Because seriously I'm going to die of dehydration soon, so thirsty but the water tastes like a monkeys butthole. I've been living off beer for 2 weeks. And now there's no beer left

That is...a really strange opinion to hold :s

That's really bad for the environment though, not to mention expensive (more expensive than beer!) I'd rather stick with buttholey water.

This is a bit complicated because "taste better" is quite person-specific.

Generally though, it is the ions within water which give water "taste" beyond its pure, distilled flavour. Most people are of the opinion that water containing a great number of ions tastes better.
But then there is the complication of regions. On the whole, the South of England gets more ions in its water than the North and most people from the South, as well as neutrals, will tell you that for this reason their water tastes better. Obviously London is part of the South. However, the consensus in the North seems to be that they prefer water with minimal ions, although this may be because they have been brought up on such water.

So if you are looking with water containing "taste" London will have some of the best water. However, if you prefer pure, or distilled water with an absence of ions or "taste" (you can get an idea if you've ever visited a city like Newcastle and tried the water there), then filtering will certainly make your tap water taste better for you.

Brita water filter works well for us. The filtered water taste just like bottled water.

Thanks! I think my gran has a spare (who the hell needs a Britta filter in Birmingham when the water tastes like heaven!?) So I'll be getting that off her asap!
