Rents are generally the same, but you’ll get more space. Ditch damp flats for light-filled bungalows with room to entertain.

LA’s dynamic industries mean abundant job opportunities. Major companies are always on the hunt for UK talent and visas are readily available for in-demand fields like tech, finance, healthcare and entertainment. Consider transferring within your current firm or trying something new in sunny SoCal.

Business Friendly Environment

With its entrepreneurial spirit, California offers the ideal landscape to launch your own venture. Low business taxes, access to venture capital funding, and a huge consumer market make LA attractive for Brits wanting to be their own boss. Join the Silicon Beach startup scene or sell your novel to Hollywood executives eager for fresh ideas.

Lifestyle Perks
