It's no secret that London at the moment is a shadow of its former self - the vibrancy of this great city seems to have been sucked from its streets and many attractions by the Coronavirus. The throngs of tourists are missing - and the City is not the playground of the men and women in their business suits anymore. Combine this with the fact that prices for London accommodation are still sky high and you start to get an idea of why many people are forsaking its streets for more relaxed surroundings.
One of the towns that is attracting attention from Londoners (and property investors from further afield) is Maidenhead in Berkshire. It's only 40 minutes from Tottenham Court Road station thanks to a new rail link (and 20 minutes from Paddington on an Uber fast train), and the town is filled to the brim with attractions that range from superb dining destinations to walks on the banks of Thames. Speaking of the Thames there are numerous parks that cater to families in search of the perfect day out. Ray Mill Island is one of these. A great kids playground and a cafe on the water are the perfect antidote for stress.
But those foodie destinations have contributed hugely to the popularity of Maidenhead. It's amazing to think that the town boasts celebrity chefs that share a haul of seven Michelin stars between them. Of course one of the amazing draw cards is Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck. There are also a myriad of pubs to enjoy. Special mention must go to Boulters. Set on an island in the middle of the Thames (a recurring theme) it is a great place to enjoy an outdoor meal overlooking the water, the decor is clean and stylish and meals such as the 'Pan-fried Sea Bass Fillets' are exceptional, as are the deli plates. A great cocktail menu as well. For more award winning cuisine head to Roux at Skindles. Set in the well known Skindle's hotel, Michel and Alain Roux serve up exceptional French inspired cuisine.
Job opportunities in Maidenhead are attracting more and more young professionals. With companies like Adobe, Johnson Johnson and GSK based in Maidenhead and exceptional schooling in the area, the property market is flourishing. Those wishing to invest in property can choose from a wide variety of Victorian properties, new build apartments and an increasing number of new developments the town is a tremendously attractive option for those in search of a stable base within easy reach of London.
