The boroughs where house prices are lower because there are more Greggs bakeries

Whether it’s a steak pasty, a sugared jam doughnut, a bean and cheese melt or a (vegan?) sausage roll…

We all love treating ourselves to something from Greggs.

The dream is to have one as close to home as possible, to fulfil all our sweet and savoury desires.

Having such quick access to some of our favourite amenities is something we normally expect to pay quite the price for.

But what if we told you, that the closer you are to a Greggs in London, the less you could be paying to live?

A new study by Tea and Coffee has uncovered correlations between house prices and the density of the UK’s favourite coffee house chains.

The study found that, across the nation, house prices are influenced by the density of coffee houses located in the area.

So, in areas where house prices are higher, you tend to see more Starbucks and Pret a Manger cafes.

But in places where house prices are lower, you’ll find more Greggs and Muffin Break shops.

The question is, where in London can we get cheap living and rapid access to brownies and bakes?

3. Havering

Havering in East London borough has one of the highest densities of Greggs bakeries in London, with 3.47 bakeries per 100,000 people.

2. Hounslow

Next up we go to Hounslow in West London, where there are 3.68 bakeries per 100,000 residents.

1. Enfield

And Enfield in North London is crowned the Royal Borough of Greggs Bakeries, with 5.07 bakeries per 100,000 people making for the highest densities of Greggs in the city.

The best part is that all three boroughs have an average house price of just £387,000, meaning you can save on property, and invest in what matters…

For those of you who are more into your flat whites and Frappucinos, the data says you’ll want to head to areas with higher house prices.

Westminster, Camden and Kensington and Chelsea are the three London boroughs which have the highest density of Starbucks – the average house price here being around £1,111,000.

And if you’re all about ditching the brands and supporting your local man, research says Bromley, Kingston and Richmond are the ‘Independent Coffeeshop Hotspots’ for you.
