A company has got in touch with me recently for a job, it's in Manchester. I am just temping at the moment and looking for a proper job. I'm down south just outside of London. The problem is I don't know anyone there. Is it a good place to live? I went there once to visit a friend studying there and I heard about students getting mugged. I thought the uni seemed nice but the city centre was a bit rough tbh. But idk, I mean is it okay or is it as grim as people say it is.

London is more dangerous than Manchester so you might as well

The main worry would be not finding friends. I went there literally once on the coach and if I'm going to be honest I found the city centre around piccadilly which is where the bus station to the uni was very scary and really rough, just weirdos eveywhere. apart from that I didn't see any of the city as I spent the weekend with my friend at the uni and going to the pubs in the uni area which seemed alright. Just worried about going there and not finding friends and getting mugged or something.

It's not bad but it's not great either. It's a big city centre, sprawling, always over-busy IMO and I just don't like the general craic of the place

It's not that unsafe, mind
