    Only once. I just asked the person at the service desk and they gave me money but obviously I had to pay them back. I couldn't get home and only had a pound in my purse and some pennies
    That's weak talk. Should jump barriers easy.

    I have a two part question for the OP.

    1) Is that actually you in your profile picture?

    2) If so, will you marry me?

    Gotta say London is an amazing city. There is something to do pretty much everywhere. East, West there's always something to do.
    Amen. Surprised there's no London haters on the thread yet!

    Some people are obsessed with British culture, other people can't even stand British accents... it's the same with how the English feel towards Americans.
    Because I'm southern and 'speak properly', my accent was very well received. I was called posh a lot. But some of other Brits who had northern accents had to repeat themselves quite a lot.

    Don't really know what there is to hate about it especially if you come from a boring place and are new to it. I guess some people don't like the busy London life

    Tbh I don't even live in London, and it's true, the air pollution and busy london life gets to me, I love chilled out places and mentality. But i'm also practically nocturnal. I love that London's a late night sort of place. Currently living in Liverpool, which is just amazing, but I'm originally from about 20mins train from London.

    The funniest thing is 10 years ago they would be crime wave hotspots and they're pretty good now. Hackney probably should be added to this.

    If you have money, head towards the West End or west central, theatres, bars, clubs etc.

    The obvious hotspot is Stratford Westfield(what you would call the "Mall" it's huge and the Olympic stadium is right next to it.

    London is a massive City though and there's things to do whether you're in east, north, south, or west london.

    London isn't for the faint hearted or boring people. What's Liverpool like,no offence but that accent is just something else
