Back to the dark ages
IT’S official. It’s quicker to travel by horse and cart than it is to navigate London traffic. Transport for London figures show that central London buses travel at an average of 3.8mph and Londoners waste more than 100 hours sitting still (in their cars) per year. As such, say Quintessentially Estates, high-net-worth buyers, who would have previously relied on a chauffeur, are increasingly looking to properties close to Tube and bus stops. Crossrail and HS2 will have a major effect, too.
