Default Moving to the UK

Ok here I go again

I have been thinking of moving to the UK for years now and plan on making the move this year. I am nervous and would like any tips and good suggestions or links to sites on looking for work, accomodation, hostels that you have stayed at.

Thanks
G

the first thing to do is look at visa's and work permits and such things. the uk can be quite stingy and strict at times.

i cant help you with anything though because i live in the uk and have never had to think about stuff like that - but once you get here give us a shout!!
