ rural feel. One side, opens to the city ( 10 min walk) and the other, a stream and the Thames. It is ideal for anyone walking the Thames Path. Transport links are good being near the bus and rail stations. Also close to ice rink.
