The Top 10 Commuter Towns 2013

Many families crave space, a bigger garden or a less noisy neighbourhood and it is not surprising that many of us find ourselves living in one of the thousands of towns or villages that surround our major cities. One of the major drawbacks to making such a move is that many of us still rely on the city for work and economic necessity means a daily commute for many of us.
