Where do most Bulgarians live in the UK?

According to some early-twentieth-century estimates, around 30,000 Bulgarians dwell permanently or temporarily (as students and laborers) in the capital London alone. Bulgaria was home to 5,351 individuals according to the 2001 UK Census. This number includes both British and foreign-born people.

Although this is a relatively small community, it has been growing steadily since the 1950s when many Bulgarian refugees arrived here after falling victim to political turmoil and poverty at home. The majority of these refugees were men without any means of support who found work in the British construction industry as cheap labor. Today's Bulgarian community in the UK is made up largely of professionals who have moved here for employment opportunities. There are also several thousand Britons of Bulgarian heritage or appearance. They often have connections with the tourism industry and reside mainly in the South of England.

Bulgaria is one of the fastest-growing countries in Europe, but its economy is still not competitive. Its poor infrastructure and lack of investment mean that most people only have access to basic services such as water, electricity, and gas. Unemployment stands at 15% among young people; for those over 45 years old, it is less than 7%.

Many Bulgarians struggle to find good jobs in the UK, so they work as cleaners, waiters, farmers, builders, etc.
