    I'd like to know approximately how much it would cost to live in London for 4 months. I am having an argument with my dad about this. He says it would cost at least £10,000 and thinks I am a 'complete fool' to think it would cost any less than that. I keep saying that £10,000 is far too much (most graduate salaries barely cover that) and £5,000 is a more realistic figure.

    Impossible to answer. It depends where in London. For example, rent is more expensive in central than it is in north west.

    I can't possibly tell you. You're better off doing you're own research and looking at how much renting in each area is.

    Also would you be renting or staying in a hotel/hostel. It's incredibly difficult to get a short term let in London, as one of my friends found out. She had to move around hostels. Would you be earning money whilst you were in London? I live on 1,300pm living in zone 2.
