Living in London is not always easy, fun or cheap. Correction – it is never cheap! That is why some people choose to leave it and move to another town or city in the UK. If you feel like leaving the capital and relocating to a place like Bristol, for instance, we can’t really blame you. After all, London is crazy expensive, crowded and noisy. Plus, there are a few moving companies such as Andy Removals that will provide you with low-cost removal services to Bristol. And yet, you can’t deny there are many other things about the English capital which you will miss. If you can’t think of any, we will point you out not one, not two but five different things which you will really miss about London like:
- The London Underground
- The countless restaurants and coffee shops
- The swarms of tourists
- The numerous museums and landmarks which you can visit
- The opportunity to shop for anything until you drop
Even if you think that you hate some of these things (such as the never-ending influx of visitors), we give you not more than a week before you will realise how much you have loved London.
Londoners love to complain about their public transport, especially when it comes to the Tube. Most people who live in the capital will tell you that the London Underground is always running late and that commuting takes them ages. In reality, however, the UK capital has one of the best public transport systems in the world but most Londoners realise that only after they move out of the city and to a place where there are no night-time public transportation options, for instance.
The English capital is a heaven for food lovers. It is filled to the brim with various restaurants, pubs, cafes, food stalls, etc. No matter where in the city you live, there is at least one good eatery that is not more than 5 minutes away from your home.
All the tourists
You may find that hard to believe right now but you will even miss the tourists in London. Why? Well, because there is something nice about living in a place that so many people dream of visiting. The enthusiasm of tourists can make you feel lucky even if the grandeur of Westminster Abbey and the Buckingham Palace no longer impresses you.
The many places you can explore
Speaking of sights and landmarks, those come in abundance in a city like London. Even if you have visited all the key museums, parks and attractions in the capital, if you go to a more remote part of Greater London, you will find many more hidden gems. Weekends in this city are never boring.
The shopping scene
Even if you are not a shopaholic, you probably love all the shopping opportunities that London has to offer. You don’t need to go to Oxford Street or Bond Street to shop until you drop. What is more, you do not even need to spend a fortune when you do that. There are all types of stores in the English capital and bargain hunting is always on.
Already feel like you miss London. Our advice is to keep the contact details of a trusted removals company in Southfields SW18, SW19 or in any other part of the city in case you decide to move back to the capital.
