You can find nice pictures of a flat or house on websites such as rightmove or the university accommodation site. However, it is important to check your future accommodation yourself. So, I advise you to visit some homes in daytime and nighttime to be comfortable about them in different situations. In addition, if you are a parent, you should look for a school before you look for a home. Look at the Ofsted reports on school websites, then choose a suitable school for your family preference. Visit this school and ask about the available places for new children. If you are happy with the school, you can start searching for accommodation. Moreover, you should consider whether the best way to get to school is walking, a private car or public transportation.
