I was watching a YT vid about the ‘don’ts of London’ (I was...bored) and most people just said ‘don’t come’. The vast majority said really nasty things about it, but as someone who wishes to study there I have to know; why do you hate it? People who don’t live there (and I agree) say it’s like a different county compared to the rest of England, but still, why hate it?
Thanks in advance!

It must be the cost of everything. It's really taking the piss.

London is different from most if not all of England, socially as well as economically. It is not for everyone whilst I like it, and also I think some people have fears about life in a large city.

Jealousy.

More seriously, it's a busy, fast-paced city. For people from slower towns and villages, that can be a bit overwhelming. On a more depressing note, it also has a very different population profile to the rest of England, which can be upsetting for Little Englanders.

If it’s any consolation my family moved from Liverpool, but at least I can enjoy a sunny warm day on a beach

I live right outside London and I think it’s great. There’s the stereotype that Londoners are unfriendly, and it’s partly true, because it’s obviously a lot more fast-paced than places in the countryside. The crowds can be annoying too, but you’ve got those in any major town/city.

The city itself obviously is great but I think spending there as opposed to the rest of the country annoys non Londoners

Good example is Wembley Stadium. The then England manager and fans agreed it would be better located in the West Midlands. Would have cost less and been more accessible for all fans in England. Built in London because it's London and was over budget, had a terrible pitch, was a couple of years late and ruined the FA Cup in the process. With St. George's Park in the WM it would have made even more sense.

Constant sneering from many Londoners at the rest of England as well. Ignorance re: North/South debate.

Noise, pollution, crime, general greyness.

And have a look on Zoopla what £1000pcm will get you in London versus other big cities like say Sheffield or Leeds.

To be fair the first bit of your post applies to all large cities in this country, it isn't London specific.

It doesn't make sense for someone to say they don't like London specifically when the reasons given apply to most other cities.

Cornwall is in the south, believe it or not. Land's End in Cornwall is the most southernly point in the British Isles.
