How do I meet people in UK?
When we asked people living in UK about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded...
"Expats living in England often join clubs dedicated to particular interests or hobbies, such as book clubs, language exchange groups, running clubs, and sport leagues to meet people and stay engaged in their new environment. Volunteering for local charities and organizations is another wonderful way to both meet people and contribute to the local community. Local networking events, as well as using online resources and communities, can also be great ways for expats to meet people, build relationships, and create social connections. Additionally, attending festivals, exhibitions, and shows can be great opportunities for expats to experience new cultures and make new friends," wrote a member who made the move to UK.
