I am trying to find out what parts of London are really like before I move there for a year. I have been on www.anovelguide.com which I thought was good, are there any other quirky sites about England or London.
Thanks

James

I dont know any sites as such, only from personal experience really as Ive been living here in London almost 4 years now.Once you figure out where you want to live, check out www.gumtree.com for houseshares, renting flats and stuff, they are great, actually the house Im living in at the moment i found on there!also they have job listing and all sorts on there its a really useful site!As for the area I guess it would all depend on what you are looking for, where u need to be close to.......

Hi James,

I too have been living in London for about 4 years and no website or book will tell you where to have the best time or the best place to live. There are some great places in London, but it depends on your interests and what kinda things your into. Its best just to live it and see or ask people. If you have any questions just private mail me.

Lou.

What are your interests?
What type of person are you?
Etc

What's the 'real London' for one person might not be the real London for me and vice versa, as long as you like a huge urban jungle you'll find something in London but until you are a bit specific I can't really help you
