My name is Nadia and next year I'll be 18 years old and I have been seriously thinking about moving to London England at the end of next year. I was just wondering if you guys have any suggestions aboiut where exactly to move, how the life is out there, how do you get a job out there when you are an american citizen and all that stuff.

Depends on what your tastes are, London is a big place. Let us know what you are going to be looking for in terms of interests, music, employment, atmosphere, etc. It will be easier for us to help you.

I'm pretty sure it's not that difficult if you're from the US and A to get a job/visa/work permit here.

Hi Nadia,
yes it is actually very hard if ur an Americano....i myself - from the USA as well - spent years tryin to make it over. One way is to apply for a BUNAC permit if ur a student. I applied for Graduate University here in the UK and have since got a job and settled finally!

Depends on what u wanna do for tend and u can stay for alteast 90 days - otherwise u may have to find a company to sponsor you. Altho - since alot of Americans want to leave the USA - there has been ALOT of posts throught the archives concerning this topic. Try doin a search and youll find other Americans who have posted the same question.

Hey Nadine, saw your photo, when you turn 18 you can work at my friends Restaurant in the Broadway-Fulham area and use a spare tiny flat we have there. -snip Zoom

There are lots of nice places to live in and around London. I personally like Clapham, Richmond and Kentish Town. However, Nadia, London is horrendously expensive so it would be quite wise to try and get a job (even if only temporary) organised before you turn up.
Not sure how it all works with visa's etc either unfortunately.
