    I've lived in London for the past 22 years (born here) but i'm starting to seeLondon to have one of the most depressing atmospheres.



    - Its too historic, you don't feel as if its really moving forward with anything. The houses are all the same red brick ugly style (unless you have real £). Its full of museums and dull rivers.


    Any thoughts?
    personally i think the historic old buildings in london are incredible - people come from all over the world to see them still standing, and rich people pay stupid money to live in them

    I've lasted 26 years so far in London: the city's great, but living amongst Londoners who are constantly evaluating how much longer they can hack the pace, is undeniably depressing.

    Reasons:

    - The weather is always terrible. Its too dull. You have to wake up to cloudy skies and a hidden sun, then sleep to terrible winds and covered stars.

    - Its too historic, you don't feel as if its really moving forward with anything. The houses are all the same red brick ugly style (unless you have real £). Its full of museums and dull rivers.

    - Tax depresses you. You have a nice salary of £50k? Get ready to give 14k away. You can then try to save your pennies for the next couple of years till you manage to save enough to take a mortgage on a small house outside London.

    - NHS is downgrading year after year.

    The list goes on.

    Any thoughts?
    To be honest ive always hated the city by the way im from Nottingham I find the city too mainstream its like a centre point for tourists etc.... I hate the busy streets and the people tend to give of somewhat a negative vibe.

    I've recently started visiting London now and then because I have some friends who live down there. I think I've gotten used to there being so many people around. The houses seem really ancient though, but well, I live in Milton Keynes where most houses were built within the last 30 years or so so I guess it's just because of what I'm used to. I will say, however, £5 for a tube journey that I could walk in 40 mins? I'm not doing that.
