We constantly get asked for advice on the best way to find accommodations if our applicants do not get (or do not want) a place in our subsidized housing complex.
There's information included in our Guide to Teaching in London e-book about accommodation options. We've written blog posts in the past on how to sort out your own accommodations and recommendations for inexpensive hotels.
Well...now we have another idea from one of our recent teacher candidates who arrived in London last month. She recommended a company called Arrive Homes that helped her find a great, inexpensive, safe place to live in London.
Here is what she had to say about Arrive Homes:
I have been in London for about a week now and have already found a great place to live and have been to IKEA to get all the things I may need in my new house! I wanted to share that arrivehomes.co.uk are AMAZING! They are two young guys who place young professionals (lots of teachers) in house shares all over London. They were great in the lead up to getting over here and we met up right away and they showed me 4 places in one day. I fell in love with the last and all has been easy since! The places are really affordable (they range 5-600 pounds max) and they are all in safe neighbourhoods and near tube stations.
Just thought I would let you know!
Thanks, Maggie for sharing this great resource and if any others out there have ideas on how to find great housing in London, please post below.
