Bloodbath is moving to London and has recently acquired his first "job" after graduation.
He will work near Mansion House and is looking to rent somewhere for less than £650pcm. He's not really sure which borough of London is for him and why he has decided to construct his sentences in the third person. 40 minutes would be the maximum he would want to travel to work. He doesn't know many people in London, so being somewhere where he can build a strong social base is crucial. Ideally the house/flat would have a nice private garden as he does love his green space very much. He also likes Georgian architecture but beggars can't be choosers.
Could someone please advise my dear friend? How does one build a strong social base 'ex-nihilo'?

1. Rent: £650 He can find places in Zone 3 for that price. But he will have to houseshare.
2. Mansion House? That's Boris Johnson's house. Are you sure that is your workplace?
3. Social base: your social contacts begin from your workplace and grow from there.
4. For £650 you ain't gonna get a great place. It will be something rather average (watch out for the mices!).

I'd be guessing £650 would probably get you something out in East London, probably not in a very nice neighbourhood either. Maybe you'd want to try somewhere out in Surrey or Kent? There's rather good transport connections through to Central London and to Boris' house.
Also, why are you speaking about yourself in third person?
