London calling....but do you like what it says?

AdvantagesYou could live there for a long time

DisadvantagesYou could live there too long

"...they have been living in London for an extended period of time So to celebrate my 2-year anniversary of living in the Big Smoke, here's an ever-so-slightly tongue in cheek guide to "You know that you've been living in London too long when...." 1. You say "the City" and expect everyone to know which one 2. You have never been to The Tower or Madame Tussauds but love Brighton 3. You can get into a four-hour argument about how to get from ..."

'Cos I love London Town

AdvantagesGood shoppin, Good nightlife, Lots to see

DisadvantagesTheives, late trains,

"I have lived in London all my life and have grown up loving this city. So I thought, for those who have not yet been I would share my thoughts on the sites to see in MY city!! Shopping. There are so many places in London to go shopping!! If you want to go to huge size High Street shops then your best bet is Oxford Street. To get here just get off at Oxford Circus tube station. Opposite the tube station, is the HUGE Topshop, which is the largest ..." Read review

LONDON THROUGH THE EYES OF A DUTCH GIRL

Advantagesmy story about london

Disadvantagesmight be too personal, not just facts, but my experience

"London through the eyes of a Dutch girl, this could get interesting. I decided to write an op, because I fell in love with London, and I have only been there once. Please note that I descibed our first day in London, the way I experienced it. You won't read any facts about London, just my view. I warned you.. HOW IT STARTED -------- I wanted to go on a vacation for the summer, but my boyfriend wasn't quite interested, because it would ..." Read review

Livestyle, Culture... LONDON

Advantagesgreat city, friendly people, a lot of "sights"

Disadvantagesnone

"...suitcase for a trip to London I had few visions of this city: many people, noise and mud! But I had to ascertain that it isn´t like in my "horror-visions" - I have never visited a city like London: warm, friendly and the cleanest I´ve ever seen! Of course there were more people than in our german cities or villages; surely it´s the capital of the United Kingdom. But although there was many people, everyone of them was friendly and was (for example) ..." Read review

~ * Proud To Be British * ~

AdvantagesSightseeing!

DisadvantagesExpensive!

"...Jubilee celebrations taking place in London this bank holiday weekend, I thought that I would share with you my experience of London. Now, up until the Easter bank holiday this year, I had never visited the capital of the United Kingdom, despite it being somewhere I had always wanted to visit. Whilst my review may not cover all topics (I was only in town for the weekend), I will now discuss my experience of London. Hopefully my review will help people ..." Read review

"...buy from touts. ***THE SOCIETY OF LONDON THEATRES*** Visit www.officiallondontheatre.co.uk and click ‘Special Offers’.

Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves - and me

AdvantagesEccentrics; Variety; Culture

DisadvantagesCan be a lonely city to live in; Money; Money; Money

"...home! Let me explain. I lived in London for 6 years, and managed to escape from it just over a year ago. Let me continue to explain. London is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe and quite possibly the world. It has a massive history. Authors have written relentlessly about it. Artists have painted and photographed it. Singers have composed songs and sung about it and American and Japanese tourists have raved about it’s ..." Read review

London by river - sighteseeing with a difference

AdvantagesA whole new perspective on London

DisadvantagesMore time consuming

"...would be possible to see London entirely by boat. After a little research, I've decided that it's definitely do-able and here's how I'd go about it. '''Hop-on Hop-Off River Tours''' City Cruises is one of the original, open deck sightseeing cruises in London, and also does evening dinner and dance cruises on the London Showboat. Their River Red Rover sightseeing ticket allows you to make stops at Westminster, Waterloo, Tower Pier and Greenwich. ..." Read review

Loving London!

AdvantagesExciting, lots to do, atmosphere, shops, so much to do!

DisadvantagesCrime, pollution, noisy

"...people have never been to London before! I really hate narrow-minded comments like this. Sadly, it’s pretty much the mentality of a lot of towns. We don’t live in a safe world. It isn’t full of rainbows and butterflies and fluffy bunnies! We have faith in our police, security and intelligence agencies to protect us. They do a pretty good job. London is our capital city. It is very large, cosmopolitan and busy. It has that special atmosphere that ..." Read review

THE CITY WITHOUT WALLS

AdvantagesPLENTY TO DO

DisadvantagesCAN BE EXPENSIVE

"...early part of this century, London expanded greatly. What was once open field ,market gardens or commons,with maybe the odd farmhouse or barn soon became overwhelmed with houses. These were the suburbs of london. A comercialised London had begun a city that has no walls.. So what can I tell you about London now? Well London is a very busy place. The transport system is good but hetic with many buses,trains,coaches and river trips, in and out ..." Read review

The big hairy monster that is LONDON

Advantagesvariety, action, lively, exciting

Disadvantagesexpensive

"...go and people to meet. London is THE place to live if you are young - it is close to all the action. London is extremely expensive to live in. In fact it is the most expensive place to live in the entire country. But wages are now beginning to reflect this, and it is likely that employers will increase your pay if you are working within the city. Temping agencies are always searching for new employees and are a great place to start if you are ..." Read review

MY FAVOURITE CITY

AdvantagesA brilliant city that has everything

DisadvantagesExpensive

"London is my favourite city and I wouldn’t trade it for any other city in the world. I know London like the back of my hand; composed of boroughs and areas London is a very large and complex city that can take years to know. Having grown up in London I have seen the city change over the years. Although London has become one of the most expensive cities in Europe, it still has not lost its appeal and continues to draw in the tourists in numbers. London ..." Read review

What about East London?

AdvantagesSee above

DisadvantagesDo be wary late at night, but then that applies to all of London, really.

"...furthest east most visitors to London get is the sightseeing in the City; for nightlife, eating out, hotels, parks etc. they stick to the West End, Kensington, Chelsea etc. East London has the unfair reputation of being one great grimy, poor, dangerous council estate. However, Londoners, especially young Londoners, know it as an area 'on the up'; Spitalfields has already had its first million-pound house, and the Shoreditch area has taken over from ..."
