We asked people about the cost of living in UK, they wrote...

"Rents vary depending on the area, with places notorious for drugs offering lower house costs," said another expat in Sheffield, UK.

"The cost of living in England is relatively high compared to other countries in Europe. The bigger cities such as London tend to have much higher prices than the rest of the country, with bigger price tags on rent, utilities and food. A nice 1 bedroom apartment in England would cost around $1,600 – $2,000 USD per month, while a nice 2 bedroom apartment will cost around $2,000 – $2,500 USD per month. The cost of dinner at a moderately priced restaurant is also relatively expensive, on average costing around $30 USD for two people," wrote a member who made the move to UK.
