The United Kingdom, made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, is an island nation in north western Europe. With a population of over 66 million the United Kingdom is a place with great opportunities to live, work or study. The capital city is London in the South east of England which is one of the most expensive places to live, with soaring property and rental prices. The UK is home to a number of other well-known cities such as Manchester, famed for its football teams, Liverpool, home of the Beatles, and Edinburgh in Scotland.
The UK has great transport links into Europe and the rest of the world and houses some of the best airports. Heathrow is the busiest airport in the UK, with 72.3 million passengers and accounts for 30% of all air passengers in Britain. There are also 14 other major international airports across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland making it easy to travel to and from the UK using the world’s leading airlines.
Choosing the best place to live in the UK depends entirely on your circumstances. If you are a student then there is a great choice of world class universities situated throughout the country such as Oxford, Cambridge, London, Manchester, Leeds & Liverpool.
For professionals all of the major cities offer something slightly different. London being the most expensive place to live, but you will also find rents and property prices rising fast in Northern cities such as Manchester and Liverpool.
We recommend researching areas that are popular with young professionals and families in your chosen city, and speak to people on social media and forums to get their recommendations on the best places to live and work.
