What Nobody Will Tell You About London

The good, the bad and the ugly of Old Blighty

Everyone’s here to ‘be a creative’

This is not the town of romance

Brexit confuses everyone

Forever an ‘acquaintance’, never a ‘friend’

There is a lot of necessary bureaucracy… no way around it

Everybody’s hustling, so get ready

Nobody is going to just offer you help

On the up side…

There are all kinds of people to meet

The travel opportunities are awesome

Every part of London is unique

The food and the coffee is a lot better than you’d think

You will not be as stimulated anywhere else — and much of it is free

The chance that you will get to do what you want to do is very possible

Some final words of advice…
