There's investment banking goes on outside of London. Bristol, Norwich, Edinburgh...
Remember too, that housing and living costs are lower outside of London - often a lot lower.
Unless you're looking in parts of Norfolk where the likes of investment bankers from London have snapped up homes in Norfolk villages
