I'm going to move to England in the fall so around September. I'm going to be doing a workterm there for a newspaper after finishing up my journalism degree here in Canada. I was thinking of going to Bristol or Oxford but I don't know how expensive it is to live there. Anyone have any tips?? or info? ANything is appreciated!
£600 a month is a REAL stretch.
Even if you do cook your own food and by some lucky lucky chance find a place to rent for £50 a week.
Keeping in mind that any room you do rent at that price will be in pretty scummy area.
For travel purposes you want to try and steer clear of living outside zone 2. Sometimes you can spend hours travelling in and about London on an average day.
Tube ticket from zone 1 - 2 is £24.30 a week.
I would recommend more along the lines of £900 - £1000.
London is VERY expensive.
