London is officially the richest city in the world. House prices are higher here than anywhere else with the most expensive house being sold in London for around £100 million.

What some foriegners call England.

An excellent city, just alive and buzzing with many cultures. Very possibly the best city in the world, though often mistaken for the only place (worth seeing anyway) in the U.K. by ignorant foreigners
English person: Have you been to the U.K. before?
Foreigner: Oh yes, I've been to London five times on holiday.
English person: Anywhere else?
Foreigner: No, there's nothing worth seeing outside the M25, it's just a barren wasteland
English person: Ignorant fool. DIE NOW! *pulls out knife and stabs repeatedly*

City in England where foreign bank accounts go to die.
A sandwich, potato chips (as Americans know them) and a Diet Coke at a Subway in London cost me the equivalent of US$14.

Capital of, and easily the largest city in the UK. Host for the 2012 Olympic Games.
At least 52 people died in the bomb attacks in London last week.

Capital of England. Capital of the UK.
One of the four fashion capitals of the world, along with Paris, New York, Milan & Tokyo.

A place rich in culture, old & new, traditional & punk-rock.

Walk through the West End and you'll see restaurants of 10003 different countries, shops which sell handbags in the shape of watering cans, and about 70 people painted silver or gold or various other metallic colours who make squeaky noises when they move and scare little children when they go to put money in their hat.

Take pictures of red double decker buses, the Big Ben or black taxi cabs. Alternatively, take any London tourist guide and cut out the front cover picture which will contain all of these things.

If you're a goth, or a little bit 'alternative', go to Camden Market.

Anyone else go to Oxford circus for the biggest and best Topshop in the world, Portobello Road or Covent Garden (especially on a nice summers evening with a slight breeze in your hair and the gentle guitar strumming of the buskers in the background. Trendies in skinny jeans sit on street corners and listen to scene music and the strange gold squeaky men pack up after a days hard work.)
London is A fashion capital of the world.

London - its a wiked place but aint all that posh like the americans think it to be.

Most of London, except the outer boroughs ,central london and most of westminster is a dump, shitty public housing everywhere from crappy council houses to grimey shitty towerblocks and big dirty estates.

If you wana see londons ghettos - then go to these places - HARLESDEN, Stonebridge, north kensington, gospel oak, BRIXTON, streatham, PECKHAM, walworth, lewisham, deptford, new cross, woolwich, Plaistow, west ham, stratford, HACKNEY, bow, bethnal green, poplar, enfield and TOTTENHAM.

Yeh they're all very shitty with high levels of crime, for example - a lot of robbery, burglary, assault, regular stabbings, occasional shootings and car-jacking goes on and most teenagers in these parts carry knives.

Most gangs always got straps and people carry converted baikals that fire 9mm ammunition, mac 10s, magnums and revolvers. Bare people in London do own guns even though theyre illegal.

If you don't want to get shot, dont go to the places in caps - brixton, peckham, hackney, tottenham and harlesden (harlesden/stonebridge has decreasing crime but once gunshots wud go off every nite, it was like jamaica around 8 years ago)

London has 3 times the amount of crime New York does just to note.
African american kid is walkin along in brixton, London and sees some british niggaz smokin weed.

"yo fam - i dint know UK had weed, i thought yall jus sipped tea and ate crumpets fo real"

BANG BANG BANG - kid gets shot

"talk to da gun pussyole, fuckin yank wasteman"
