An area in the borough has been named as one of the best places to commute into London from.

It has been revealed by that rental properties around Redbridge tube station offer excellent value for money and time.

Workers travelling from Redbridge Station can get to Oxford Circus in under 30 mins and pay on average £182 per week in rent.

This puts the station as the number one place to commute from in Redbridge and the ninth best in the capital.

In the borough, the second best place to commute from is Woodford with weekly rent of £191, followed by Wanstead with £204 and Hainault with £222.

The most expensive place to commute from is South Woodford with an average weekly rental price of £262, followed by Fairlop at £248 and then Gants Hill with £242.

Across London, Seven Sisters on the Victoria Line has been crowned the overall winner with a 15 minute travel time and £209 rent charge.

A spokesman for TotallyMoney said the research looks at average weekly rent for properties close to each underground station on each line, and assesses how rents and journey times vary as you move away from the centre.

“Using the data, TotallyMoney’s data scientists extrapolated that Londoners, on average, pay £7.20 for each minute they shave off their journey,” he said.

“To gain an extra 10 minutes in bed would cost £3,744 each year.”

While some may balk at the thought of paying so much, there are some underground lines that perform far better than others and the Central line, outright wins with four stations in the top ten.

West London’s Hammersmith is the worst performing location, with above average weekly rents of £484, and relatively long journey times to more central locations.
