    You left out red-eyed, cider drinking, tractor driving, cousin bothering....
    It's also talk like a pirate day every day in Bristol.

    Anyone want to make a case for Birmingham?

    Or the right colours, or no colours at all. Best to just avoid it.
    The list is endless.

    As to my knowledge i would suggest you check out places within Liverpool, the property values in that area have gone down immensely - That being said i know it is more suited than london on the pricing and than you can reaccess and see where else you can afford once you get here.

    Hopfully you like it - Out of your options if you really are set on them 3 options, i would say cost savvy - Manchester.

    I have to agree with Manchester. Since cost is a concern and public transport. Outside London it's probably the best place for a sound engineer and graphic designer. It's probably the best city after London for live music too, but not arts. You're nice and close to great countryside too.

    If there were job opportunities there I'd throw Newcastle into the mix. Cheap, friendly, beautiful city centre, increasingly bohemian with great new shops, bars and restaurants. Some of the best galleries, cinemas and music venues in the country. And again, near phenomenal countryside.

    He's a Yank IIRC. If you can't understand a word they say, what chance do you think he has? Apologies if you're a Geordie.

    Actually, the Geordie accent is dying out. You barely hear it in the centre of Newcastle any more and never to the thickness of a Jimmy Nail say. Probably partly due to the fact that it's one of the biggest student cities in the country.

    And Newcastle being a vibrant city is now attracting a lot of workers from around the country/world...

    Its identity will be changed forever..

    Most accents are a lot weaker than they were unfortunately, I quite like the Geordie accent when I can understand it but it would be a shame for them to lose their local identity.

    It might genuinely be the worst accent in the world, of any language. One of the few accents that can change peoples perception of your IQ.
