The everyday expense of London is making it unattractive— so it's not really surprising that a survey by job site, Glassdoor, pitches Cambridge at number one out of 20 cities and towns for people to work and live in. In fact — London doesn't even make the list at all.
Just look the commute. One passenger recently got so fed up she quit her job in the city and is now threatening to sue the railway operator.
And house prices. The average cost of a house in London is now US$750,000, so first time buyers are being pushed further afield.
Cambridge is followed closely by Milton Keynes — once famous for its roundabouts…
And Nottingham — more famous for lace-making…
And if Brexit wasn't enough to put the willies up the super-cool tech companies, the cost of living and rent rises in London's Old Street means that digital businesses are swapping 'Silicon Roundabout' for 'Silicon fen', looking to the Cambridgeshire's marshland to relocate.
The light might be fading in London — but Londoners are still carrying a torch.
