My friend Lindsey from the London-based Urban Mums blog had the ingenious idea of creating a business to help families get settled when moving to London. I can’t tell you how many emails I’ve received from other mums who are planning a move to London. These mums have so many questions (as I’m sure I would if I were moving our family to a new city!). Questions about neighbourhoods, schools, renting a home/flat, finding childcare, learning about healthcare, shopping, dining, etc. I have always answered those questions as best as I can… but I’m not an expert. And here is where Lindsey comes in handy.
She has created Urban Living, a relocation service to help ex-pats navigate life in London. Whether you’re visiting London to explore the idea of moving here, or whether you’ve moved here and would love a local’s tips and expertise, she has created tailored services for individual needs. Plus, she is such a sweet, hip, energetic woman (and mama to three!), that even I am thinking about booking her services just to get to the spend the day with her. : )
If you, or anyone you know, are moving or have recently moved to London, definitely get in touch with Lindsey!
I was one of those moms who reached out to you and really appreciated all of your help. You kindness was truly appreciated. I will certainly keep this site handy for others! Xx
Good to know! Keep meaning to get in touch to tell you we are moving to London this summer! More soon….
LIndsey was one of the first people I met when I moved here five years ago, now one of my dearest friends. Even then she was a wealth of information about the city in which she lived and loved. So happy to see she’s turned it into a such a creative and useful business. Anyone who hires her will be so grateful they did. Fast track to loving life in London!
Me and my husband moved to London this September! This is a really nice idea! I ‘m going to check urbanliving right away! 🙂
