Relocation to London is not just about work, finding an apartment and opening a bank account. If you’re really smart you’ll let other people organize those details for you, so that you’re free to explore the city when you arrive.

Food and Cuisine are an important part of living in London. Many people in the city choose to eat out a couple of times a week. There are hundreds of top restaurants and eateries in the city and you can sample food from every corner of the globe in one weekend.

Instead of rushing through a quick meal at your local restaurant, plan your culinary tours carefully. Spend some time over the weekends exploring different parts of London and a range of restaurant types. During the summer there are a number of food festivals in London and you’ll have to keep a good look out for restaurants hosting special events.

On Sunday 14 August 2011, 69 Colebrooke Row will be hosting a traditional Italian festival called “Ferragosto” Billed as “50’s Italian meets Coney Island Cool, this is an event not to be missed. Families are welcome until 7pm and there is something for everyone to enjoy. Food, music, aperativo drinks and a whole lot of Italian style in a modern London setting.

The end of august and the beginning of September are just about the best time of year for food lovers. It is the start of a season of sorts. New chefs are being launched, new winter menus are created and of course Grouse is beginning to be seen on the menus of the top London restaurants. The start of the game season is the chance to really enjoy the start of autumn and the coming of the winter months.

August may be the perfect time to enjoy London. It is hot and sunny during the day, and yet the weather is starting to turn just a little during the evenings. It is a time of change and you will be able to enjoy the lowering of prices from the tourist traps of summer.

Relocation in August leaves you  a few weeks before the schools start the year in September, and everyone has to go back to work again. It’s a breather and a chance to discover a little more about your new home before the dark days of winter arrive.
