I am moving from the states within the next month or so to London and I would like to know the best areas to live. I am currently looking in chelsea, south ken, notting hill, and knightsbridge.

Put it this way, you either need a massive loan or your daddy needs a massive company to be thinking of those places.

well, I must live in London because this is where I will be studying. And I will certainly not be using a loan.

Why do you need to be so central in London? If you look further afield and commute you could save yourself a lot of money and still end up in a nice house, and you'd probably get a garden!!

you do realise that buying a house in those areas would cost a minimum of the best part of a million? surely if you're staying there as a student you can rent accomodation?


Edit: sorry i read your post incorrectly, you didn't say you wanted to buy a property. those are all very nice areas. knightsbridge is where harrods is, if you've heard of it..! south kensington is where a few student halls of residences are, but most students renting choose a property a bit further away due to the cost.

Don't go to London! That is the worse part of the UK you can visit!

Yes, I will be renting, not buying. Again I must live central london for uni. Money isn't really an issue... more or less. I can spend around 600 pounds per week on rent.

I really like London, I live about a 45 minute train jourmey from the centre and often visit to shop along Oxford Street. If you are lucky, your Uni may be near a mainline station, in which case commuting wouldn't be that much of a hassle

I'm spending 60 a week on rent next year and I'll need to work 20 hours a week and take out a 4 grand loan. You are a very lucky person.
