London, steeped in history, leading in innovation and bursting with energy. Our capital city attracts people from all over the world for many different reasons. Our overseas clients tend to be American and French families who are relocating to London usually for work purposes.
Starting a new life in a new country brings a wealth of opportunities, and we want you to make the most of them. Which is why we would recommend that you approach your first few months here as a tourist, before you find yourself in the routine of daily life and giving you time to properly explore.
Make use of the buses instead of the tube, this way you can get to know the area, rather than just the tube stations. Use any free time to venture out and see the sites. From Buckingham Palace to Big Ben, museums, art galleries, theatres, historical and creative centres, you will be
amazed at what you will find on your doorstep.
Don’t be scared of getting lost; you see so much more on foot than you do by public transport. Some of our favourite places in South Hampstead we may never have found if we hadn’t taken a stroll.
Ensure you take time to enjoy the outdoors, whether by exploring one of London’s Royal Parks or visiting an urban farm or petting zoo, there is far more ‘countryside’ in the city than you might imagine.
Schools are a huge concern when moving country. For French families living in South Hampstead, a short journey on the Jubilee Line will take you to Lycée International de Londres Winston Churchill. A French international school offering a French curriculum from primary to upper secondary, the environment is bilingual, catering to children with English. More locally, South Hampstead High School has an excellent reputation; it is described by the Good Schools Guide as “A seriously hard-working school, but one which feels friendly, collaborative and focused.”
It’s not only those looking to relocate who cross our path, but also high calibre corporate tenants seeking a refined property that is managed effectively. With so many areas and properties to choose from, it can often seem like a minefield; that’s why we are here to help.
We can show you why you should make South Hampstead your home. Although the property search may be the start, we support our clients on many levels with advice and tips on living in London. It is important to us that you feel at home; let us take you on a viewing to show you the exquisite collection of properties we have available. We’re not interested in finding you just any property; by understanding the needs of your entire family, we will find you your London home.
At South Hampstead Residential we have helped countless families start their new life in London, we look forward to working with you. Call us today on 0207 372 6886.
