Hi my name's Dar. Not toooooo sure what to say in my introduction except that I'm going to be relocating to London in a few months time. I've been there a couple of times but only for short periods of time. After talking to friends and family who have or are living there, it seems like a good idea to start looking for a place to live now, even though I won't be there till summer. Wish me luck (I think I'll be needing it hehe)!!!!

Heya! Well I'm been back and forth between Ireland and Australia. Not too sure where I'll be working because I'm on the hunt right now. Hopefully I will be organised enough to have something lined when I arrive.

OK - I asked because where you work pretty much dictates where you choose to live in London, it all revolves around the commute.

I can imagine seeing as it's a massive city.
At this stage I'm contemplating about staying in a central flat in London (although what is central in London?) for a few months. It's only so I have the peace of mind knowing that it won't take me an age to get and from anywhere. Your thoughts?

Of course once I get more settled in, I can figure out what district I spend most of my time in and go from there? I'm hoping this is an alright way to go about it :D

Personally because I am in Pimlico I tend to define Central London much more tightly than other people. A loose definition would probably define it as anything inside the circle line.

Haha fair enough. Yeah I would say that the circle line is central enough. I would consider branching out Camden or Hammersmith/Kensington way but we'll see how it goes.

Well the other definition of Central London - which actually is the same as mine but with a bit south of the river added - is Zone 1.

This explains why I excluded Earls Court & Westwards - as they are in Zone 2 travel into the centre is more expensive. Camden, lovely as it is, is Zone 2.

Bearing in mind the high cost of renting property within Zone 1, paying a little extra to travel from Zone 2 might not be a bad idea.

That's true. I'll keep that in mind on my list. Cheers!
