    Like all big cities it's overcrowded and polluted. Living on the edge of the Peak District I can taste the difference in the air when I step out of the train station in London or Manchester.

    Women, gambling, drugs, strip clubs, crowds (including concentrations of somewhat alien immigrants/failed multiculturalism), dirt, traffic, pollution and electrosmog. Vices and hazards to mental and physical health and wellbeing :yy:

    So basically the high life? Lucky for you foo, your favourite girl ivy.98 lives in london too,ain't that a bonus. Could both go for romantic walks along the Thames maybe you can take both her and mother out to dinner after all.
    You know I think all my lung Infection issues have been related to pollution,living in a major built up area. TB is on the rise in London especially as people come in from countries where the disease is prevalent

    It's multicultural, extremely diverse. The underground subways give you that adrenaline and Oxford street is the most beautiful at night.

    Shame I don't live in ldn..
    "subways", I am guessing you are American then?

    Oxford Street when aint as busy
    And the fact that nobody speaks to you
    For example
    You could be having an asthma attack on the tube and the man sitting next to you will continue reading their metro (which is nice till you are actually in need)

    We know there's no city that beats London in this country.

    So what do y'all like about this city?

    The hustle and bustle is number one in the list for me. Getting to places. Never running out of things to do. It's not dead quiet,I couldn't hack living outside this city in the UK. And and definitely the exquisite restaurants and multicultural vibe
    London the greatest city in the UK? You're being waaay too narrow in your thinking. London is the single best city on the face of the Earth. Full stop.

    New York maybe comes close, but it doesn't beat it. London has history, and has proximity to Europe.

    In terms of culture, it is the coolest place on Earth. It ticks literally every box for what makes a great city (education, health, diversity, politics, architecture, transport), and excels in all of them.

    Show me a city that is better than London, and I'll show you a liar.

    Love Christmas shopping down Oxford Street, or those wonderful warm evenings by the Thames in Greenwich especially.
