For all of us aspiring city slickers, where would you prefer to build or buy your castle.
Let me see, retire at 40 an move outside london, the only question is which of the surrounding counties to live in?
Which county do you prefer, please specify any particular towns.
I live in Herfordshire, and i attend the Haberdashers Askes school in Elstree.

"When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life"
that's a quote by some famous dude.
I don't think I would leave London until I have bagged me a nice Lord or rich person.....then hopefully we can retire...to Worthing ...or the Witterings...I am kidding, I'd rather live somewhere else like ....Cyprus

It was Samuel Johnson, I believe, but I may be wrong.

Well he was famous and I totally agree with him, though I could just be saying that a) Because I hope to move there this year b) Because I am young and have easy access to concerts and backstage passes that I can see regularly if in London c)Because I love Camden so mucchhhhhhh
d) Because when my parents come to visit we'll go to Harrods for lunch wooo
e)Because I truly believe London is the best city in the world, followed by Barcelona...

I'll stay in London for another few years but once I have enough money and experience, I will move to live in Milan and then Tokyo.

On the other hand you could tire of London on account of how uptight everyone is.

And there's no bloody woodland.
