    where is best to go to get a legit 'full english breakfast'?

    do pubs still do 'lock-ins' after they close?

    I know Brick Lane is supposed to be a tourist trap, so where is the best place now to get authentic cheap curry?

    Which is better? London Heathrow or London City airports?

      Anywhere that isn't dirt cheap. It's a fairly basic meal, so you just want to be sure they're quality ingredients and not sausages made out of brains and arseholes.

      Lock-ins are generally for people who knows the owners, a friend of a friend maybe. You won't find one as a tourist as they're not really legal. London has tons of clubs that are open to 8am and are better than a lot of raves I've been too, you won't struggle to find nightlife.

      Dunno, I don't trust their hygiene practices.

      Heathrow is one of the largest and most funded airports on the planet.

      Not OP and not a local, just speaking from my experience there.

          Tooting has loads of curry houses. And yeah, Brick Lane is a shithole for curry. If you wanted a decent one that's near there though, go to Lahore kebab house or Tayyabs.

      > English breakfast
      Go to a shop for tradesmen (Toolstation, HSS Hire, etc) at 7-8am. There will be a run down looking cafe / “greasy spoon” nearby that the most obese builders go to. Try there.

      > lock ins
      Rarer these days as you can find late licenced places easy. However in the suburbs local pubs can still be found that draw the curtains and lock the doors at 11pm without first kicking the customers out. No one minds as long as you leave quietly.

      > curry
      Go to Southall and find a place with a Devanagari menu. Ask the teenage waiter for recommendations. British Indian curries are excellent but the authentic ones are even better

      > airports
      Heathrow goes to more places and City is still slightly out of the way. Honestly just get whatever is more convenient. All of London’s airports suck and you just have to deal with it

      Why can't anyone get the frick out of my way on the sidewalks in London?

      Why isn't there anywhere to throw your fricking trash away? There are literally piles of garbage in the street with signs from the council on the wall asking for ideas from the community for how to get rid of trash. How about.....motherfricking trash cans?

      Why is your road signage so incredibly bad? In fact, just your signage in general. Every time I'm there it feels like navigating your way around is just rolling the dice.

        Or if you can't work that out, put into Google maps where you want to go, and it will generally give you the best route. If you're talking about the actual logistics of paying, you can either buy a paper ticket from the machines in the station, walk up to the gates and tap with your debit card, or buy an Oyster card from stations that sell them and keep that topped up. Oyster card is best if you need to buy longer term tickets like monthly travelcards.

      Lol when my friend from the Buckinghamshire visited he asked me the exact same question. I don't know because I'm not a fat builder. I took him to diner in Wood Green market and he said it wasn't authentic enough so I dunno.
      >do pubs still do 'lock-ins' after they close?
      Dunno I'm not a pub regular. There are three kinds of pubs, overpriced wanky hipster pubs which probably don't because of 'elf an safety, Wetherspoons which definitely does not because of 'elf an safety and the few remaining long time local pubs with the same old geezers every night. They might still do that. Those pubs stink and are rundown though.
      >I know Brick Lane is supposed to be a tourist trap, so where is the best place now to get authentic cheap curry?
      Jesus these are all basic, ass tourist questions. Again I don't know I don't eat curry but Tiffin Tin in Hornsey was decent. Not cheap though and I think it's a chain. The stuff in Brick Lane is probably horse.
      >Which is better? London Heathrow or London City airports?
      Better as in more flights? Heathrow. London City is.just a tiny backwater airport for business jets idk never used it. Best as in quality. Never used London city but anything has to be better than Heathrow.

      That has always been the case... Every district used to be it's own town or village.
      Idk why people hate the asians, they keep the rent down without the violent crime in the black areas. My only issue with Asians is that they don't mix, they try to rip you off and they don't look after the area. But the memes of them going around beating up whites are bullshit in London at least.

        >That has always been the case... Every district used to be it's own town or village.

        Exactly, which is why you aren’t a “local” you’re an ant in a giant interconnected ant-farm. Most of London is incredibly boring, rundown, shitty and incredibly expensive.

