An area can become a hotspot because it is popular with commuters. Good transport links increase demand for rentals and homes available to buy. As a result locations in London with Tube Stations tend to generate the most interest. Surprisingly though some of these areas can still offer affordable prices.

Redbridge is a popular part of North London and has some of the fastest transport links into the centre of the city. As a result it has become a location that many commuters take a serious look at. New data supports the fact that the area has some of the most affordable locations to commute from.

Surprisingly Redbridge itself was the top area. Homes close to the Tube station cost an average of £182 per week in rent. It takes around half an hour on the Central Line to reach Oxford Circus and there are easy connections across the capital. In addition to being the cheapest area in this Borough, Redbridge is ninth on the list of most affordable commuter spots in London.

Woodford (£191), Wanstead (£204) and Hainault (£222) are also top locations in the Borough. Journey times to Oxford Circus from these areas take around 35, 30 and 45 minutes respectively.
