Slough in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... look worse then it is, i have had no problem walking a 15 minute walk from the Train Station back home in the early hours of the morning. You have some lovely surrounding areas such as Stoke poges, George Green , some parts of Wexham and Fulmer. Slough train station has fast connections to London and Reading, it takes 10 minutes to get to paddington so its easy to commute. The schools here are good i walked away from Langleywood with high GCSE's and that was appaerently a bad school so i say never judge a book by its cover i had the best teachers there.The shopping isn't the best here however you have all you basic shops eg. New Look, Tops... more

I have lived in slough for years personally i dont think it is that bad If you keep yourself out of trouble. I think the likes of Road Wars makes it look worse then it is, i have had no problem walking a 15 minute walk from the Train Station back home in the early hours of the morning.

****Reputation**** It always seems to me that pretty much anytime anybody brings up the subject of Slough a certain famous poet laureate's work from 1937 invariably gets a mention, alongside it being the setting for that widely regarded cringe-worthy "The Office" ****My perspective**** Now, I'll be honest, my connections with Slough are purely work related, my experiences with Slough therefore limited to hotel stays, town centre strolls, restaurant meals and the like. That said, having been a regular visitor of the last few years on various multiple month dragging IT assignments frankly too mind-numbing and tedious ... Read the complete review

Not a name that makes you think of nice things perhaps. For that we can blame John Betjeman. It was he who wrote: Come, friendly bombs, and fall on Slough It isn't fit for humans now, There isn't grass to graze a cow Swarm over, Death! Come, bombs, and blow to smithereens Those air-conditioned bright canteens, Tinned fruit, tinned meat, tinned milk, tinned beans, Tinned minds, tinned breath. Mess up the mess they call a town - A house for ninety-seven down And once a week a half-a-crown For twenty years, And get that man with double chin Who'll always cheat and always win, Who ...

I and my partner have the misfortune to live in Slough. Jobs keep us here and house prices rising so fast stop us leaving too. The main town - with it's newish shopping area is functional, but with the hospital miles away, major places of business stretched along the A4 and no sensible means of getting around, it's an awful place to live. I say sensible - there is an extensive service of buses run by Beeline and London United - but they are always late, sometimes don;t appear, overpriced, crowded, dirty etc that I usually walk as much as I can. The 24hr Tesco is always packed, as is downtown all day and all weekend. I wouldn;t ... Read the complete review
