I am British and reside in the United Kingdom, so not technically an expat for the purposes of this stackexchange site.
Apart from meetup.com and social media, are there any other recommended ways to meet expats (who I can see regularly in-person), especially American/Canadian/Australian etc.
I know there are "ethnic enclaves", such as Chinatowns for meeting people who would be classified as Asian (by U.S. standards) but for other nationalities, such as American, Canadian, Australian etc. there isn't such a place.
I live in West Lancashire bordering on Wigan, Greater Manchester which isn't close to any major places where expats hangout nor is it located by any large towns, and London is too far to go to regularly.
I have no particular reason for meeting expats other than to broaden my social circle; most of my friends are British and white.
The main reason for doing this is as for meeting new people. I could use social media but that's an easy out, whereas meeting people in person takes a bit longer to build a relationship with and become friends etc.
I am new to all of this, so any advice is appreciated!
