We love Sutton and think that you’ll love it to.
If you are considering a move and want a family orientated area, Sutton has some outstanding benefits! Crime rates are amongst the lowest in London, with Sutton being among the highest performing education authorities in the country. In fact, in 2011 it was the top performing borough for GCSE results in England and remains an outstanding place for education today!
Transport is a major draw with Sutton station being the town's major station, from where frequent direct trains run to several main central London stations within 25 minutes − London Victoria, London Bridge, Blackfriars, City Thameslink and, for Eurostar services, St Pancras International. West Sutton and Sutton Common stations are both on the Thameslink lines to Wimbledon and on to central London direct.
Road traffic is diverted away from a largely pedestrianised town centre, and there are many designated cycle routes in Sutton, along with links to neighbouring towns. There are three main car parks in the town centre and a car club.
Sutton is London's sixth most important retail centre and attracts shoppers from a wide area. The High Street runs for nearly a mile from Sutton Green to Sutton station, and hosts many of the country's main high street names.
Sutton has a range of public art, a large library, music venue, cinema and theatre, along with an abundance of restaurants and bars catering to broad tastes and individual preferences.
The town centre had been designated one of the first ten Heritage Action Zones by Historic England. Gaining this status has encouraged economic growth with major regeneration projects being underway or have recently been completed in the town centre.
Healthcare wise, the world-renowned Royal Marsden Hospital has a longstanding presence in Sutton, with the Institute of Cancer Research being located next to the hospital. St Helier hospital offers a full range of hospital services including a 24-hour accident and emergency department. The site is also home to the Queen Mary's Hospital for Children, a dedicated children's hospital.
Sport plays a big part in the borough, with Sutton United F.C. playing in the EFL League Two for the first time in their 123 year history after winning the 2020-21 National League. Sutton Cricket Club plays at the highest level of the sport available, the Surrey Championship Premier Division, which they won in 2009.
There really is a huge variety of gyms, health clubs and sporting venues that are on situated in the borough that caters for anything that you require.
All things considered; Sutton just ticks all the boxes. Come and discover what is an unparalleled place to live!
