I grew up in London for my whole life and I just recently started to appreciate the fact that I was born and raised in London. The city is diverse and there is so much to do. You are surrounded by lots of different cultures. However, some parts of London are obviously better than others...and the biggest downside is that it is quite expensive.
you can feed the birds.... tuppence a bag
Only visited Camden and that was nice.
I live in Lewisham, South London (LOL on list of most dangerous places in London even tho its nah da deep) and its generally close to central London (but still a 1 hour bus journey!!). Theres hella roadmen round here, and theres always something to do, I wouldnt live anywhere else. Houses are mad expensive, but not as much as in other places in London. For school trips its usually the generic central london trip to the national gallery, tate modern, science musuem, zoo etc. Theres never nothing to do, but in my area its kinda rough, like some man git stabbed yesterdsay im pretty sure
Lots of nice edgy places to go to for urban exploring or street art. I like living here, however the weather is very unpredictable. The tube system is fast and good (however tubes can get so stuffy, hot, someone will grab your butt etc). Trains are terrible.
well i've lived here my whole life, wouldn't want to live anywhere else. screw what the media says, my perception of my London is very, very different to the bias medias perception
its full of life and vibrancy and the people are very real here. a city like no other
