When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to UK, they said...

"Before retiring in England, expats should research the local housing market, cost of living, exchange rate, annual income tax bracket, eligible pension schemes and healthcare options. It is also important to explore visa and residency requirements and investigate whether a UK bank account is necessary. When considering working after retirement, expats should familiarize themselves with the labor laws governing their employment and any other relevant regulations. Lastly, to ensure a smooth transition, expats should embrace the local culture, language and lifestyle," remarked another expat who made the move to UK.

"Depends from where you are moving.. if its from abroad... English culture is a challenge, it takes a lot of time to make real friends, but once you are in, you are in!!! :)," explained one expat living in Weston Super Mare, UK.
