Yep - avoid Dagenham.

And Luton.

Probably the most sensible thing I've said on this site in ages.

I moved to reading a year ago and love it. 35mins on the train to paddington if you need to get into the city and lots of good road and MTB riding around the area. The Lookout at bracknell for MTB and the area north of caversham is great to road ride on.

typical rent 3 bed terrace is around £875 in the centre of town. one beds can go for around £650 - £700.

Town centre is good for shopping and lots of great restaurants.

Slough Windsor Maidenhead and Marlow will give you what you want though you will have a hike for commuting...

Lots of green areas out here though...

I've been looking at Hemel Hempstead. 30 mins to Eustion and seems nice.

What side of London are you trying to commute to?

If you are interested out east then Theydon Bois and Epping are quite nice.
