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.
After your relocation to London you will likely be enjoying the diversity of all that London has to offer. As an American you sometimes may want to enjoy a little taste of home. If you are happening to catch a famed London Theater performance there’s a restaurant you may want to try in that district (Covent Garden area) that will remind you of a fancy steakhouse meal back home. Christopher’s combines the traditional theater atmosphere of the Victorian age popular pastime with its architecture while serving a “Neo-American” fare.
Moving to London will be one of the most interesting experiences of your life. You’ll be able to experience life in one of the biggest cities in the world, as well as live in one of the most famous cities in the world. London is unique in that it has all the charm of a quaint English village set amid the million dollar deals of the financial world in the heart of the city. This dichotomy will, at times, enthrall you and frustrate you. You’ll love the open spaces and the small cobbled streets, as well as the international jet set lifestyle that is found in every part of the city.
