Hi, we are planning to move to England from Denmark. My husband got a job in Slough; and we have two small girls. We would like to live somewhere in London, preferably an area with good public schools. We´ve been looking for house prices in Wimbledon (near Wimbledon tube station, for example) and it seems to be affordable for us, and well communicated. However, I am afraid the commuting time will be too long. Google maps says it takes 45 minutes drive. And in a journey planner web site it says it could take between 50 min and 1,10 h, via Paddington and depending on the train you catch.
I wonder, are these travel times realistic?? Specially the driving time? Would one expect to encounter frequent traffic jams? Are tube/train timetables reliable?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated!!!!
