Interesting Things to Know if You’re Moving from Inverness to London
If you’re moving from Inverness to London, the chances are you already know a lot about London – the main tourist attractions etc. – but do you know a few of the quirky things, especially relevant if you come from Inverness? We don’t pretend that this is anything like a comprehensive guide for you, but some of the information might just be of interest.
Why not start getting to know your new home city by visiting a street named after the place you are leaving? Did you know that Inverness Street lies at the heart of the interesting district known as Camden Town, known for its ‘plethora of seductively scuzzy venues’?
If you’re a stranger in the big city, where better to meet people than The Good Mixer, 30 Inverness Street, described as ‘a proper London boozer’? You can always use the opening line that you found this place mentioned on a web page for those moving from Inverness to London! The Good Mixer, incidentally, is where Noel Gallagher of Oasis allegedly insulted the dress sense of Blur’s Graham Coxon, and Amy Winehouse was a regular!
