  2. 2. In a big, busy cosmopolitan city like London, it is not so surprising to see many young people wanting to live and work there. After all, lots of opportunities and unique experiences await those who want to live in a culturally diverse city. Like any other relocation, it takes much planning and preparation to make it easier, especially for millennials who are looking to make the most of their stay in the Old Smoke. It certainly helps to have an idea what it is like to live there. Exploring the City It is better to imagine London as a community of several smaller towns, each with its own characteristics. When exploring the city, most locals advise knowing the culture of each area, the layout and community hubs, and tempering their expectations. This allows them to adjust living in the city easier.
  3. 3. Volunteering for Accommodations For those who are not in a rush to find a full-time job, volunteering might be a good idea. Some hostels offer shared accommodations in exchange for volunteering duties several hours per week. It is a great way for them to know about the community and get training as well. Making New Friends Londoners come from all walks of life. While meeting new people can be intimidating at first, there are many ways to make new friends. One can join interest groups or special classes to meet like-minded people. Some hostels also foster a friendly atmosphere where tenants can mingle with other tenants.

New residents can also get a tastecard that can get them half-price discounts at select restaurants. Dame Vivienne Westwood said it right: ‘There is nowhere else like London’. With its rich history, diverse culture, and modern lifestyle, the allure of living in the Old Smoke is irresistible.
