Abstract. Retirement migration from Paris and London are compared by means of data from the OPCS Longitudinal Study for London and from the Échantillon Démographique Permanent for Paris. The levels of retirement migration for men and women from different zones of each capital city are examined and the social class differences in retirement migration in London and Paris and the different role which housing tenure plays in the two cities are highlighted. The authors go on to examine the regions to which Londoners and Parisians move on retirement and the type of housing which they take. In all cases, marked differences are found in migration behaviour between newly retired men and women in Paris and London, linked to urban structures and cultural differences.
