    I have dual citizenship with the UK and I can't find a valid reason to ever go to that hellhole. Never went north of Birmingham. It looks shitty, run-down, grimy, dirty. All the people look ugly and inbred. Weather is always gray overcast in any walking/driving video, and the architecture is ugly to mediocre at best.
    Anyways, even when I was a child London looked like Islamabad. Better practice your Urdu if you want to visit.

      I have been to London. I disagree. I thought there were attractive people. Weather was good, but it was summer. Also was not dirtier than any other city. I found Paris and NYC far dirtier. Some of the new buildings are ugly, but the older stuff is beautiful

      I can get the Oxford Tube in so go anytime I'm looking for clothes or something specialist, London is THE place for that - in that you can find practically anything there. But yeah otherwise its just a big city where people live - like many others in the world. It has some charm but anything over the past 60 years that isn't rock n roll related is just generic modern city stuff.

      went in october, cold as frick but I came from canada so nothing special. stayed in city of london (got a good deal) and travelled all over, went to the bigger museums, went to a lot of good restauraunts, borough market, covent garden. walked around hyde park all day (easily one of the best parks in the world), really not sure where people get off calling it a shithole, east london was kinda grimey and full of pakis but still nicer than surrey. pub culture was great (and somehow it's even better outside of london) especially coming from puritan boring ass canada, food was great especially indian and lebanese (obviously). if it weren't so expensive I'd love to live there.

      Its fashionable to hate on it as it is stereotypically the only city foreigners know and therefore can't be enjoyed by anybody. Though to be fair that people actually waste their entire vacations there is beyond me. You could certainly spend 3 or so days there if you wanted to get to know the place, any more is silly, silly!

      As has been said a million times before, if you want to see the culture you have to go into the country.

      I went expecting a sharia law shithole. But I was pleasantly surprised at how clean and orderly it was. I also went expecting hideous women but they were way more attractive than the ones in the us. Like every race of girl was banging hot.

      Yeah, London isn't nearly as islamicised as its said to be - though in fairness there are lots of tourists from across the world and particularly Europe, so I feel its hard to get a good understanding of the demographic picture. Birmingham is far more obvious in that regard. I feel the constant overcast masks attractive features in people, at least that's the theory I came up with as to why Bongs look unattractive. Unfortunately our mainstream entertainment sector has every woman wanting to look like they're partying in Ibiza and thus uglifying themselves as much as possible.

      I was born in London, lived there for many years and have a very mixed opinion on the city
      >good public transport, but it's very expensive - can end up spending £10 a day
      >wide variety of food, but nothing special - unless you count eels and pea soup. also it's expensive as hell, including groceries which are priced up in London compared to other cities
      >amazing museums and art galleries which are mostly free but usually rammed with tourists, also lately there's been a shift towards making everything "interactive" and full of shitty touchscreens

      big downsides:
      >street hawkers and scammers everywhere in central
      >full of third world tourists who cannot behave, I once had a Turkish woman let her baby throw up multiple times on a train I was on and do nothing to stop it, just keep chatting on the phone with her friend and laugh
      >weather is miserable for 3/4ths of the year, and in summer when it is tolerable, all of Europe has better weather

      going to almost any other city in Europe, outside of Scandinavia/Germany/Switzerland/Austria and Paris would be cheaper, and London does not justify the cost

      >street hawkers and scammers
      I've noticed this in Soho but elsewhere? Yeah some tourists are c**ts tbf.

        This post pretty much sums it up. It's a big city with stuff to do and is generally nice, but not as nice as some places in the UK. Londoners praise the city too much and non-Londoners seethe too much, it's in the middle of the two opinions, it's fine.

        It’s better than dealing with the US system of wait for the bill, give your card, wait for them to run your card, then work out the tip. Having them auto add it and just pay and then get my beers is much better. But I miss the days of no charge.

    I spent about a week in London in 2014 and enjoyed my visit much more than I'd expected.

