    You should move here? I hear Birmingham is grim?... Do you really want to be living in a grim place?

    the buzz and and city itself is something beyond Il ever experience in Ireland.

    but I like the simple things too. and money wise theres no future in london. its a temporary stop.

    The smaller english cities must have something to offer.

    ...the staff looked proper Chinese, then opened their mouths and a proper cockney accent would come out...
    Wot do u mean 'proper Chinese' ?! R u being RACIST ?!
    Wot's wrong wid an East Asian speaking fluent English?! wud u bat an eyelid at an ethnic African or South Asian who can speak fluent English in London?! There! Why are u so racist?! Y do u assume all East Asians are Chinese!? Haven't u heard of other East Asian ethnicities apart from Chinese, such as Korean, Vietnamese...etc?! Do u also assume all ethnic Africans are Nigerians and all South Asians are Indians?! U need to stop being so RACIST n narrow-minded!

    Yeah, it depends where you live. Like stay away from Handsworth lol
    But the center and other parts are nice
    Like you get the big city vibe but it's nowhere as vibrant as London.

    Don't panic. You can find much cheaper places if you look a bit harder, and if you steer clear of agents - I have never paid an admin fee in my life for any property I rented, neither have many of my friends. Property is expensive but there are many opportunities, and many people who live in a shared flat at half the price you site above. You have to know where and how to look. For example, if you look to rent somewhere on the central line it will be way cheaper than if you look on the piccadilly line, etc. Unfortunately you can't avoid the deposit and the transport costs are a killer so it's better not to commute very far.

    I thought you were going to be in Yorkshire though, rather than London? Feel free to give me a shout if not.
    I was just looking at jobs. I thought £25K was a good salary, but it's not enough for central London...

    This isn't really true. There are virtually no more run down flats ands finitely no slums in tower hamlets anymore. Ever since the olympics, the run down council flats have been replaced with new better ones and some of the better quality old ones still remain. It is definitely not disgusting or decrepit anymore. It is still poor but people still have a decent standard of living there.
    I went there a few days ago, the east end is truly third world.

    and another thing


    People talk about London's amazing pubs (Seven stars off Fleet Street, with their cat who wears an Elizabethan ruff), as much as I like cats, it's all soul-less hipsterism. I'm not much a of a drinker I must say, but I would be far more impressed by a rustic tavern, full of fisherman and tweed wearing farmers, where the cider is made from apples the landlord grew on his own orchard and the beer was created in the good man's garage which had been converted to a microbrewery.

    Yeah, I love the multicultural vibe too, especially right before 9am and after 5pm.

    Haha so true. During rush hour, London goes from minority white to majority white.

    Where I live is pretty boring but I love Central London to pieces mainly because of the food and how there's always something to do.

    And the nightlife is pretty amazing..
