Why I Love Living & Working in London

Wednesday, 14 September 2016


Whilst for some the thought of living or working in London fills them with dread, for me I love it. I know a lot of people find it too busy and congested to live or work here, but I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. Having previously moved to Norwich for three years for uni, I really missed the buzz of London and now that I’ve got a full time job here, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

1./Everything is on your doorstep
This is the cliché term that everyone uses when referring to London, but I really do think it's true. I never have to go far for what I'm looking for, whether that's a particular shop, restaurant or attraction etc.

2./There’s so much to explore
Tying in with the above comment, there's so much to do in London, that you're never short of things to fill your weekends with, I couldn't imagine not having a huge amount choice of things to do at the weekends. 

3./There are so many opportunities 
There are so many jobs in London that it opens a whole host of opportunities. Particularly in the industry I'm in, 90% of the jobs are in the capital so if I didn't live in London, I definitely don't think I'd be in the career I'm in. 

4./There is always something going on
Even if you do get bored of all that London has to offer, there are always events, pop up stores / restaurants, gigs etc going on, it's never hard to find something a bit different. 

5./It can be pretty too
I know a lot of people are put off by the perceived lack of 'greenery' in London, but it actually has a lot to offer. There are so many really pretty parks that help you to escape the busyness of London life. Primrose Hill is probably my favourite as it has stunning views, but there's also Hyde Park, Regents Park and St James' Park to name but a few central ones. If you're visiting London, I definitely recommend checking one of them out. 

So that's why I love living and working in London. Yes I'll probably never be able to buy my own house and yes it is very busy, but I could never live anywhere else.
