Five Days In London

Advantagesso much to see . . .

Disadvantages . . . so little time

"...inspiration for a visit to London alone or with a group of people or, in case you already know everything, you may find it interesting to learn what foreigners find worthwhile when visiting. Perforce this will be one of my longer ops, feel free to skim! The motto of my programme is ´variatio delectat´ as the Romans used to say, ´variety pleases´ in English, I want to show my students as many different facets of the city as possible in such a short ..."

Free Capital

Advantagesif you are tired of London... etc

Disadvantageslots of people, lost of cars, lots of money

"London is expensive, everybody knows it. But as far as a tourist visit goes, the best things in London are free! What follows is my own tour of important London free of charge sights and attractions. It's not an "insider" look at hidden delights of London, I rarely if ever stray of the beaten track. All I attempt is to show to a reader that doesn't know the city that a lot of recognised major sights can be enjoyed without spending much or ..." Read review

London in Bits and Bobs Review with images

AdvantagesOne of the world's great cosmopolitan centers

DisadvantagesSo much city . . . so little time

"London in Bits and Bobs •••Overview••• Who can ever truly know this city? Perhaps if one is born and reared here, spends one's private and professional life here, explores its history, and indulges one's fancy on its many cultural venues--maybe, given all that, it is possible to begin to know London. For the rest of us, the best we can hope for is to grab hold of and appreciate small corners of this marvelous city. ..." Read review

London - a day out

AdvantagesBig place lots to do and many things to see

DisadvantagesIt's a big place - can be dirty and a bit grim at times

"London - a day out As with all my reviews, the names of the participants have been witheld to protect the innocent - me that is !! So it's around January 2000, I'm doing contract work in Leatherhead and being paid wads of cash for my troubles. The problem with Leatherhead is there isn't a lot to do apart from the pubs - Epsom is about the nearest place with cinemas, restaurants and theatres, but even that is quite limited. ********************* Accommodation ..."

The Pig-a-Dilly Line

AdvantagesLinks many vital venues in London

DisadvantagesHot, sweaty, rubbish-strewn, unreliable. Unsuited to luggage

"...with transfer passengers. Coming from West London myself, I omitted to mention The Arsenal – well you would, wouldn’t you? In recent months, I’ve only had to use the line sporadically and mainly for “pleasure”, but in almost every case, some delay has occurred. I can only assume from a sample like that, that this is now the case for the everyday user all the time. I shudder to think what will happen come “Public/Private ..." Read review

Nightmare on Euston Road Diamond review

AdvantagesLots of possible destinations.

DisadvantagesOverpriced, overcrowded, overrun with the dregs of society.

"...is the case with all London stations (terrorist bomb threats), but they have teams of sad faced litter-pickers who keep it fairly tidy. They also employ dedicated security guards to keep the place free of the aforementioned dysfunctional locals. This is both a good thing and a bad thing, as you will see. You now have to leave the main line station and enter the seedy world of London Underground. Where do you think all those drunks and nutters ..." Read review

The London Underground - Central line

AdvantagesGood way to see London

DisadvantagesDirty and old

"...a Red line running through London from side to side. Im going to explain all of the stations in this opinion and will take you on a journey along the line from East to West. Firstly, I will outline some of its history. History. -------- The Central Line was originally designed in the 1880's but did not open until 1900. The ceremony was performed by the then Prince of Wales and an inaugural service began between Bank in the East and Shepherds ..." Read review

London : The Site for Movies

AdvantagesVibrant cosmopolitan city. Lots of celebrities to see

DisadvantagesExpensive

"London has been the site for a surprisingly large number of Oscar-winning, box-office hits. 101 Dalmatians, which starred Glen Close, Jeff Daniels and Joely Richardson, a live-action version of the greatly --loved Disney Cartoon, was shot in and around London. Major locations included Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, Burlington Arcade, Battersea Park and Kenwood House in Hampstead. Elizabeth, directed by Shekhar Kapur, focused on the situation ..."

Comedy Store - A belly full of laughs

Advantagesgreat fun, barrel full of laughs

Disadvantagesget there early or book

"...street nr Leicester Square in London is without doubt the funniest night out you can have in the capital. Set in a dark basement, the Comedy Store probably fits a good 200 people sitting in a horseshoe around the stage in 2 tiers. Entering from the back, one turns left to the bars and right to the heads. There are 2 performances a night, at 8 and at 12. Both usually will feature the same act. The comedy and venue are a combination that has to ..." Read review

Eye Eye We're in London

AdvantagesGood price, superb location, easy booking

Disadvantagesimpersonal

"...central place to stay in London unless you either have lots of lolly or are prepared to use hostel-style accommodation. After the demise of the LCC their amazing office building, just across the river from Big Ben, has been turned over to other uses. There’s a posh hotel, the London Aquarium, the Dali Exhibition (Salvador Dali – famous 20th century artist) and…… …. a Travel Inn, with its purple sleeping moon sign. I’ve ..." Read review

London's Riverside Pubs

AdvantagesGreat atmosphere,good food, great fun

DisadvantagesSome can get crowded

"...Swinging London, Historic London, Cultural London or Tribal London there is seemingly something for everyone in the 600 odd sprawling miles that make-up this metropolis. Numerous tourist guides are available to point you in the direction of the "musts" - the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, the " swinging Kings Road" , Chelsea, Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey and the Changing of the Guard. A lot of visitors, however, in addition to doing ..." Read review

Great

AdvantagesGreat attractions

DisadvantagesSmells, dirty, busy, lots of traffic

"London is quite a nice city, with loads of attractions to keep occupied, but I must say it is too busy, is very dirty, smells quite bad and has too much traffic. I went to see the Millennium Dome. I think it is okay, but I certainly do not think it is worth the price and effort it took to build it! Although, it is quite good for families to enjoy a day out. Much better is the London Eye. Once you get on it you have the most fantastic views of London ..." Read review

Where the world walks

AdvantagesFantastic

Disadvantagesnot many

"I was in London in the first days of 2005. It was very very cold. Colder than i can imagine. It was the first time i was there. I stayed in a little hotel very close to paddington station. The location (i really don't remember its name, maybe eagle...) was good: nothing's special, but good at all. I had a fantastic first impression staynig there: in the past i was in scotland, inverness, edinburgh and glasgow, but nothing is remotely like london. ..." Read review

London calling

AdvantagesGreat history, lots of stuff to do

DisadvantagesHotels can be a bit expensive

"...I mean, everyone knows about London and there is so much information about the city on the Internet. But hey, every experience is unique so here is a bit about our trip to London. I have been in London one time before but that was just for one day. At that time we came in from Houston in the USA and it was quite a change to go from a “typical” American big city to a European big city. Houston is a smaller city that London but I was fascinated ..." Read review
