Sometimes I get a request to write our relocation to London blog about some free places in London worth a visit. This particular location you could spend a week straight at and still not see it all. (And that’s just the inside, the outside is endless Botanical Gardens by KEW, an easy few days extra.) The British Museum takes up a monstrous area in Russell Street, near Russell Square and the tube station. Just a short walk over from Covent Garden, there are a number of exhibitions going on at all times.
Churchill was Prime Minister of England not once, but twice, first in 1940-1945, during the second world war, and again in 1951-1955. The instant thought that comes to mind for most people is his victorious efforts in World War II, and his famous orations and speeches. Yet there is so much more to Churchill than just his status as Prime Minister and world leader. Did you know that Churchill was an officer in the British Army, an accomplished historian, a writer, and an artist. Until this day Winston Churchill is the only Prime Minister to have won the Nobel Peace Prize for literature.
Churchill was the first person to be made an honarary citizen of the United States, (for all you Americans moving to London). There is so much most people don’t know about this incredibly historic figure, and when your living in London after your London relocation is the best time to find out more. The Churchill War Room chronicals the most famous of all Brits and lays out the 60 years of political service he performed.
Imagine you’ve just arrived for your relocation to London and you’re ready to start your life’s new chapter. While you may believe it could be difficult living in London without having anyone to call or get together with that you know, but you find yourself surprised. As everyone you meet here in London isn’t from London but is from another country. Won’t matter if you are a Canadian moving to London, or an American moving to London, you suddenly see that you are like everyone else, from someplace else.
Relocation to London is no doubt an exciting adventure to couples moving to London, but what about the couples with children? Children are told only after their parents have fully committed to moving to London, they really have no say in the matter. If your children are pre-school age this obviously is not a problem, but what about older children. While kids between the six and ten generally form attachments at school, in their neighborhood, or with sports team members, these children are more likely to land on their feet and adapt well once they attend school and make new friends. If you’re an American moving to London, or a Canadian moving to London there are so many neighborhoods that are primarily expat inhabited that children this age may not even need to wait to meet fellow expat kids at school.
