That’s why lots of people are taking advantage of remote working with some surprising additional benefits.
Have you looked on longingly as friends of yours leave major urban centres, such as London, and join the covid exodus to the countryside, smaller cities, towns and villages? You’re not alone. The series of lockdowns has made a lot of us reconsider our living spaces and suddenly all the positives of living in the capital (or similar) have turned into drawbacks. The lure of smaller cities has become more and more pronounced with Bath, and its beautiful Georgian architecture, foremost among them. Bath has the benefits of a smaller city, because of it’s a manageable size, but a lot of the advantages of a bit city – it’s cosmopolitan, full of life, and rich in culture. It also has a excellent reputation for its schools. But, as with any move, there’s a number of considerations to work through before you take the plunge.
