Are you new to the UK? You’ll be pleased to know that there are plenty of other New Zealanders in the UK. Here’s our round up of the best Facebook groups for Kiwis in the UK so you can find others to share your experience with.
Moving to the other side of the world can feel like a daunting prospect. Leaving the creature comforts of New Zealand and heading to the UK may be the move of a lifetime, but even though you speak the same language you can be left a little baffled by the quirky customs and habits of the British.
Whilst you’ll no doubt be keen to get involved with the local culture, having a support network of fellow Kiwis can be a great help when you’re looking to get the most out of your stay.
With the world constantly online Facebook offers the perfect way to ask, query, and share anything that you come across in your time in the UK. Even if all you want to do is share an amusing story of the latest strange thing you’ve seen in the UK, being able to pull out your iPhone and chat to another Kiwi is a great way to really enjoy your stay.
- Kiwis in London is a really popular group that hold regular meet ups, meaning its a great way to make new friends when you arrive.
- New Zealand Society UK – again this is a great group to join to meet others and keep homesickness at bay.
- Internations — perfect for not only meeting your fellow Kiwis, but other travellers from all four corners of the globe.
