    What are some interesting things people should see? Google is just showing me the London eye -__-
    there's really nothing to do in london. its very dirty and crowded. you will see loads of people walking up and down and you might think they're going to work but im certain they're just walking up and down for fun. my british friends told me that many people living in london don't work. they get free money from the council. so with so much of spare time on their hands they just walk up and down london and head home when its dark.

    Do you really think the crowds in London are largely made up of people walking around for the lols?

    You could go to the imax at Leicester Square? The natural history museum is pretty cool.
    There are also some nice shops on Oxford street but it's always busy af

    There are also loads of cool restaurants in London, a few of my faves are Patty & Bun (I think it's in soho), Burger and Lobster (Knightsbridge), Shake Shack (Covent Garden maybe)

    This was all I could come up with tbh. You should have a look on Yelp for things to do. Hope you have a great time in London!!

    when I visited London, we went to look around St. Pauls Cathedral (that restaurant where the do First Dates on tv is around that area as well)- it was awesome inside, only downside is your;re not supposed to take photos (even though people did) you can probably get a tour done easily around it if your going around - t may take a bit longer to go round if you go up to the different floors, Harrods is good to look round but if your're a Northerner like me its EXPENSIVE!!! even a normal chocolate bar was like £5 - but go there to get a bag even if thats all you get (the chocolates are amazing), the Science Museum is really good but me and my family took around 2 days to look round nearly all the floors (we still didn't finish all of it), a tour on a london bus would be cool,
    and visiting harry potter world etc,
    there's a lot of good museums in London - London Eye is great - take a camera as well not just your phone as you'll be taking a lot of pictures if you don't get to go there very often

    yes definitely. I'm Danish and back home we were always told how hardworking the people in London were and the whole 9 yards but when I was in London it was the exact opposite. Anyways I googled the words 'walking up and down london' and came across a few youtube videos. This one caught my eye cos this were the scenes I saw when I was in London. Start watching from 0:57.

    It's impossible to ascertain the employment status of the people in the footage just by looking at them, and it's also impossible to conclude that they aren't actually going anywhere or doing anything (other than 'walking around for fun').
