Hello all! I'm hoping someone might be able to help. An American friend of mine on twitter is thinking of moving to the UK and has asked me a few questions about the country and attitudes towards immigrants etc. Obviously I can give my own opinions on some of it, but I wondered if anyone on my flist would have a better perspective. I have never lived in London so I don't really have a clue about costs besides it probably being very expensive, or where the best areas to live would be for that matter. Also any thoughts about British attitudes towards Americans moving here would be appreciated. I feel like any negative attitudes would be muted in London anyway - since it's such a huge melting pot of a city.

- Will being American cause a lot of trouble when I try to apply for jobs, look for housing, or just cause any major problems all-around besides those two I listed?

- Is it difficult to find an apartment, and around how much will rent be? I'll likely be getting a studio apartment. Additionally, I ask this question even though it's a bit broad because I hope that if I move to England I could perhaps live in London, and the only city in America that I feel is our equivalent of London is New York. Over in NY, very small apartments can go for thousands rent-wise, and if you want one in a good neighborhood it costs even more. Do you know if that is what it's like in London? I don't know if you live in a house or apartment, but do you know the names of some good areas in London to get a normal studio apartment and if it would really break the bank to pay monthly rent in those neighborhoods (like around how much would it be to live there)? If those areas are pretty expensive, what are the neighborhoods that I could get a normally priced apartment and are they bad/not very good areas? I'm sorry if this question is a bit all over the place and difficult to answer so it's fine if you can't really answer it with specifics.

Any help would be very much appreciated!
