I always avoid Oxford Street etc, until they pedestrianise the road itself i just hate the crush and congestion, not enough space for you to walk down the road without being knocked sideways,

The answer has to be yes.. I like shopping, really I do, but next sales are another thing to definitely avoid! (always!) Main thing that annoys me on oxford street is people with huge bags or pushchairs.. why oh why would you go to oxford on a saturday afternoon with a pushchair? it makes no sense!

No, but my body language and big duffle coat helped me not to get trampled. The customers generally were like animals though. I think the way you walk and behave helps a lot - it was quite satisfying in Oxford Street because people got out of their way for us and we didn't have to weave and get bashed.

I feel sorry for the people who have to work in these shops and in london in general!

Is there anything to like about it?
Camden
I was there yesterday, its so damn expensive just to eat out
Poons - chinese resteraunt just off Leicester Sq (or some other square - I get confused but it;s the one with all the cinemas) - cheaper to eat in than getting takeaway (well than getting takeaway in Bournemouth).

Driving in London is a doddle - you've just got to enjoy it and not take things so seriously.

Parking in London (or at least trying to find free parking like I always do) is a different matter altogether.

Why not/
The poor students.. it must be quite hard to find decent part time work in such an over populated city. Esp when they can pay the lowest wages allowable

It must be impossible for students to move into the city, when you ahve to really drive to bring all that stuff!

I dont get it, why do arethere some of the most upmarket and wealthy areas right next to deprived areas, how can there be so much of a market contrast in living standards in such a close area?
It's a capital city, all capital cities are like that. Bet New York's even worse.

And yes, london does rock. You'll never get bored there. I like it so much I want to live there for the rest of my life

Nah too quiet in bath, and you don't get all those nice tall buildings and financial institutions, not to mention the british library and all those shopping areas.

I'm from brighton myself and although it's a nice place I much rather prefer even bigger cities.
