A bedsit is a self-contained room with its own small kitchen, but a shared bathroom, and a studio flat has its own bathroom.

Bedsits start at about £85 a week in London but you’ll be lucky to find a studio for less than £100.

A one-bedroom flat will cost about £180-£220 a week, depending on the area. Always check what is included in your rent; some rent includes hot water and gas but not electricity.
