If you’re trying to schedule the right time of year for your relocation, then summer is the best. While it is the busiest time in the city for tourists and the streets are bustling day and night, it is the quietest time of the year for business.
If you’re looking for a way to ease yourself into life and work in London then the summer holidays may just be the time of year to do it. In terms of finding an apartment, you’ll be best served by booking the services of professional London relocation agents before you arrive at Heathrow. Not only will they be able to have some properties waiting for you to view as soon as you get to London, but they will be able to advise you on the paperwork you may need in your first few days in London.
Summer in the City
It is traditional for most people working in England to take a fortnight’s holiday each summer. Many people go away to Europe or abroad and enjoy the summer as much as possible. You may find that your entry into your new office and your new job is slightly less stressed during the summer. You may not be able to get in to see any of the top tourist attractions during the summer, but you’ll find that the working environment is much more relaxed while people take advantage of the summer sun.
If you’re moving to London in the summer, there is really only one thing you’ll really have to have: An umbrella!
Summer can be fickle and the best way to be prepared is to start sporting a brolly for those walks through the city. You just never know when you’ll be caught in a deluge walking to and from the train station. If you’re starting work and trying to figure out how the transport system works, I’d splurge for the first week at least and take a taxi to and from work. It’ll save you time and you’ll arrive refreshed, dry and ready to make an impact on the city of London and your employers.
