Depends on what work you do, how far you wish to commute, and what your budget for housing is.
I think Canary Wharf and the City definitely have a good working buzz vibe going on and certainly during the week it is busy.
For somewhere to stay, I like Balham, Islington or Chiswick if I had the money, Docklands or Shoreditch. about 6 years ago
Thanks for your advice, I'm a hairdresser but will probably look at hospitality but pretty open to any work. My partner is also in hospitality. As for our budget we will have a pretty limited one because we would like to travel as much as possible around the uk and Europe. Distance to commute isn't too much of a drama as long as we aren't spending a ridiculous amount on travel. Thanks again about 6 years ago