        >My only issue with Asians is that they don't mix, they try to rip you off and they don't look after the area.

        Which is precisely why London has completely and utterly lost its soul. Most of the people in the city couldn’t give a frick about its history, maintaining any semblance of its culture, its full of transplants that have moved there and have one interest at heart, which is maintaining and facilitating their own culture.

        Whenever I’m in London, I ask myself, where are the regular fricking people? You never, ever see a regular, authentic London middle class family sat out at a cafe or late evening bar. It’s like the entire city is either poncy students, millennial tech-workers, tourists or immigrants that only care about themselves. It’s like being in a fricking airport where everyone is just using it as a launchpad to get to their final destination.

        In Madrid, Rome, Athens, Warsaw, Berlin, Stockholm, pretty much everyone you meet on a daily basis is an actual local. Whether you’re shopping, at a bar, exploring a museum, it’s all long term residents. Sure you’ve got tourists and a few immigrants, but the trunk of the city is very clearly rooted there for generations. Actual, normal locals living normal lives; not trying to be a something or present a certain kind of image. London is the opposite; it doesn’t have a normal, respectable middle class family core anymore. It feels completely and utterly lost and corporatised.

        The other thing is, how filthy London is and how rundown/ugly it is. Paris is arguably dirtier, but makes up for it in charm. Berlin is maybe the only city on par for how rundown it is.

        Honestly, I wish I could nuke London and everyone in it.

            You don't take your family out to a place at central London if you're someone who lives within the M25. You go to a local restaurant or you go to the nearest Leisure Park. Pic related. Likewise you're not getting Essex girls going to to Camden Locks to get pissed and/or laid, they're going to a terrible tacky local nightclub or they're going for a "girls weekend" in Blackpool.

            To put it simply: if you're going to a tourist hotspot with minimal housing, why are you surprised you see nothing but tourists and travellers?

              Which goes back to my point about why London is so utterly fricking soulless and shit.

              In literally every other major European city, even in the most central of central tourist areas, 80% of the folks you’ll meet at the very least are actual normal middle class locals. Usually people who have been brought up there, as well as their parents and their parents likewise.

              It makes the place feel hospitable, human and an authentic place to be.

              London feels the opposite of that, which is one of the reasons why it feels so soulless and inhuman in my opinion.

        As someone who lives in another British city with irritating pedestrians. It's tourists, it's always fricking tourists. Sometimes it's just women who are so used to people being courteous to them that they don't realise that stopping in a doorway or at the top/bottom of escalators to fiddle with their handbags or get their phone out, it really fricking annoying (always make a effort to highlight how much they're getting in the way if they do it in front of me). Oddly though it's British tourists that are the problem, mostly because overseas tourists are extremely self away and paranoid.

        No bins are a holdover from the IRA putting bombs in them.

        Signage is generally pretty good, aside from lane markings being way too late for you to do anything about if you didn't know in advance what lane (plus the ever annoying 3 lane roundabouts where every lane is marked by a straight on arrow, despite the left lane having chevrons that make it left turn only).

        >signage is pretty good
        Okay try getting from your gate at Heathrow to the airport hotels and tell me how the signage is. Maybe I'm moronic but whenever I'm walking around London I simply cannot identify which street is which, the placement of the signs seems random at best.

      They're called rubbish bins and they were removed because the IRA kept putting bombs in them.

      I thought I was the only one who noticed this. I think it's because 1) there's no single standard, it's just a mish-mash of different sign types, some good, some bad 2) there seems to be an aversion to putting signs on poles so a sign gets put on a building even if it's in a totally awkward location. 3)The main routes are numbered and the signage for it is very good so most motorists just use that instead of the road name.

      do you ever look around and find it funny that there are like 5+ parallel societies at once in certain neighborhoods
      in a gentrifying neighborhood there are hipster whites, crackhead whites, blacks, muslims, other asians.

