Anyone moved to London?
Just wanted to know if anyone had any experiences of moving to London to live / work?
Its something I've thought about for a while as the industry I work in is dying locally, but is currently booming in London. The back end of last year I worked weekends for a company in Brentford and really enjoyed it, my wife was coming with me and we were staying in Chiswick which was lovely.
In the past a couple of things have put me off, one was that I didnt want to have a family and raise them in London but as my wife has just had IVF thats failed thats now looking unlikely. The other reason is, London itself scares me a bit! I currently live in a tiny hamlet of less than 20 houses on the outskirts of a town I grew up in. I know every inch of the area, the town and the surrounding hills. I've been to London 20+ times but the thought of living there, getting the tube to work etc. is really daunting.
Is it really as bad / difficult as I think?
