Hi, yes I am. I moved from the UK to Boston exactly 1 year ago next month. I'm currently living in Brookline and my work is in Southborough. When are you moving or have you already moved? I'm looking for somewhere to move to and might be looking for a flat mate if you're interested? I'm male, 31 years old.

I moved from London to Western MA 3 years ago with my job. Live in a lovely, leafy, sleepy little town but occasionally bomb up the Pike for a weekend in the city.

Default Thanks!

Glad to hear you are all settling nicely. Thank you for your responses. Have you had much of a 'culture shock' since your arrival?

My husband is from the UK, near Brighton. We've gone back and forth from MA to England a few times - hence my username Wivenhoe (where Essex University is located). We recently moved back to MA after living in NYC for 5 years. We lived in Salem MA for 8 years before returning back to MA.

You'll find a lot of Brits here. There are expat shops here, including one on Route 1 going south in Peabody on the hill near the Rte 95 exchange. There are some restaurants, including a Scottish one that recently opened in Jamaica Plain - Scottish delights at the Haven in Jamaica Plain - The Boston Globe. There's also a British School of Boston - The British School of Boston

I don't know the exact numbers but I think there are thousands of Brits living here in MA. I think Brits are all other the state, not necessarily in one defined area. I think there are a number of them around Boston, Cambridge, metro west, North Shore, and South Shore. Many of the towns here in MA are based on English towns, particularly East Anglian towns, since many of the early 17th-century settlers came from that area and named them after their English town in East Anglia.

In NYC, there were over 200,000 Brits. I think most of whom seemed to live in Greenwich Village/East Village, though they are all over the NYC area. There's a whole website for them - bigapplebrits.com (I think). There are a ton of expat places in NYC.
