In England, the cost of living is lower than that of many other countries. For example, the cost of groceries is 22.85% lower in the UK than in the USA. However, the cost of living is generally higher in the UK than in South Africa – don’t let this put you off though, because on average, people in the UK have more purchasing power to make up for the higher cost of living.
Here is a breakdown of the cost of living in the UK vs. South Africa:
The average cost of a weekly grocery shop in England is £80-£100, depending where you live in the country. This is the cost for two people including food, toiletries, and laundry items.
