Four towns in south east London and north Kent have been ranked as some of London's top commuter hotspots.

According to research by TotallyMoney, Erith. Swanley and Gravesend are three of the top ten best spots for commuters working in London.

TotallyMoney defined commuter hotspots by looking at average house prices, length of commute into London by train, cost of an annual season ticket and life satisfaction.

Gravesend and Swanley took fifth and ninth place in the top ten, with cheaper than average house prices - but season tickets are significantly more expensive than their rivals.

Erith came in highest for south east London, and fifth overall behind Cheshunt, Waltham Cross and Purfleet.

Erith offers residents a journey time of 38 minutes and a life satisfaction rating of 7.77 out of ten.

Ebbsfleet featured just outside the top ten, coming in eleventh place as it offers the shortest commute time.

TotallyMoney head of brand and communications Joe Gardiner said: "Like so many decisions, finding your perfect home is about balancing what's important.

"While house prices have a massive impact on where people buy, it's not the only influencing factor. We hope our research will open people's eyes to locations they might not have thought of previously."
