Can You Commute to London From Winchester?
It’s one of the easier commutes in the south west, with trains running regularly to Waterloo, and journey times of around an hour. Commuters report that the service is good, and parking around the station is adequate. A daily commute is exhausting, though. The ideal to try and achieve would be 2 or 3 days a week – avoiding peak times if possible – with flexible home working the rest of the time.
Where to Buy Property in Winchester?
Hyde, just two minutes from the city centre is a popular location with a villagey feel. 3 bedroomed terraces cost around £550,000 in this area. St Cross is also popular, as is Fulflood. Winchester is surrounded by beautiful villages such as Twyford just 10 minutes from the centre. 3 bedroomed properties in the village cost around £500,000.
What’s the Local Culture?
Winchester is a university city which means that students swell the population significantly in term time. The cathedral draws visitors from around the world, making the city a busy centre for tourists around the year. The Hat Fair is an outdoor arts festival that happens every summer, but there are also literary and music festivals too. Winchester has plenty to offer everyone.
Where are the Best Schools?
Pretty much all the state schools (primary and secondary) in the Winchester region have been rated as good or outstanding by Ofsted. The most popular primaries are St Faith’s, St Bede’s and St Peter’s. There’s fierce competition for all of them, so a weather-eye on catchment areas is useful. For secondaries, King’s School, Thorndon School and Peter Symonds Sixth Form College are the top choice.
Choosing a Local Removals Company in Winchester
Schepens has been moving families to Winchester for over a century now. We love this ancient city and we are all too familiar with the oddities of the road system, and the lack of parking spaces. We are a local, family-run business and our aim has always been to should some of the stress our clients experience as moving day approaches. We do this by offering a range of services designed to lighten the load:
- Packing – all our packers are trained professionals. They are able to pack your house in hours, label boxes accurately for efficient unpacking, and create a detailed inventory. If you prefer they can clear a specific room, or offer you support on moving day.
- Non-standard Items – if you have any valuable pieces of fine art, antiques, or musical instruments that require specialist packing and loading, we can create a bespoke removals plan, and arrange appropriate insurance cover.
- Storage – many of our clients use Schepens Self Storage door-to-door service for furniture or goods that won’t fit in their new home. We deliver a container when and where you need it. Our packers can help with the loading and inventory creation. Once packed, your container will be sealed and transported to our local, secure storage facilities.
- Removals Vehicles – our fleet of removals vehicles maintain a controlled temperature and humidity for the duration of the move. The vehicle is sealed and secured at all times whilst in transit, and our BAR trained drivers are local to London.
