    Parts like Chelsea, Uxbridge, Sloane Square are great, but for a place that expensive, most of London feels like a poor ghetto.

    The houses are very pretty, it wouldn't appeal to me but I see why people would want to live there, most of London looks awful, even central, some nice museums and monuments surrounded by run down high streets.

    Whenever I've visited Manchester I've been shocked by why it gets such a bad rep? Sure it might rain, but it's home to a few of the largest football clubs in the world, it held the commonwealth games and has incredible sports facilities for public use, shopping is about as good as you'll get in the UK and it's nice and lively. Transport is half decent and it's pretty good for food all at a decent price. Oh and Mancunians are a friendly bunch, so that's a plus.
    I disagree with pretty much all of that. .

    I just can't make myself hate Brum. The people are super friendly, it's got different cultures in a very real way, (London's multiculturalism is commercial BS). There are some wealthy parts which are lovely so it supports aspiration, the only reason to make money in London is to retire from your hell.

    You've got Man Utd, Man City, National Squash Centre, Veldodrome etc. Trafford centre, Arndale, plus the high street, friendly Mancunians, food and the transport is subjective but otherwise most of it is kinda factual....

    Greater Manchester then seeing you're being really being picky. I mean if London was considered to be the city of London only then frankly it's a bit ****. Likewise nearly every other major city in the UK. The places in the wider urban areas extending immediately from the main city centre in my eyes are part of the city.

    Where do you define Manchester to be?
