Some advice needed from Londoners (or anyone who has lived in London recently)
I have been offered a job in London and need some pros & cons with regards to life in London. I am currently from a very small & retentively slow (boring) place and have been around here all my life.
Moving is going to be a big step and i need to come to the right decision, not only for myself but also for my partner & children.
So the basic things i know are that London is expensive and busy. The costs etc i can deal with as the new job will cover it all. I need other prospective points, ideally from those who haven't lived in London all their life and how they adapted to the city.
Also examples of affordable areas close to Greenwich (SE8) that are family friendly and not classed as the main "avoid" areas.
Any advice is appreciated
