Travel Forums Europe Renting an apt in London

hey all,

I'm going to London, on a work holidaymaker visa,
and everything's settled.. ive got a job, tix, visa, bank acct..
just that I'm still looking for a place there with my boyfren.
We'r going to view flats when we get there,
but hopefulli we'll find something good and cheap, fast. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! I'll be working in Harrow, so somewhere in Northwest London would be great. Do you think it's MUCH cheaper if we live outside london, but will it be inconvenient to travel to Harrow? Any good websites to recommend? We'r thinking of renting a studio, where we get the whole place to ourselves, instead of sharing a flat with others.

Thanks in advance!

Heya

I found a place in one day on www.gumtree.com - if you spot something good value and in a great location, view it and snap it up immediately as they go very very fast. You may need to move 3 or more times before you're happy though.

Good luck
A ;)
