Certainly, your overall cost of living in London will be influenced by where you choose to live, whether you opt for shared living and the type of lifestyle you lead.

When arranging accommodation, you will need to pay bond and usually your first month rent up front. You will have other setting up costs such as arranging (mobile) telephone connections.

Where to live in London

It is important to be mindful of commuting time when you are considering where to live in London. In the city centre, the tube system is a great way to get around, but check out the maps and review the zone system to get a better idea of your daily travel costs.

The public transport system in London makes use of the Oyster card, which is a plastic smart card that you can use for single journeys on the bus, Tube, tram, DLR and underground, as well as many National Rail services in London. You can purchase Oyster cards from most public transport ticket offices and travel information centres.

The good news is that the vast area of London has accommodation options to suit every type of expat budget and lifestyle. Rental prices in London can vary hugely across the city, from £600 per month to £4000 per month.

The northern areas of London are popular with expats and include Camden and Hamstead Heath. In the south, Greenwich and Clapham commonly sought areas, as well as the world famous Wimbledon. To the eastern side, you’ll find the Docklands and other popular east end areas. Shepherd’s Bush, Fulham and Chiswick are considered more affordable areas to the west.

Irish in London Finding an Irish community in London is not difficult. Certainly, there are Irish pubs all over the city and there is an extensive Irish expat network at your door.
