To be fair, if you've got the money, there's only a handful of cities in the entire world where you can do more things than in London.(Original post by ByEeek)
Yeah - I don't get the draw of London. People seem so focused on the all important career, they forget about the joys of life. I just don't get it.
I think also a lot of people like the cosmopolitan feel of the city. I don't mean diverse as in Luton or Oldham where it's Mirpuri mandem but actual diversity and cosmopolitan feel.
Plus the money and salaries are bigger in London but of course whether you get much bang for your buck is debatable when you're paying extortionate rates for everything.
London is a mega city with mega options to do things but I know quite a few people thinking of heading to places like Manchester, Newcastle etc. problem is work is harder to come by up North. A lot if it seems to be either highly skilled or minimum wage type stuff. Whereas in London getting a job is easy
From budgets to cutbacks...
