Woah, you don't have school at this age? I'm moving temporary in London in three years to work for three months, and travel around for a bit. Still thinking about the date.

Hey all!
I'm the guy going with china_cat to England, and it looks like we've pretty much decided on Brighton for our initial stop!
I don't think we plan on staying put in Brighton the whole year, it just seems like a good start.
Thanks for all the replies!

Head to the north (ish) Manchester, Leeds area, big cities would be able to find work, but the perks are the Peaks, the lakes, easy access to Ireland and Scotland - and far cheaper living that the south

What are your thoughts on living in Leeds or Sheffield?
I've heard good things about these up and coming cities, as they are not as big as London and are receive a lot of inner city investment/redevelopment.

I'm in my early/mid 20s and looking for a city with good nightlife, concerts, pubs, restaurants, young people etc.

what is the sate of business relates job oportunities and real estate?

To the person who said earlier that Birmingham is the second city please know that in actual fact MANCHESTER is the second city!

Birmingham is alot bigger than Manchester, but size does not always matter! ;)

London is nice, but there is much to see here in the north of England too...

And to the one who said MAnchester is 'rough' no idea what s/he is talking about... North London is not rough?? Anyway... There are 'rough' parts in Manchester no doubt, but tell me one major city in the UK that does not have such areas!

England is a fab place and I am sure you will enjoy your stay wherever you go!

If I Was you I would visit all the major cities here, they are not that big and could easily be viewed in your year here

Enjoy your stay here in the UK, wish you the best!

Leeds and Sheffield are both pretty good. I'm particularly fond of Leeds, it has a really good music scene etc. Starting to get a bit pricey compared to other places up North but still cheaper than London.
