Most people I meet are more interested in complaining about the weather, talking about where they live, moaning about housing prices, or any of the million-and-one other things that people talk and complain about here that have nothing to do with immigration.
Basically, if you come to London from abroad to work, expect: to be asked about your home country a lot, to be teased occasionally about your vocabulary/pronunciation of certain words, to meet tons of amazing people, to have loads of amazing experiences, and to pay more for accommodation than you ever thought possible.
As a white Canadian male (who also has British citizenship), I get asked where I'm from on a fairly regular basis.
I also feel as though I occasionally get mistaken for a tourist when out in Central London.
There are far too many different things to compare.
Otherwise, skip to one of the other sections: Where to Live, How to Find a Place to Live, How to Find Work, How to Set Up a Bank Account, Transportation in London, Living in London FAQs.First, if you're not a UK or EU citizen, then make sure you get your visa sorted before you leave.A tourist visa does not give you the right to live or work in the UK.Nevertheless, public attitudes towards immigrants/foreigners are on the whole vastly more positive in London.This might have something to do with the fact that over 1/3rd of Londoners were born outside the UK.
