What £1K per month rent in London gets you compared to other global cities

‘Not much’ is the short (and wholly unsurprising) answer.

Living in the capital can be a pretty eye-watering experience. When you aren't paying over the odds for some badly furnished shoe box, you’re paying over the odds for the location.

In fact, the more central you go, the more likely it becomes that you're going to be sleeping on the fridge and forking out £650 per month for the privilege.

So Londoners, look away now if you want to keep your sanity, as US lifestyle website Elite Daily has scanned the average property prices in 13 major cities, working out what sort of rental property you’d get for $1,500 per month. Or £1K for us.

Of course you might be lucky enough to live outside of London, in which case please read on and have a little laugh…in your massive castle.
