Rental Prices Vary By Neighborhood

Rents vary depending on the area, with places notorious for drugs offering lower house costs.

Expat Clubs & Groups

Surprisingly, there is little activity regarding expat groups and university students have their own private clubs. I joined the Internations group in Leeds.

Schools for Expat Kids

My kids went to King Edwards in Broomhill and the education standard is top notch there. Tapton School also has an excellent reputation.

Grocery Shopping in Sheffield

Supermarkets in Sheffield offer excellent service and standards with big names such as: Morrisons, Sainsbury's, Asda, Tescos etc.
