Images Of London

Covering over 600 square miles, London is by far Europe's largest city. But don't let this put you off - many of its most famous landmarks are within walking distance of each other. From Big Ben and Westminster Abbey you can wander the streets only to find yourself at the bright lights of Piccadilly Circus. The English capital is also perfect for those who enjoy living life at a fast pace. With 47% of the city's population between the age of 16 and 44, there are fewer places on the planet with as much energy as London.

    A bit dissapointing

    Fu*kin' expensive and overrated city! Its nice but there are others like London or much more beautifull... Expectations were obviously high about the number 1. city in Europe but the reality is dissapointing! I'd like to emphasize the city is nice but not so much as its tought by somebody who hasn't been in there! A place with these attractions must have at least half prices!

    Expensive town

    Negative things : Prices too high. A way to protect the "City". That's why people are nice, polite, everything is clean. All different people who make a place interesting has left the place to live in the suburbs in comparison with the 80-90's. London has become a museumlike many european cities, not as pittoresque than before. A bit boring. Positive things : Concerts and alternative looks.

    Insider Tip:Don't go to official exchange, walk 30 meters, you will keep money.

    Must Have Been To

    A city every globetrotter should have on their list. very impressive sights (if sometimes expensive to get into), beautiful, very large city centre, interesting places basically wherever you go, great atmosphere (noisy at night in the city centre) hoards of tourists of course, but enough "natives" to balance them out. Superb public transport (not cheap, but extremely well organised and efficient). Londoners in general very friendly and polite (and very forebearing with aforementioned hoards).

    Insider Tip:Shakespeare "The Globe Theatre" performance as "groundling" (=standing directly in front of the stage), quite unforgettable experience for just a few pounds

    London

    I thought the city would be ancient, was disappointed. Really expensive, lack of public bathrooms. Pubic transport is cramped and pricey.

    Insider Tip:Walk all around zone 1, its not far.

    London is amazing

    London is an amazing spot, but its crazy how expensive everything is. The Euro to Pound rate doens't make it any better. Will come back at any time.

    Insider Tip:Shopping in Camden is a absolute must.
