    tbh it depends on how much you wanna pay for rent and what kind of area you wanna live in.

    DO NOT go south of the river

    Parts of the east end aren't too choice either especially Hackney and surrounding areas.

    Acton in West London is one to miss too.

    Have you any idea where abouts you need to be moving to?

    I wouldn't have any idea, I haven't been out of the US yet, watch out Viks and Terry I may show up at your doors. :tongue: But anyway, I hope you find the perfect place for you, good luck! :hug:

    i'd say east london. particularly brick lane. loads of cool places to shop and go out. also far away enough from the main bustle of the city to not drive you mad. but be carefulas some parts of east london are a little dangerous. london means have your wits about you in general though.

    Isn't Camden really expensive though? :unsure:

    I used to live in Camden (16 years to be precise) it can be pricey so might have to hunt round for cheap enough place, but its got a great bohemian atmosphere :smile:
    And if you happen to be catholic there is a wonderful church

    :mellow: what's wrong with south london? :mellow:
    you sound just like my gf :laugh:

    it depends on what you want. the east end is getting very trendy/expensive lots of rich art people thinking it's 'edgy' and moving in on it.

    london is generally very expensive to rent. like vikki said what kind of place do you want, a room? a flat?

    That's strange cause I did have camden in mine. I'll be social working over there for £23-24. Enough for Camden or east. Oh I am so excited! Thanks all. I really need a clean break and to get away.:biggrin:

    I didn't put in any criteria so just got random stuff..but basically you put in the area search and click rent.
    Then you can narrow it down by adding house/flat etc. furnished/unfurnished and what your price range is.
    I put in Camden but you can do it for any area you fancy.
