Guy: The ignorant bastards.

The Capital of the world, only rival New York. Incorporates the best of both Europe and America. Unlike in New York the Tube stations are Clearly signposted. Unlike New York the streets are all squigley and it is really really old. South of the river Thames is a mythical land that those on the North talk about in nervous whispers, but it actually isn't that bad and is fast becoming the only place in the city besides cardboard boxes that is affordable to live in. Stand in the middle of the Millenium footbridge and turn around in a 360 degree circle. Go on the London eye. Don't visit the London Dungeons. Go shopping on portabello road, or in Camden, not in Covent Garden. Go to the opera in Regent's park, and to speaker's corner in Hyde park on a sunday afternoon. Trafalger Square in the evening, Leicester square at mid-day. Karl Marx and Charles Dickens are buried in Highgate cemetary. Ealing is queen of the suburbs.
All of life is there.

The capital of England, but not the only city there. No americans seem to realise that not all english people are from london, and that we don't all eat crumpets and go on the hunt.
"Where are you from?"

"England"

"Oh my gawd, I love london"

"No, not London. Manchester."

"Oh my gawd, I love london"

"Err, no, I'm not from London but I am from england"

"Oh my gawd..." etc etc

Hip ethnic enclaves infused with homosexuality, poverty, and royalty.
The world's most cosmopolitan city, where the pulse of Europe erupts.
Coolest subway system in the world!
Most comopolitan city in the universe!

The most cosmopolitan city in the world, with the coolest subway system
(the underground). Proper and sophisticated yet urban, ethnic, and clubby. Best food out of any Euro city.
A city that feels like a big disco, sophisticated yet chaotic

The world's BEST city! Beats Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool.

Excellent travel system, best shops, lots to see and do.
Mate: I'm bored, how about we go to Birmingham?
Me: No way, that place is a shithole. Let's go to London instead.
Mate: Yeh, good idea! Birmingham's full of inbreds anyway!

The most schizophrenic, multicultural, cosmopolitan and straight-up brilliant city you'll ever visit.
'When a man is tired of London he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.' - Samuel Johnson, 1777.
