The best 5 ways to meet new people in London


Making new friends can be a challenge for many people, especially in current times. If you are new to the city or you feel anxious about meeting people, first of all take a deep breath! London has a lot to offer and in this article I’m going to share with 5 ways to meet people so you can just relax and enjoy the experience.

1.Shared living in London. 

Living with the right people beats living on your own any day. When you live with the right people, you don't just share your space - you share your life. They become more than your flatmates. They're your friends. Spare Room, London Shared or even Facebook Marketplace are some of the most popular sites to find people to share your life with. There you will find many shared flats at affordable prices as well as you will get the chance to advertise your own spare room at home. These are the go to sites for most people from all around the world when they arrive to a new city. This is also a great way to share languages!

2.Find a local pub

Going to the pub every week is a very important part of British culture and definitely something to experience. This will give you the opportunity not only to enjoy a nice pint of larger, but also to feel the vibe of the city while having the opportunity to talk to other people in the area

3.Go to a meetup

If you are the shy-type and talking to strangers just like that is not your thing, maybe you can try with Meetup. Meetup is an app where people organize all sorts of events around the city. You’ll find photography enthusiasts, people that love hiking and exploring the city, people that just want to go for a few drinks, language exchanges and more. Join other social groups in London

4.Become a volunteer in your local charity shop

Nothing feels better than helping others, right? Imagine how cool it would be to do it while meeting new people from all over the world in the process.

5.Take a language course

Language courses are always a great way to meet new like-minded people and also to learn a new skill. If you are in London to learn English you are half way through your goal. But if you are a native English speaker, why not give Spanish or French a go?

We offer language courses for all learning levels. Remember you can test your level before registering for a course!
