    In the UK it is the most expensive but in Europe Moscow is most expensive and in the world Tokyo is most expensive. Worldwide London ranks #16 most expensive city.

    Not anymore, which surprises me! Its now officially number 16th most expensive city to live. Tokyo is number 1. But in 2008, London was number 3. Big drop from 3 to 16. Maybe the fallen pound has helped get this result?

    London is approximately on par with long island in terms of residing expenditures, and is extremely, VERY costly in comparison to something of britain. there are a number of different cities in Britain that have artwork and music colleges so why no longer attempt those. you do no longer say how a lot you prefer to spend, yet $2000 will lease you an excellent 4 bedroomed homestead in lots of factors of britain and $six hundred might desire to get you a a million mattress room or studio. London is a stunning place to pass to besides the shown fact that it quite is in uncomplicated terms quite nicely worth residing there in case you may get considered one of those interest which will offset the residing expenditures. opposite to popular perception, no longer all jobs pay massively greater in London than they do up North, yet on the different hand there are a number of greater jobs in London than in the different city.

    I'm not sure but property prices and transport in London can be very expensive compared to other parts of the world.

    Normally yeah... but the Pound has been battered in the recession so technically its cheaper than it used to be.

    Still the most expensive in the UK though.... and top 10 worldwide regardless.

    You would think. I live there but we are thinking of moving to New York City where my mom is from. We all though it would be cheaper but it really isn't at all, the schools are more expensive in NYC, alot more, and we were looking at places in Manhattan, but we can't live there cuz the cheapest townhouse in Manhattan is like 10,000,000 bucks!

    No. Dublin is more expensive but I wouldn't say its the most expensive.
