The UK is a sought-after choice for expats looking to move abroad.

An expat shared why he thinks people want to move to the UK over some parts of Europe.

He relocated to the north of England and shared that the British people are why others should "move to the UK now".

The expat explained he had lived in parts of Europe before the UK and noticed a big difference in Britain.

One of the main draws for him was the friendliness of Britons.

"UK people are nice people and polite compared to Europe," he said when discussing why others want to move to the country.

"I'm not trying to say there are not nice people in [Europe] but based on my encounters with [Britons], I've noticed they are really polite."

Another reason why expats may come from abroad to the UK is the scenery.

"If you are looking for beauty, [the UK] is majestic. It's the most beautiful place I've been to," the expat explained on YouTube channel Promise Breno.

A recent study detailed some of the reasons why expats choose life in the UK.

It found 67 per cent of expats are happy with their lives in Britain.

In particular, they praised the work opportunities and possibility of progression, the Expat Insider 2023 survey explained.

The UK also ranked in the top 10 for career prospects, work culture and general satisfaction.