    The only disadvantages, at least for me, were:
    >sightseeing and eating out can be very expensive if you're on a budget--but I was a poorgay college student at the time, and knew I wouldn't be able to do everything I'd wanted to do well in advance
    >I stayed in a terrible fricking hostel--most of the other "guests" were literal gypsies and Eastern European migrants who treated the place like their home, screamed at each other all night long, and stole from other travelers (e.g., I remember some Italian guy had his wallet lifted from his pocket while he took an afternoon nap)--place went out of business years ago, though

    IIRC, I stayed somewhere near Hyde Park and the Bayswater station. If memory serves me right, there was a very distinct divide--off some street or another--between what looked to be well-to-do neighborhoods and a densely-populated immigrant quarter, with most immigrants being visibly Indian, Pakistani, or Bangladeshi.

    Only pointing out the latter aspect because enough morons here seem to care, though it didn't bother me in the slightest.

    I haven't been back to London since--I was on a summer-long hitchhiking trip across Europe--but had a pleasant enough stay that I'd like to return at some point or another. It's a big, worthwhile and interesting city for folks who appreciate history and don't seethe at the sight of brown people.

      I work in london but have never lived there. I don't understand the appeal for tourists but then again the only bits of london I see are the City (offices), Docklands (soulless) and some parts of the west end (shut at 11pm). Globohomosexual has turned London into the same as any other big city.

      when I was at uni I had a girlfriend whose home was in zone 2 and I did have a blast in london then, as she knew all the neat places when I visited her. and then she dumped me for a south african and moved to switzerland kekkk

    I lived in central London for quite a while, spent a lot of time in Kensington and Camden. Also spent literal months as a tourist in London back in my party days. Also travelled the world extensively and have a property just outside of London.

    Also lived in Amsterdam, Vienna and Barcelona where I currently live.

    London is a horrible, horrible city that I vowed never to re-visit. It’s become a city of shit, hollowed out people from rich to poor. It has no soul. No essence. It’s a commercialised glorified airport, rammed full of the world’s worst people.

    As a tourist, I get the novelty, actually. In reality, it’s not a nice place to live at all and spending significant amounts of time there really displays that to me.

    Personally, I wouldn’t bother. There are far nicer, more interesting places where you can spend your time.

    I enjoyed it. Went in early April. I found the Tube really easy to navigate. Really easy to get to wherever you wanted to go quickly. it's definitely a walking city. Wear comfy shoes with good support. Also, all the tourist things for a first timer are very crowded. Buckingham Palace, Parliament, Elizabeth Tower, Westminster in general is mostly foreigners. Lots of French and Dutch I noticed. Everything else is just regular London. Oh...Camden Market is overrun with tourists. Forgot that part. I recommend wandering off the beaten path and exploring. London is fairly safe, and most people are so busy with their own lives that they don't give a shit about what you're up to.

    I’ve been to London many times, and unapologetically love the place, warts and all. It’s self-obsessed and money-obsessed in ways that are kind of depressing, and there is a strange blend of shiny and new and far more decrepit than you would expect from such a rich/expensive city. But it’s got some of everything, and is a great place to eat, look at old things, and listen to music.

    Never felt like a proper city to me. Could never tell where the happening spots were, what the cultural flow of the place was, et cetera. In Tokyo, in American cities, hell even Paris and Berlin, I could immediately understand the flow of the city. London felt very slow, isolated, and lonely, which I found so fricking weird. Absolute dogshit city.

      Not true, groceries are priced up the same nationally here. The only difference is between normal Sainsburys and Sainsburys Local/normal Tesco and Tesco express etc. Obviously there are more of the smaller ones in London but it isn't hard to find a 'proper' supermarket with usual prices.

