An Italian acquaintance of mine will be working in London (twice-three times a week) from September and has asked me where's best to live on the South coast - she's not too keen on London, too £££-, decent place + value for money. I'm not quite sure TBH... Brighton's lovely but I'd hate to think how much the season-ticket would be (does anyone know?), not to mention local accommodation prices. Any suggestions? (what's Margate like these days?).
