Saffron Walden has been voted as one of the best places to live in 2018 and has been for the past 877 years according to The Sunday Times.
Saffron Walden is changing its vibe and attracting a new wave of young families enticed by the lure of reasonably priced housing, good schools, namely Saffron Walden’s Outstanding County High school as well as a good selection of primary schools.
Saffron Walden also has good connections, with a 55 minutes journey into London and a 20 minutes journey into Cambridge and not forgetting its close proximity to London Stansted.
The Medieval streets, pubs, independent shops (71% of shops are independent), cafes and restaurants really do make it a lovely place to wind away the hours. Living in the town centre itself gives on-foot access to a whole host of quaint, traditional pubs.
The town is also known for its literary and music festivals, as well as Saffron Screens arts cinema, also serve up a whole host of delights including a good English cuppa and some homemade cakes.
The market also draws a good crowd on a Saturday morning, especially the fruit and veg stalls with its local celebrity.
There is also good access to the local countryside and local events at Audley End house. All in all, it’s easy to see why Saffron Walden has been voted one of the best places to live as it really does offer the perfect package to those people who are lucky enough to live there.