    Having lived here for 2 years (and soon to be gone for good maybe), my conclusion is that London is fine. In the same way that people overhype a place like Tokyo, London is dogged on more than it needs to be. A lot of stuff is kind of true, there are areas (i.e., Lewisham) with a lot of smelly people of a certain variety, but it never really feels too dangerous (just try to be as vigilant as possible at night or stay in a group) if you're in Central London or a nice area like Greenwich in SE London or somewhere more fancy in North London. There's a lot of variety in food options which is nice, though everything is ridiculously expensive here. Being able to tap in and out on public transport is very convenient and I'm very surprised that somewhere like Tokyo still relies of passes or paper tickets, like the North East of England (where I'm from). There's a lot of attractive women and a huge pool, if I was looking for Japanese women up north I'd find maybe 2-3 max, whereas here there are a lot of girls and the only reason I'd consider staying in London is if I got a new qt Asian girlfriend here, in which case I'd try to find some work.
    Academically, London is the best place to do stuff like postgrad degrees or PhDs. Nightlife-wise there is no shortage of bars and clubs, though clubs here are strangely dead compared to the clubs in Newcastle, and things close way too early for what is supposed to be a 24/7 city. I do enjoy chatting to people in pubs and bars here like I do in Japan, you meet some interesting people.
    If you don't like South Asians then avoid East Ham, though there are good South Asian restaurants there you'll have to deal with everything feeling a lot more "unkempt."
    All in all, London is a fairly active city in the UK, compared to where I'm from where all you see are people on benefits or OAPs walking around in town during the day while everyone else is at work, and its overall very quiet (maybe too much so for a young person).
    Would not settle here

    I lived there for five years altogether. I love it and hate it. I lived in a canal boat there for a couple of years. I found a cosy way of life and it just worked for me at the time. It's a very crowded city, and very big. Probably highlights for me were going to the Proms in summer, the parks, cycling to Windsor. the canals obviously (there are a couple of tunnels in London, including one long one that runs under Islington, not that many people get to see it). I used to ride to work near Tower Hill and go along the Canal then through Regent's Park, Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, St. James' Park, and along the Embankment and the Thames down to Tower Bridge. It was a great way to start the day, much nicer than getting rammed into a tube car and boiling on the Central line. If you like to nerd out at history there's tons of it in London.

    Downsides are, lots of crowds, lots of places that are just grim, grey, and same-y, People being miserable. Crime. Shitty weather for much of the year. Expensive as frick.

    Not the biggest authority on the matter by far, of course, since of the many times I've been to the UK I've spent at most a week in London altogether, since I usually avoid the bigger cities like the plague.
    But the time that I have spent there has been good, visited many museums (incluiding the incredible Imperial War Museum), Abbey Road studios where I mingled with many Beatle bros, walked around drunk on rainy nights and having nice late nite dinner, saw a Shakespeare play at the Globe, met nice people at hostels, and discovered a really nice pub where I had the best ribs I've ever had in my life and which has been my go to place when I find myself in London (Black Prince pub in Kennington/Lambeth).
    But my favorite thing about the city is simply the feeling of being there walking in a city with such historical weight and meaning. Won't get in any /misc/ tier discussion about the demographics and issues of the city tho, since I only wanted to highlight the positive experiences I've had there.

        Enjoy it buddy, but just a heads up: for some reason you won't find their ribs either in their online nor the physical menu at the pub, but they DO serve them. Just ask for them and you're set. They have a myriad of beers on tap, too.
        I'd also recommend going there for dinner to eat and chill, and during the day visit the IWM which is a mere 15 minute walk up the road. It's huge, it's amazing, and it's free.

    Why would anyone go to London when you could go any other city. Barcelona, Budapest, Helsinki, Tokyo. All far better cities.

    Haven't been back since I sold my house in 2015. Now I live as a NEET on the coast of Spain.

      If you plan it out you'll have a good time. Just do like a day around Trafalgar Square and Green Park, a day at Kew Gardens, a day at Greenwich seeing the park and Cutty Sark, maybe fit MCM Comic Con in if you're a nerd and around at the end of May, be sure to visit some pubs too. The one by the Hayes Gallery at London Bridge is pretty good.

    If you like women in Burqas everywhere, it's really the place for you.

      I didn't really see any more than in other European cities when I was there. In fact, far less than cities in France and Spain

        Do you even know what a Burqa is ? Because it's banned in France and Belgium.

    A beautiful city inhibited almost exclusively by traitors and invaders.

          I've been to London many times. It's one of the worst major cities in the world. All you have is to say 'muh pol'. Quite telling you can't actually say anything positive about the city, lol.

              You honestly feel safe walking around at night lol? Never see any "groups of youths" or drunkards on the street?

              You think everything in London is reasonably priced?

              You think the streets are perfectly clean?

              You think accommodation is generally high quality and isn't usually mouldy?

