Well I will hand the museum/cultural life to London. There's got to be an upside to being part of an empire which has declined within recent memory. 

(I've got to concur with Toby btw. Australia is a pretty good option in a lot of respects. Outside of Melbourne, Perl jobs (as opposed to jobs with some perl) are a bit thin on the ground, but personally I telecommute to both my jobs (one at the local university and almost completely not a perl job, a 20 minute train ride away, where I have a badly ventilated  office with no windows in a region with spectacular geology and expensive geotech issues, the other to a distributed team with an interesting set of time zones from this side of the international date line.
