Living in West Drayton, is a good access to central London, 20 minutes to Paddington by train, there is a train every 10-15 mins. Many trains to Reading and Oxford too. Close to Heathrow, but without the noise pollution. Esay access M4, M25 motorways. Only a couple of miles from Uxbridge town center, with 2 big shopping center, restaurants and night life. West Drayton isn't the poshest area, but has improved a lot in the last few years and it's getting better and better with more facilities, green areas, nurseries, business parks etc...

We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area.
You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page.
We hope this helps.

I moved to West Drayton this year and so far the experience hasn't been great. Unfortunately people are not prepared to have people from other nationalities living in the area.
I've been more than one occasion getting verbal abuse either on the bus or at Tesco!

Excellent local amenities for a village this size. Everything is within a short drive / walk: supermarkets, bank, post-office, church, council libraries, schools, train and bus stations. Plenty of green and open spaces. Close to M25, M4 and good connections to Uxbridge, Hounslow, Slough, Reading, Oxford, Heathrow and West London (Ealing & Paddington). Crossrail station to open in 2018. Currently a lot of investment going on developing high-spec apartments. Traffic can be bad at peak times especially near train station and some previously rundown areas are still slowly recovering. Train overcrowding into London at rush-hour is disgraceful (operator only offers excuses! - hopefully Crossrail will sort that out soon),
