19 things only people who’ve moved to London will understand

17th March 2015

Moving to London can be exciting, fascinating, daunting and exhausting all in one go.

Everyone who moves to the capital goes through the same things: making new friends, finding your way around and maybe even finding a job are just the start.

A lot of people in thinking bob have moved to London, so we understand what it’s like. In fact, it’s our job to understand!

Here are 19 things every new Londoner experiences when they move to the capital…