              You'd swim in the Thames?

              You'd put the London countryside in the top 10 most beautiful places in Europe?

              You think there's not an issue with drink and cocaine among people who go out? Never met dickhead bouncers, had your ID scanned, and been treated like cattle?

              You've never had last orders at 10pm in a London pub?

              You walk in museums and actually leave fully informed about subject matter and have a transformative experience?

                I feel safe, yeah. Drunk people won't randomly attack you lol and 'youths' only stay in shithole areas of outer London. it's a big city.
                >You think everything in London is reasonably priced?
                it depends. if you are poor, then go to cheap restaurants and pubs. if you are rich then go wherever.
                >You think the streets are perfectly clean?
                clean enough. it's not japan and korea levels of clean, but the streets are clean enough (unless you go to soho on a weekend, but then what do you expect from a party area?)
                >You think accommodation is generally high quality and isn't usually mouldy?
                what hotels/airbnbs did you stay in lol. everywhere I go is nice, and I do not stay in super luxury hotels or anything
                >You'd swim in the Thames?
                why do I have to want to swim in the river thames to think london is a nice city? if I wanted to swim, there are lakes (hampstead) and indoor swimming pools all over the city
                >You'd put the London countryside in the top 10 most beautiful places in Europe?
                london countryside is an oxymoron, but Kent countryside which is close is very pretty. UK is a small country, so getting to countryside is not a problem.
                >You think there's not an issue with drink and cocaine among people who go out? Never met dickhead bouncers, had your ID scanned, and been treated like cattle?
                what is the issue? if you want to drink and do coke, then do it, if not, don't. yes bouncers can be dickheads, but I wouldn't say that is a London thing lol
                >You've never had last orders at 10pm in a London pub?
                no, pubs close at 11pm normally and will serve until then. pubs in the city centre however will stay open until the early morning hours. most people leave pubs around 10-11pm and then go to a club anyway, and clubs do not close until 3-4am.
                >You walk in museums and actually leave fully informed about subject matter and have a transformative experience?
                yes

                Not the guy that you’re replying to, but he makes some completely valid points, some are a little out there and silly though.

                Nevertheless, I don’t really understand people like you who feel this utter desperation to defend the UK/London at every breath.

                Things like this for example

                >what is the issue? if you want to drink and do coke, then do it, if not, don't. yes bouncers can be dickheads, but I wouldn't say that is a London thing lol.

                There’s an awful, awful drinking culture in the UK. Sniffed up weirdos that can’t handle their drink with a chip on their shoulders.

                In regards to bouncers, I’ve lived in Spain, Italy and Austria after leaving the UK, VERY very rarely been ID checked anywhere whilst going out several times a week for years, even at clubs, and the few interactions I’ve had with bouncers has been nothing but pleasant.

                The moment I’m back in London it’s a completely different fricking attitude. Can’t even get into most city centre pubs after 9 without showing your ID. Was recently refused entry to one because my 32 year old, 6’7 balding friend didn’t have his with him. It’s utterly fricking pathetic.

                For me, I utterly despise London. I lived in Kensington for a while and also in Camden. It’s a hollowed out, corporate shell of a city with utterly no soul and vapid horrible people from rich to poor.

                For every one person that defends Britain on the internet, there are fifty (forty nine of them British) who make it their life's mission to shit on it. Not least you, incidentally; I've read this exact post from you a hundred times on this website (always with the very obnoxious reddit spacing that you should really cut out).

    I was just in London for the first time last month. The people tend to keep quiet and don't want to talk. Not even to fellow Londoners. Everyone's busy and always has some place to be. The few people I did engage with were very nice, though. Transit was a breeze. I bought an Oyster card at Heathrow and took The Tube all over. Doing research before I went, I was very intimidated, because the map looks way more complicated than it actually is. I had it figured out by Day 3. I stayed in Canary Wharf, and found it to be exceptionally clean, and relatively quiet as far as being a bit away from Central London. Westminster was cool, from a historical aspect. Camden Market was a big let down as far as shopping goes. It's just a giant tourist trap. Although, there is some great food to be found there. Overall, I enjoyed my stay there, but then again, I don't have to live there. I'm sure it would get old after about a month.
