    You won't find Somalis that far up north just like you won't find Somalis far south

    There a literally ZERO Somalis that live in Newcastle, forget about cafes. However, I do know a couple of Somali families that do live in another Northeastern city, Hull.

    The furthest north you'll find Somalis, is in Sheffield and liverpool. Both cities, have a decent sized Somali communities, that are mostly made up of Issaqs and Dhulbahante. Some families, going back generations to Issaq and Dhulbahante sailors onboard British colonial ships

    No Somalis in Southampton, Sussex, Surrey, Brighton, Portsmouth coz some of these places are just as expensive as London. Up north is cheaper but the further north you go the shit the weather gets

    There's a lot of Somalis in Glasgow. Not as many as the 2 you mentioned but there still a sizeable community there

    He doesn't what he's talking about, he just moved to London from Kent.
    As for the question, they're Somalis in Newcastle but they are mixed with Yemeni. A pure Somali population in Newcastle isn't that much. So go to a Yemeni cafe and you'll find them there. Hope that helps ❤️❤️

    I went to Glasgow 2 years ago with my Scottish friend to see her family and as soon as we came out of the train station the first person we saw was a Somali man going to work. I laughed and said I'm safe! Queen Street Glasgow city is packed with Somalis, I met a Somali man that owed a shop he was from Kentish Town London. Lovely fella he thought I moved there, insha'Allah I'll be going back to this beautiful city and it's bloody clean.

    Lmfaooo I went Glasgow not long ago and I was in the centre (Buchanan galleries) and I remember hearing a Somalis shouting across the street talking to eachother lmfaooo it was a shock. Felt like it was Shepard’s Bush hearing the first. Glasgow imo is the best city in the U.K. and it’s cheap:2tjlv3e:
