While it is far and away the most visited U.K. city - with Edinburgh coming in second - there are those for whom massive popularity is their cue to seek out something different. Expatriates with an eye to 'going native' in England may also enjoy the relative challenge of working and residing in a city with a slightly less international profile to it.   more ...