      Yeah any random Victorian terrace could be a 3 bed with some rich white couple, a council house with blacks or broken up into rooms and rented to 10 Asians.

      He is right, the signage is bad. I mean even your example proves his point. it's just a small sign perched way up there and half of it is irrelevant information such as the postcode and council. In USA it would be right over the road or pavement on a pole and would have the road name and nothing else on it. Also some of the signs are literally from the 1940s and have not been changed. Ironically I think these famous ones are actually from the 1960s. He has a point.

    Im going to solo travel to London for a few days in June. It's my fist time travelling solo so I don't really know what to expect, some recommendations on stuff to do would be great. The main reason for the trip is to visit the British Museum and going to Les Miserables.

      All the main museums are great Natural History, Science, Imperial War, London Transport.
      Camden for small venues, street food, comedy clubs.
      Sky Garden for views of London (it's free, unlike The Shard)
      Covent Garden for a nice area with shopping, places to eat, usually some form of (licenced) street entertainment
      Hampton Court Palace if you've interest in Tudor/Henry VIII
      Tower of London (expect to queue)
      All the landmarks, Elizabeth Tower, houses of parliament, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus, St Pauls, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge
      Thorpe Park (white knuckle), Chessington (family) , Legoland Windsor for theme park options
      Harrods and Fortnum & Masons for luxury shopping, especially if you want British teas/foodstuffs to take home

        all the major museums in june will be busy, but going this spring - V&A museum, near the end of the day i could just walk straight in, it is next door to the natural history museum that had a queueueueue to get in - just like the british museum can get. not that that is a problem, they go pretty promptly

      victoria and albert museum is great - it is focused on design, but has artifacts, sculptures, paitings from different eras of europe and different cultures around the world just like most of these museums do. but its true the britiish musem does have the most famosu stuff(+biggest stuff)
      all the major museums in june will be busy, but going this spring - V&A museum, near the end of the day i could just walk straight in, it is next door to the natural history museum that had a queueueueue to get in - just like the british museum can get. not that that is a problem, they go pretty promptly

      town like Norwich very comfy imo
      has medieval houses just dispersed everywhere, large grand cathedral skyline (and other nonfamous ones)
      minimal tourists
      minimal blacks
      minimal browns
      some chinese
      some "vote green" homosexual types
      it has some of the dumpy "highstreet" that is part of the quintessential british experience but also has a comfy river walk and posh village setting just outside the cathedral which is also quintessential british experience.

      less touristy than oxford cambridge and bath
      less dumpy than canterbury

      london has all the museums and all the everything. doesn't suit my personality - difficult to relax. though i like someone showing me around their neighborhood

      Getting laid is easy outside of London, small town girls generally have lower standards, not sure if that's limited to the UK however northern girls do have a reputation for being loose. The few times a girl showed any interest in me they were from up north. Getting laid in London is probably almost as hard as getting laid in NYC or LA, you're competing with BBC and guys on six figures.

      It's called transverse vs longitudinal seating. Longitudinal is better for high density traffic frequent stops because it affords the most standing room.The longer distance mainline trains in London all have transverse seating like in your picture.

      Because you can cram in far more people. Have you seen the Victoria line at rush hour?

      Ironically the Victoria line used to have some transverse seating on the old 1967 stock. The Bakerloo line still does. So it is workable on rapid transit. Modern designers just like making trains soulless cattle trucks I guess.

          You think they live completely on their own lol? Usually you’ll have 3-4 girls working at any one house. They charge way more too, think £120+ minimum. They easily make lots of money. You’d be shocked how many clients they get, I’d guess at minimum 5 a day.

      This is literally the problem with London.

      It’s a city of pathetic millennial tech/finance workers, ethnic zoomers that have their own spaces and live in their own bubbles, out-of-towners and the uber rich, which again have their own spaces and places inaccessible to you.

      London doesn’t have a normal, common core population that holds it together. My girlfriend lives in the centre of a major European city, in a very nice, beautiful area, and her family just work standard jobs, she works at a restaurant, and they all get by just fine. The same can’t be said about anywhere in London, where shitty, scummy houses which cost £35k 30 years ago now cost close to a million.

