Considering a move to Southampton, Cardiff, Portsmouth, or London. Would like to live on coast but would like to be close to entertainment.?
Cost of living--especially housing/residential--is a factor. Are any of these places struggling more than any of the others in terms of economics, crime, or otherwise?
Please recommend one or list in order of what would be best. I will need to commute, probably by train, to Oxford several times a year and would like to be less than two hours from there. For this reason, I could even live in Scotland or Ireland, if favorable.
