Print this page

It might seem like a scary thing - moving to such a huge place, especially one so large and diverse as London, but the capital is full of like-minded people in the same position.
London is a fantastic place to live and work thanks to its culturally diverse, vibrant and dynamic nature.
It fuses traditional influences with modern design and promises to offer a fast-paced, exciting lifestyle and, as one of the biggest cities in Europe, is at the centre of all that is going on in business and entertainment.
Whether you are a recent graduate, a young professional, a student, or you are coming from overseas there are some essentials that you need to think about before you make your big move to the city.

Earn some money!

It is important when moving to London to bear in mind the location of any prospective job.
It would be useful to use the location of your employer to work out where in the capital you are looking to live.
You can live a fair distance away from work, but you might want to choose to live on a particular tube line for instance which will make your journey in the mornings and afternoons hassle free.
If gainful employment has so far eluded you, do not worry. There are plenty of opportunities to get work in the capital and it is just a case of dedicating a bit of time to finding one.
Overseas visitors must first ensure that they get themselves a National Insurance number before seeking work.

Getting somewhere to stay

It your accommodation has already been sorted before the big move it is likely to be a big weight off your shoulders.
Whether you are staying with a friend or have your own place chances are space is going to be at a minimum. As such, it may be worth considering taking advantage of self storage facilities.
Here you can arrange to keep big, bulky items in a lock up which you can access at any time without cluttering your own personal space.
However, if accommodation has not been finalised it is worth checking out some of the amazing selection of temporary accommodation which London has to offer.
There is any number of temporary accommodation options available for travellers and they can be tailored to cater for any budget, from hotels, hostels, or empty student rooms over the school holidays there is sure to be something to suit everyone's needs.

Get familiar with your surroundings

London is a big place. As such it is definitely worth taking the time to explore what there is to offer around the city.
The seemingly never-ending array of underground tube tunnels and winding backstreets can present visitors, and even residents, with a constant headache.
But, stick at it and you will find that the public transportation system is one of the best in the world and can take you anywhere you want to go quickly and easily.
Whatever you find when moving to London individuals can be assured that there is never a dull moment in the capital.
There is always something to do, someplace to go or something to see and with a diverse range of activities taking place in and around the city that there is no chance of ever finding yourself with nothing to do.