      >i was gonna try and move somewhere with more zoomers

      That's your problem. Zoomers think guitars are too edgy and the non-repetitive lyrics and occasional missed chord from a punk band bothers the generation that is used to pitch perfect AI produced electronic music.
      You're supposed to go to a Porter Robinson show, download Grindr, and suck a troony's gock in the toilets. That's the zoomer thing to do.
      But seriously London is all about /fin/ which zoomers don't like to begin with plus its incredibly expensive and too gatekeepy for a generation that is at the beginning of their careers and their parent's probably don't live in London anymore so they can't either.
      My suggestion is college towns or cities that are techy but relatively affordable. IDK what that looks like in the UK but in the US its places like Denver and Portland.

      Or just figure out how to hang with people who are a couple years older than you. The zoomers I know that aren't completely insufferable are the ones who are well rounded enough to engage people in their 20s and 30s and have things in common.

      Some kind of foreign people smuggling has always been my leading theory however I went as far as visiting one to ask some questions and she claimed to be independent. She did say she used to work in a shared house though but left because they were b***hes.

        doesn't it cause the non-ruined areas to become more expensive if some places nearby turn to shit, and the shit area will just have a negative feedbackloop stores close because there aren't paying customers, junkies move in because there are vacant stores to camp infront of, more stores close down because people want to avoid the junkies

        In many cases, these were often genuinely nice, working-middle class neighbourhoods which have been effectively colonised by Pakistanis who started moving in en masse. Local pubs start to close. The feel of the area begins to change. More people move out because it no longer fits their needs (white flight) Mosques are built. Chain stores begin to close. 20 years later the local school is taken over by some Islamic educational group, a completely fractured sense of community and rife Islamo nepotism.

    Is Fulham a good area to live in?

    • 1 year ago

      It's a weird place. Should be a shithole but the houses there are so phenomenally expensive that they're kept looking nice and on most days it's one of the least threatening parts of central London that have lots of housing. It's one of those things where I'd like living there, but for £1m starting price for a terraced house, I'd rather live a lot of other places.

      It's also got big football stadiums on either side so you get matchday crowds and drunks.

        Places like Fulham, as you described, is why I absolutely despise London.

        There are expensive places all over the world, but generally speaking, you get what you pay for. In most cities around the world, any neighbourhood or borough that has a 1m+ starting price is a prime, plush place to live, where you can experience a beautiful quality of life which ample benefits to living there.

        In London, 1m gets you a fairly unassuming, relatively small house, in a grey, drab, boring suburb with nothing unique or of note happening, with the same boring old pubs you find in any other part of the country. I genuinely don’t understand the benefits to living there.

          The fact you're 10 minutes on the tube from anything is the appeal.

          The big issue is that so many of these places used to be shitholes 30-40 years ago. They got gentrified but strict planning permission meant loads of house are still 1950s "we need to build as many houses as quickly as possible" shit whilst the brownfield sites that did get demolished became expensive apartment blocks.

          My dad used to live in Battersea and used to walk to see Chelsea. He was poor as hell. Now you'd need to be at least a paper millionaire to live there.

          There is some comfy housing in London though, in the areas that have been upmarket for 100's of years. I do like Georgian townhouses.

            I get that, but for the same money, you could literally live in a beautiful area, in an opulent apartment, close or in the centre of a lively, exciting city.

            When I bring this up you often hear "but London has better opportunities!!" which then makes me wonder, if you have the skills/money already to live there in London, you can utilise those basically anywhere and not pay London's outrageous prices and also have a better quality of life.

            In regards tot he areas that have been upmarket for 100s of years, A) They cost a fricking bomb and B) they still manage to have a lot of fricking problems despite the money. I lived in South Kensington for a while, just by the tube station. I'd constantly be accosted by homeless freaks and see balacava'd yutes spinning around on their e-scooters.
