When moving to London there are many things to consider, as choosing to relocate is a big decision involving cost, time and organising accommodation.
Here are five things to consider before you move:
Plan your accommodation
Finding accommodation in London can be difficult if you are looking for low priced accommodation as property prices can be expensive. Researching different areas in depth is a good way to start as you will see a difference in price between each area.
If you are looking for accommodation on a budget, it is important that you look into flat shares as it will be much more reasonable for you to contribute towards rent, than it will be for you to pay the total amount per month.
In London, it is very easy to get from place to place but this can also be a costly process. The tube system is the best way to travel in London as it allows you to take a trip to any area within a short period of time.
The bus system is also very reliable as there are bus stops in all areas, almost every few minutes making all areas of the city very accessible during both night and day.
Roads are very busy in London so if you are prepared to deal with the queues during peak rush hour times then you will be able to travel to any destination.
London also has fantastic cycling routes which allow you to get around whilst exercising at the same time. Many workers in London commute to work as it saves them a substantial amount in fuel and transport costs.
With a fantastic wealth of shops including many high-end designer stores, theatres, monuments and the superb Buckingham Palace there are many things to do that will ensure you won’t be bored. If you do your research there are also many free activities to be found in the city!
If you are looking to move to a big city to find more work, London is home to many industries and provides great opportunities for people at graduate level to more experienced workers.
If you are looking to improve your knowledge of history and cultures London is home to many museums and exhibition centres which will allow you to improve and expand your knowledge. If you are looking to take a degree or gain new qualifications there are also many establishments that can help you achieve your goals.
