Is the cost of living in England high?

We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in England, they wrote:

"The cost of living in England depends on the city and region you live in, however, in the larger cities such as London and Manchester, the average costs are generally quite high. Living costs such as rent, food, and transportation may be more expensive than in other parts of the UK, however, wages and salaries also tend to be higher. Depending on the lifestyle you choose, England can be an expensive place to live, but with careful budgeting, it is possible to enjoy a comfortable life," remarked one expat in UK.
