Croydon has been named one of the best London boroughs for working families to live in 2024.

Research from Making Moves, London-based property specialists, ranked the south London borough as the third best area for working families to live due to several factors.

These include low average monthly rent, high numbers of schools and open jobs, and lots of parks.

Croydon has a high number of primary and secondary schools compared to most London boroughs, with 108 primary and 56 secondary schools.

The commute was also mentioned as one of the reasons it made the top three, with the average journey into central London taking just 43 minutes.

Sally Evans, the director of operations at Making Moves, said: "Being situated in London is hugely beneficial for work as companies encourage office returns."

She added that living in these top boroughs while working in the city provides "an excellent work-life balance".

Ms Evans said: "It's about a short travel time to the office, access to green space, excellent air quality, education, and low crime rates."

The data from Making Moves also highlighted other outstanding boroughs for working families to live.

Top of the list was Bromley, with Barnet, Ealing and Richmond upon Thames making up the rest of the top five.

The other boroughs recognised were Hillingdon, Redbridge, Hounslow, Greenwich, and Merton.
