Top 10 Greater London Locations

It's not surprising that no London location makes it into the national Top 20 for 2014, largely prohibited by the cost of property in the capital. However as 13% of the UK population live in the capital (source ONS October 2013), we have also ranked the best locations in Greater London.

The top three postcodes making it to the top of the list for 2014 are DA5 (Bexley), SM7 (Banstead) and KT17 (Epsom) whilst unsurprisinlgy no inner-London postcodes made it onto the list.

Bexley is nestled right on the border of Kent in the South East and is the second year in a row that Bexley village has been crowned the winner of the Hotspots Greater London list owing it's success to outstanding school education results and attractive property prices.

The second place goes the pretty village of Banstead in Surrey which boasts a history that goes back over 1,000 years. Whilst Epsom Green's exceptional Key Stage 2 results puts it neatly into the third slot.
