Famous for its film studios, Shepperton is a Thames-side gem, within easy commuting distance of Central London, yet still offering great value for money and community spirit.
Shepperton High Street has a villagey feel, with independent shops, cafes and pubs. The train station has direct links to Waterloo, and there's a regular bus service to nearby areas of Staines and Sunbury, as well as Heathrow Airport. The M3 runs close by, and the M25 is only a couple of miles away.
There's every type of property available in Shepperton, from grand multi-million-pound houses to terraces and apartments: one of the newest developments is Katrina House, on the High Street, which offers one- and two-bed flats. Shepperton's primary and secondary schools are rated 'good', including Thamesmead School, the local secondary, which specialises in music and arts.
