Three Oxfordshire areas named among best places to live outside London

A survey conducted by the Telegraph, with the help of Savills Estates, gathered data on the 100 most popular stations by passenger footfall within 90 minutes of London, which require no change of trains to reach the capital.

Affordable housing, school Ofsted ratings, green space, the reputation of pubs and restaurants, along with ticket and travel time based on information from National Rail suggested that Oxford, Didcot and Banbury are some of the places to live.
