What to Expect in London
It might seem like a scary thing - moving to such a huge place, maybe without knowing a single soul - but London is so crammed full of travellers that it's a very easy place to find your feet and get set up.
There is a well-established traveller's community in London consisting mainly of Australians, New Zealanders and South Africans who have come in search of good times and to earn the mighty UK pound. Because of this, London is a unique place for travellers to live and work as most people who come here on a two year working holiday visa tend to stay for the full two years. This gives you a chance to really get to know people over a long period of time, creating relationships and memories that really last.
If you're broke, there are loads of free museums and great walks around the city passing by famous landmarks.
London is a busy place but full of anything you could hope for. Any activity you want can be found here somewhere - any club, sports group, language course, art class... anything! If you want them to be, every day can be filled with activites, or you can just chill at home with your new friends or head down to the local pub for some quiet pints and watch some football. If you're broke, there are loads of free museums and great walks around the city passing by famous landmarks. I guess what I'm trying to say is that there's always something to do here, so you'll never be bored.
If the city seems to be getting too much to bear, as it sometimes can, then there are loads of parks around and lots of places within the UK to escape to. Even better... flights between London and most major cities in Europe are cheap, so escaping for a weekend or longer isn't going to blow your budget.
