    I wish I'd found InterNations sooner: It would have made my first few month as an expat in London much less overwhelming.

Welcome to Our London Expat Network!

Welcome to the InterNations London Community for expats and global minds! The InterNations platform is designed to provide you with all the resources you need to ease you into life in a new city. Our aim is to make things easier for you as you plan your move and settle into your new life in London. Draw on the experience of other expats who have already gone through a similar move and understand the challenges which you are facing. Once you've joined InterNations you can access all the information about London, contributed by experienced and trusted members of the InterNations community. Whether you want to know the best areas of London to live in, or what the congestion charge is, you'll get the answers you need on our forum. With London's reputation for being one of the most expensive cities in the world to live in, you may be looking for how to get the most from your money while living in the UK's capital. You can also seek advice on the best schools in the area, how to manage your work-life balance in a city known for its work hard, play hard culture, and where to shop for those all-important foods you're missing from home and can't find in your local store.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in Hong Kong or Brussels.

Beginning Your Life in London

London has been named the world's most popular city five times in the last seven years, welcoming nearly 19 million visitors each year. One of the most exciting and vibrant cities in the world, London has a wealth of history and culture, and is home to hundreds of museums and art galleries, including the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), the Natural History Museum, the Tate, and the National Gallery. Theater-goers are spoilt for choice in London's West End, and there are restaurants to please every palate. London currently boasts over 60 restaurants which hold one or more Michelin stars. All this, combined with a strong economy and plentiful employment opportunities for expatriates, draws many foreign nationals to work in London. Employment laws are more flexible than in many countries; expats can find employment in a broad range of sectors, from financial to medical, and career development opportunities are good. For many years London has had a strong cosmopolitan atmosphere, and today it is home to a large expat population.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Khobar (Eastern Prov.) or Riyadh, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Connect with Fellow Expats in London

The InterNations community is made up of expatriates who all respect our guiding principles of trust, helpfulness, and a friendly and welcoming demeanor, creating a safe environment in which you can interact with like-minded people from other countries. Use the forum to ask any question about life in London and you'll be sure to find someone who can provide a helpful answer. Whatever your question relates to, from work permits to leisure activities, you'll be tapping into an expert knowledge base. InterNations members can also join local InterNations Groups and attend all sorts of social events. A wide range of activities are organized through the platform. In addition to the regular networking events organized by InterNations, there are numerous clubs and groups, arranging activities from picnics to music concerts. Whether you want to have a go at samba, join a book club, help out with a volunteer group or go wine tasting, you'll find something of interest. Whether you want to continue your favorite hobby or try something new, joining groups and finding time for activities can be the perfect way to get to know some fellow expats and start to feel more at home in London. Integrating into life in a new city can be hardest for your family members, but expatriates who have families living with them in London can meet other parents and children through the Family & Kids events. Take some time to explore all the opportunities and resources on InterNations and you'll soon feel at home in London.
