Frequency of work

Although there is not much daily supply work there are plenty of attractive long-term roles to choose from.

Cost of accommodation

Average price of a double room to rent is £500 per month. Average price to rent a one bedroom flat is £795-£1,000 per month (excluding bills).

Transport links

Although there are no London underground stations in the borough and no links to the London overground network, there are several busy local rail routes running between the borough’s towns, connecting it with the central London stations of London Bridge, St. Pancras International and London Victoria. You can get into central London in under 30 minutes.

Vibe, type of people that live there

It is a large and diverse borough, but is generally classified as part of the suburban commuter belt of London and as such is perhaps less multicultural than other boroughs, particularly the more central ones.

Leisure

Sutton offers plenty of tranquil areas, despite being a London suburb. It boasts some 1500 acres of parkland for you to relax in. For more active pursuits, there are several leisure centres in the area offering a full range of sports and fitness related activities. Theatre buffs can choose from two Sutton’s main theatres, the Secombe Theatre and the Charles Cryer Studio Theatre.

Why choose Sutton?

Sutton used to be a collection of rural villages, something which is still in evidence today as people still refer to many places such as Cheam, Carshalton and Belmont as being villages. The rich history and environment of the borough is reflected in the large number of heritage areas designated as conservation areas and areas of special local character.
