I've written this guide to try to clarify the process by addressing the most important issues you'll likely face when moving here.
If you find that there's something I haven't covered or would like some clarification, just ask in the comments section at the bottom of the page.
First, if you're not a UK or EU citizen, then make sure you get your visa sorted before you leave.
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.
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.
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.
