22 Jun Insiders guide to relocating to London or Surrey
So you’re new to the country. Welcome! And I hope you’re not feeling too lost and watching “Made In Chelsea” just to find out where to hang out. A common discussion thread with those that have newly arrived in Surrey and London, is what on earth is everyone doing and what am I missing out on.
When relocating, it’s not all about the house. It’s about making the most of your time in a new country. So as a property search agent and relocation agent, what do I do that’s different? Well, I give you my insiders knowledge. Now, I’m beginning to fall in love with social media – not because I’m very good at it but because it’s a great place to find out what’s going on and who’s doing what.
There are some great websites and apps that you can pick and chose between. Through an initial recommendation from Twitter I found The Londonist, The Dojo App, and today The Covent Garden Pass. Plus my favourite – Time Out. All giving ideas and special offers of things to do in London and surrounding areas.
It’s the time of year for village festivals and fetes and lots of live music.
From The Londonist, you can find the Wimbledon Village Fair on Saturday. If you’re new to the country and want a taster in some of our more bizarre pastimes – go and watch the Morris Dancers from 14:20-14:35. http://www.wimbledonguildvillagefair.org.uk/things-to-do/live-music-entertainment
It’s also Glastonbury this weekend but if you didn’t get tickets, fear not, Dojo recommends heading to The Festival of Love at The Southbank Centre open 10-23:00 until 15 August instead. www.thesouthbankcentre.co.uk
And what do Time Out recommend for Sunday? Well the Dragon Boat Festival of course http://www.timeout.com/london/things-to-do/london-dragon-boat-festival
Relocating to a new area can be overwhelming and you could miss a lot of opportunities. If you are moving to London, relocation agents in London can advise you on a wide range of aspects of living in London; including the things to do in the Capital.
When relocating to London or Surrey, use a relocation agent that not only helps with the move but also helps you find your feet.
