    I am kind of resigned to being stuck working in London for the foreseeable future due to a lack of big financial corporations in other areas of the country.

    I feel quite sad that this means I will never get to know different parts of the country, or indeed the world.

    If I could, I'd love to try somewhere new, like Yorkshire or Devon/Cornwall maybe. Where is the best place to live and work?

    Bromley, Kent
    Peckham, something new happens there everyday and you get plenty of exercise running away from muggers.

    Nah, one it's still in London, two I used to live there many years ago, in Nunhead lane. Not a bad area.

    Slight (major!) aside. There was a house in No Place, Co. Durham called Ennafay (NFA)
    My choice would be Cornwall, follow the sun, that's why I moved to Durham from Redditch.
    As cities go, Gloucester is v. nice.

    I've had mates at uni in York and Manchester, and both of them seemed quite nice. This was about 20 years back, mind. Manchester seemed good still when I had a summer school there about a decade back, as did Norwich. I've not been to York for a while now, though I plan to go soon.
    North Wales I'm very fond of. Been going quite often all my life really - I have rellies around Conway and Bangor.

    Anywhere in the countryside !! Sleepy Suffolk is not bad although late in 2006 there are many who would not agree with that.

    North Somerset
    Cheltenham is nice, as is York.

    I'd like to try a spell on an island. Scilly, or Channel Islands. Or maybe chicken out and do the Isle of Wight. If I could squeeze on, what with the whole world's population standing on it.

    North Wales? Isn't it crawling with Sheep Shaggers?

    I would say Cyprus - loads of dirt track to cycle over or Spain if you don't mine the foreign lingo.

    In UK it owld need to be in the south for the better whether, Bucks/Surrey/Sussey if you want to say close to London or else over to the west - devonshire and cornwallshire.

    No, I was nowhere near Llangollen.

    Ooh - another one I thought of.
    Cape Clear Island, County Cork. Population 120 or so. As far from the rat race as it gets.

    That is indeed very sad, to feel so constrained for the rest of your life by a job....

    York's lovely, I'd live here for the rest of my life, unless I had a reason to move, which would probably be some sort of family or love thing.

    I'd also quite like to try island life - Orkney is my only experience of that sort of thing, and I'd happily live there.

    I'd make a comment about the weather in West Cork, except I lived on Sherkin Island for a few months, and we had fantastic weather while the UK was flooding.

    What did you think of Sherkin? I've not been, though I have passed it a good number of times, on the way to Cape.

    Yeah, it's shoot isn't it? I do have some plans though and if they work out things may change for the better :angry:

    I guess I am not alone in being trapped in an area by work.
