London Fish

Moving to London from the U.S. Can anyone point me to “where to live” type resources? Doing the usual googling, but appreciate any tips or known resources out there. Work will be near London Bridge.

Unfortunately for me, googling didn’t really help. Pictures don’t do justice to places and every neighbourhood is so different that you need to walk the streets your self. My recommendation is to set aside 4-7 days and see as many places as you can. Bidding for rental places can be very competitive, so you can’t count on your first pick.

A bunch of new luxury tower blocks have popped up around Aldgate, Poplar & Canary Wharf in the last few years that offer fancy style with a short commute if you want that. Being east means that if you swap to a firm in the wharf means the travel won’t suck.

Rightmove have a tool that shows you all the areas/properties based on your desired commute to a specific location. It’s quite useful as it factors in how you want to be travelling too

Aldgate is a good shout if you’re by tower bridge.

Shoreditch or Horton if your a hipster. Notting hill, south ken, Bayswater if you’re more of a conventional banker type

Findproperly is a great website I used which sorts by commute time, not distance. You can use it to find a whole lot of new areas. There are loads of places which look really far on the map but the trains go to London bridge really quickly, meaning the commute is a higher quality too.

I don’t know about you folks, but as an employee - I don’t think I should have to pay for GT swag. At a minimum, give us at least one decent and quality item for free once a year.
