Gerrards Cross is a small village located in Buckinghamshire. It spans foothills of the Chiltern Hills and it has a central public park, Gerrards Cross Common, in addition to Bulstrode Park Camp (a preserved area of land which was an Iron Age fortified encampment). Gerrards Cross takes its name from the Gerrard family that lived in a manor in the area during the 17th Century.
Although Gerrards Cross is a relatively small village, in 2014, a major national surveying company named Gerrards Cross as the most sought-after commuter town or village in their London Hot 100 report. As a result, Gerrards Cross is occasionally referred to as "mini Hollywood" due to the large number of celebrities that live there. If exclusive living in central London doesn't appeal to you, Gerrards Cross is regarded as being the most exclusive place to live in the UK outside of the capital city.
Property in Gerrards Cross has become extremely desirable for a number of reasons. There is quick and easy access to the M25 and M40 and it is approximately 17 miles (27km) from Central London. Gerrards Cross mainline railway station also provides a regular and direct service to London Marylebone with a fastest journey time of approximately 17 minutes. The fast access to London means Gerrards Cross is particularly popular with commuters that work in central London - it also means that if the local selection of shops isn't quite up to your requirements, a short hop to the vibrant shopping district of Oxford Street in London is always an option. As well as enjoying strong transport links to major UK cities by road, Gerrards Cross is only a 20 minute drive from Heathrow airport - one of the world's largest, busiest airports and a gateway to the world. Local residents agree that they enjoy a fantastic quality of life in the village, along with easy access to the capital city, London.
