British migration to France has resulted in France being home to one of the largest British-born populations outside the United Kingdom. Migration from the UK to France has increased rapidly from the 1990s onward. Estimates of the number of British citizens living in France vary from 170,000[2] to 400,000.[1] Besides Paris the British living in France tend to choose the regions of southern France, Brittany, and recently the island of Corsica.[3][4][not in citation given]

Demographics

Population size

There are conflicting estimates of the size of the British community in France. Estimates range from 172,000-400,000.[5][6]

The main destinations of British migration to France apart of Paris are rural areas of France and the southern areas of the country. The major regions chosen by this community are Aquitaine, Occitanie, Brittany, Poitou-Charentes and Corsica.

In Eymet, Dordogne, British expatriates account for a third of the local population.

Today

In 2014, the National Statistics Institute (INSEE, for its acronym in French) published a study, reporting that there are double the number of British immigrants, this increase having resulted from the financial crisis that affected several countries in Europe in that period; as a result, this has driven up the number of Europeans living in France.[7] The British immigrants in France show a 50% growth between 2009 and 2012.[8][9]

Other European immigrants in France: Portuguese 8%, British 5%, Spanish 5%, Italians 4%, Germans 4%, Romanians 3%, Belgians 3%.[10][11]

Displaced workers of Europe in France are: Poles (18% of the total), followed by the Portuguese people (15%) and Romanians (13%).[12][13]
