Is it shit? Posted on July 24, 2022 by Anonymous What is there to actually do here? Is it past the prime of actually being a good place to be?
>What is there to actually do here?
what would you want to do?
Like fuck black girls and look at old shit
I like fucking black girls but I definitely wouldn't go to London to do it unless I lived in another part of the UK and couldn't leave the country.
i dated a black girl who lived in london for a while
she was completely crazy
i miss her
>What is there to actually do?
Oh fuck off, what a pathetic low effort thread. I don't even like London much but what an obnoxious question
London is one of the biggest cities in the world. You can find almost anything you want.
But it's so big and busy that getting from one place to another can take forever and it's also expensive.
It’s not that big. Three times smaller than Shanghai.
>comparing any city to the size of Shanghai
>Three times smaller
what does that even mean?
do you mean it's a third of the size?
i mean that would be amazing, a city on a tiny island being smaller than a city in the most populous country on earth. utterly amazing anon.
but chinese personal space boundaries is 3x smaller than british so it feels equal
Not white. Not pretty. Not cheap. Not refined. Not cultured. Not beautiful.
If you want darkies and beautiful women, go to France. If you want whites and beautiful women go to Germany.
lol the butthurt on this board is hilarious sometimes
london, "not cultured". it's one of the fucking culture capitals of the world and has been for centuries
>it's one of the fucking culture capitals of the world
yea, Bradford has been named "city of culture" for 2025 and it's an unbelievable shit hole too
London has the only decent Mexican restaurant in all of Europe. Better Indian restaurants than India. Museums full of interesting stuff looted from the Empire. Poncy high culture stuff like opera and ballet. West End theatre for middle class coach trips. Gigs. Pelicans.
If you like cities at all there’s something for you in London.
whats the name of the mexican restaurant
Who is Ronald Reagan?
What're the best Indian places? I'll be there for 3ish days in a month. I've already done the Abbey, Kensington park, British Museum, and Buckingham last time I was there right before the pandemic, and enjoyed Dishoom then. Probably hitting the Tower this time, but otherwise have almost no plans. Also any cool pubs worth going out of the way to? Enjoyed Defectors Weld last time.
Punjab in Seven Dials is the oldest North Indian restaurant in London, their chicken tikka is great. As far as unique pubs? There’s the Champion in Fitzrova, the Churchill Arms in Kinsington, the Ten Bells in Spitalfields, the Dog and Bell in Deptford, and Dogstar in Brixton. Off of the top of my head at least.
go to the pub
London is a failed society
Party and fuck with girls that have Disney princess accents.
I had no opinion of the place before I went and now I can't wait to move there and find a cute feminine brown Brit girl that sounds like royalty to wife up.
Kek, disney princess accents in London? Watch videos of Essex Girls speaking.
If you want naive rich girls speaking in received pronunciation, you go to sussex and go to horse riding events and country fairs.
its overrated by the people who love it and underrated by the people who hate it.
for sighsee purposes its a solid B-tier city that has a lot of A-tier amenities and unquestionably some of the best city infrastructure in the world.
but really, it very obviously just aint what it used to be. the UK just totally sacrificing its smokestack economy and going too far with multiculturism hurt London's soul. it has taken on this bourgeoise persona in the last couple decades while its aristocratic soul fled for the hills. conHispanicuous consumption has really done a number on it. it is probably the most American city in the world outside of America in this way, and even vastly more American than many places in the USA.
I don't hate the USA at all and don't necessarily believe that needs to be a pejorative, but in this case it has simply not worked out. Add in post-industrialization malaise (despite some very prudent land use schemes by what is an impressively nimble, imaginative and smart local government) and an overindulgence of foreign labor and its just not a great reciple.
still the fundamentals are all there and it has that if-it-exists-you-can-get-it-here quality. but its not best-in-class in any category anymore, and its flaws are not endearing.
I get the novelty, red telephone booths, old black cabs, le Buckingham palace. It’s fun and relatively interesting for a short period of time.
That being said, beneath the surface I think London is a horrible city. I lived in central London for a while and also used to go pretty much every other weekend to party.
London for the most part is fucking ugly. Insanely soulless and bland for the most part outside of a few select areas. Grey, dull and lifeless. Worst part is the people. Unironically some of the worst citizens in the world, especially the immigrants. In fact, the wealthy immigrants are worse than the poor ones in London. I guess that’s the same for places like NYC though.
great place to party
