In city centre Manchester you'd be looking at around £650 per month for a one bedroom place but in the suburbs it's generally cheaper. A 1 bedroom could be anything from £400 to £550 depending on which area you're in. Let me know if you do decide on Manchester as I can advise you on some nice areas and which ones to avoid!

Have a look at Rightmove for apartments - it's the main property website here for renting as well as buying.

Hello again :),

So, I have decided lol... I have chosen Manchester I have reserved my plane ticket for May 22nd where I will arrive at London stay there for about 2 days and try to head on to Manchester. Can anyone please help me on what’s the best way to travel to Manchester from London with all my luggage’s and also what should be the first steps in settling down, neighborhoods for flats that are safe and not so expensive, works etc... Thanks in advance!!!

Hi Naki

The quickest way to get from London to Manchester is by train (see Virgin Trains. ) but this isn't normally the cheapest way. Megabus and National Express offer cheap bus tickets and the journey takes around 5 hours. If you decide on the train the cheapest tickets tend to be available around 2 months in advance so I'd recommend booking soon.

I will send you a personal message regarding some of the other stuff you mentioned.

From what I have read, the economy is worse than here (the U.S.A). No jobs, and inflation is starting to take off.

Im not sure on how stable the current US economy is, so i cant compare.

There are jobs here though, wont have any trouble finding work.

You should move to Edinburgh, Scotland. That is where i live and its amazing. City life here is great. We have one of the best bus services in Britain, bars, restaurants and loads of jobs available. Great city but very busy with tourists :)
