Liverpool would be considerably cheaper. I've been to Liverpool a few times during my life in the UK. I really liked the city though...it seemed to be going through a cleanup and renovation and that was 10 years ago, so I'm sure it's come even further now. A mate of mine also lives there now and loves the nightlife and the people. It's somewhere I'd definitely consider living.

Hopefully you aren't planning on work if you move to Liverpool.

Liverpool's schools are the best performing out of all England's major cities outside London, while there is the University of Liverpool, part of the UK's 'Russell Group', similar to the Ivy League of the US.

'Ivy League'? Does it even break the top 100 in the world? I've never heard of the 'Russell Group'.

Liverpool is considerably cheaper than London. If you want to move there then the cost of living wont be an issue if you're from London. The university of Liverpool is OK and there are plenty of colleges.

Yes, I believe all the UK Universities in the Russell Group are in the top 100 globally, with the likes of Oxford, Cambridge, UOL colleges etc

But the University of Liverpool that ranks about 180 in the world (according to several searches I have just done) makes it on there so I guess you have to use your own judgement on its relevancy.
