So it's getting close to my departure date. I'm wondering what to expect in terms of housing. I need to be in "downtown" London as I will be attending evening classes (at KCL) and car-less. Is it possible to find a decent flat for 1000 pounds a month (1500 US)? I really don't want to spend more than this as I know there will be lots of other living expenses that I need to consider. I also don't have the option of student housing as my kids will be visiting frequently. Should I resign myself to a rodent infested cracker box or will it possible to find something livable? Also are there neighborhoods I should try to avoid?
Any input would be much appreciated.
