    London isn't for the faint hearted or boring people. What's Liverpool like,no offence but that accent is just something else
    yeah, still to this day I have trouble understanding what people are saying. They talk so loudly and quickly and are always full of stories. I don't think there's such thing as a shy scouser. Liverpool is incredible, beautiful architecture, great shopping, great nightlife, amazing restaurants, got everything you need just without the business of London. Poorer parts are being regenerated in a good way, house prices are still dirt cheap. It's class. There's a place that does 70p pints, the beer is questionable, but 70p?!

    I lived in Liverpool as well for a few years so I think I have right to talk about this. It's a fantastic place in every sense of the word. There are so many things to do. The centre is affordable, great pubs, good bars if that's your kinda thing. The student atmosphere in the centre of Liverpool is great and also since I had that freedom to just go everywhere I wanted in Liverpool without too many issues financially(unlike in London) there was that amazing vibe.

    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.
    Liverpool has a very good day and night life. With Liverpool it's a bit more affordable but you still get a lot of that vibe of London. I used to love going to Liverpool one, was a neat burritos place and I used to just go there and chill with my mates.London is better though, ain't nothing like my hometown.

    Paid 70 pounds a week for rent. That is nothing short of amazing coming to think of it.

    definitely have a very restricted monetary plan...
    Basically forget about West London then bar for the odd thing if you got £100 to spare every few months.

    Shep's seems to have more designer/fashion stores. Stratford I personally like because it has a lot more variety

    Guys, I'm not actually serious. As gutted as I am that she turned me down, I think I'll get over it fast.

    I'm going to study abroad in London soon and was wondering where the best places to socialize or just have a good evening out with friends are in the London area(:
    Try Upper Street area (my favourite) and anywhere in Soho. And let's not forget the legendary Bar Italia in Frith Street (another favourite) where everyone gravitates to after a long night out partying/drinking/bar hopping etc.
