Moving to Paris?

Living in Paris

No city encaptures true elegance and style like Paris does. The capital is the beating heart of Europe, and is well known for its cafe culture and romantic atmosphere. With a bustling population of around 2.5 million, the city has always been a hit with tourists from all over the world, boasting sensational cuisine and traditional style buildings. With such a heavy expat community, English is widely spoken in Paris making it a great place for UK expats to live. 

There are plenty of employment opportunities in Paris, as being a Global Power City, it is a major player in many industries. It is important to note that UK expats will now require a French work visa following Brexit, and once you’ve found a company to work for, they will help you with the process of acquiring one. 

The climate in Paris is temperate, and in some areas similar to the UK. Summers will bring warm and sunny weather, winters will be frosty and autumns crisp and fresh.

You’ll be spoilt for choice on places to see and visit in Paris. The art scene in Paris is unmatched, housing some of the most infamous pieces of artwork in the world in museums such as the Louvre and Musee D’Orsay. Stroll down the beautiful Parisian streets and admire the traditional architecture, and immerse yourself in the city culture at the catacombs. Living in Paris will not leave you without anything to do.
