I have been living in London for over 2 years as a student. It's ridiculously expensive. However, there are options. What I like about the city is you can find many events anytime you want. It's active all year 24/7. There are so many foreigners and tourists which make the living more vibrant and less racist. London has sub-communities which I think is a good thing. Those communities bring their cultures, ethics and foods. Public transportation and restaurants are great. I used to spend 3-4 hours in Costa or Nero cafe without interruptions. Though if it's raining or summer season it could be hard to stay long. On the negative side, the UK suffers from slow and old bureaucracies making life difficult sometimes. It's not easy to open a bank account or to rent. The government systems are slow. Also, you will feel depressed in winter when the sunset is before 4pm and the temperature is 0c. All in all, everything is great about the city except the affordability and the winter.

Just moved to Glasgow a year ago. Yes, weather is humid, grey, rainy, everyday (almost). BUT the people are great, the city is full of charm and vibrant. It is very authentic and doesn't have many tourists. The accent is awesome. It's cheaper than most important cities in UK. The post-industrial style is so interesting too ! I 'm in love with Glasgow.

Very lovely and accessible city. Many cafes and workspaces to work from, including the Nero chain. Per Europe, data rates are very cheap and vendors are plentiful. Liverpool ONE's grassy roof was a perfect spot to take an important business call. Find all the Liver birds you can! Museums and galleries here are fantastic workspaces too as most have not terribly expensive cafes and VERY quiet workspaces. Student town, so take note. Also a great town for reinforcing and reflecting on basic human rights. If you look for a deal, you'll find one. DOWN with the Sun!

Manchester is a working town, but has much going on in the weekend days. Well connected by train for the rest of England as well as cheap flights to Ireland and London if needed. National Football Museum, arcades, and high end and low end food for any budget.

Edinburgh is one of my favourite places in the world. I've lived here for a few months twice now, but unfortunately the nomad scene isn't great.
If you're looking for a nice spot that's super walkable, has lots of parks/green space, and isn't too expensive, Edinburgh is great! If you're looking for great coworking spaces or to meet lots of other nomads, Edinburgh currently isn't the place to do that.

Cardiff is a lovely and friendly place filled with plenty of shopping areas, plenty of cuisines all over the city whatever your pallet may be and is not too expensive shall you go to the right places, my favourites being YO! sushi which I loved to go with my partner (the furukaki fries now named yo fries are to die for) but while here there are a lot of things you must do; buy welsh cakes and get yourself a coffee or tea they are delicious little flat cakes sold all over the city for cheap usually cheaper in bulk. I saw 10 for 3 pounds in many flavours, raisins, chocolate, cinnamon, lemon the list goes on. next you need to go to Cardiff castle (it can be pricey) during normal session it costs 13 pound a person but during popular events like football it is often free to visit and climb the castle which is what I did during a football game in the millennium stadium and yes it does get crowded when these games are on but the good thing being in the city the roads close so people can walk on the roads making it easier to not get stepped on. while here you need to try a nice pub at least one time while I cant remember the name there is a lovely cocktail bar/pub that does 2 for 1 cocktails for 7 pound (my favourite being buffalo soldier (which is rum, ginger beer and apple juice with lime added and its delicious). when you are here make sure you check out the welsh gift shops and get a few souvenirs here, the amount of highly detailed and shiny dragon statues you can buy are insane so if you like castles, medieval literature and dragons (and sheep) make sure you come to Cardiff for a break from London.
