    i generally find in London that people are scared of you, keep to themselves, or they wanna beat you up.

    I went to Canada once and i was overwhelmed by the friendliness of everyone, it felt like heaven.

    love london still.

    Never understood the stereotype that Londoners are rude, the most insufferable people come from Liverpool...


    They don't shut up about how great Liverpool is, "ow acchsents sound the best", "ow wimmin r the best loocchan", "nottan loik a scchouse sense o' humor", "aye that stevie gerraaard"

    If it's so great, piss off back there

    There are maybe too many foreigners who only stick to their own people and speak their own languages, this alienates native local londoners.

    (Note I love foreigners and other cultures but this is true)

    Londoners are a strange breed. Don't make eye contact, don't go to brixton just barge them out the way, don't go to Brixton.

    Implying londoners are human........nice joke op

    I used to think that but english people we are just as bad.
    My old man told me today he held the door open for three english birds and every single one walked through the door without saying a word.

    It's the same in most giant cities. If you think Londoners are bad you should see Parisians...

    I dont mind if you keep yourself to yourself.
    Im like that myself but if someone opens the door for you have some ****ing manners and say thank you lol.
    Its little things like that that get on my nerves
    That does get on my nerves, but it's the only thing which comes to mind which does. I generally shout "YOU'RE WELCOME!" at people who do this.

    Actually, I tell a lie - the other thing which annoys me is when people dawdle in busy areas.

    What you have to understand is that nobody in London wants to interact with anyone else. The place is so huge that everyone becomes anonymous: the people around you stop being people and become inanimate obstacles. Everyone just wants to get from A to B with minimal fuss. If you don't share that mindset, then Londoners will probably frustrate you.

    Yeh thats why I would hate it if there weren't foreigners here, the Euro girlslike getting with us English Londoners But there are also certain countries that don't integrate well and are increasingly alienating Londoners.

    I actually found the opposite.

    I went to London recently from the North West, and everybody was very polite to me from asking directions to just saying excuse me on the underground.

    I don't think London's that bad, when you've had to travel through Paris Gare de Montparnasse during morning rush hour with a heavy suitcase ... getting from the underground to the mainline station is a nightmare enough in itself.
