Ite first off im not trying to be a bigot or offend anyone. Personally, I have lived in, India, Spain, Gibraltar and London and i will say that London is my least favorite. I love that there is absolutely loads to do like movies wireless etc, and I have a lot of good friends here.
However, I get the impression that Spain and Gibraltar were better in terms of living. Transport was so much more manageable in Gibraltar, and everyone knew everyone, so there was a feel of community among us, whereas in London, it just feels like an open wilderness of people. What are your thoughts about living in London (I guess I should know a bit more about other areas bc I live in central west, and my parents are quite strict on me going to other areas)

Depends what you're looking for, it was very culturally (art, history, music etc) stimulating for me and exciting for me to explore the vices of the world and have a cool job. But definitely one of my lowest 'living quality' experiences, in terms of what accommodation i got for my money, the freshness/quantity of food on a budget, general transport experience, and quality of community. Had some of the best crazy times i've had but at the same time was the most stressed, unhealthy and lonely i have been so far. (But that's just my experience)

Well it's difficult to answer greater London is which is a majority of what London is known for varies, as some of the London burrows are the most deprived area's of the UK and some are incredibly rich and wealth, the actually London city (central London or whatever) is incredibly rich and has a good quality for life so really it depends where you live in london

The large cities are dead, the smaller cities are mostly dying and the towns and villages are next on the chopping block for the death of Britain.

mate ..... what ?? i agree but would say the otherway around. fishing and post-industiral towns and villiages are dead, even the richest villiages in the UK are dead and a bit of a joke. I.E: Ilkly. EX-small cities that lack any purpose now, post once again fishing and mining are dying, IE: hull, but most arent, and the large cities are doing fine ...

Sure some of the smaller places are pretty awful but London and many of the other cities are so 'vibrant', all they look like now is any other Major city, with the skyline being destroyed by modern architecture. The real Britain lies in the countryside and smaller villages.

i gotta disagree, youll see better and Much architecture from all eras in most modern cities, barring maybe hull, that was bombed to **** in WW2, even then the 5ish% of housing that remain old houses left in hull, will probably be more than most town and viliages have. And im sorry ive seen a good amount of england, and most its small and large cities ( since going un i and before, since as you might know, your mates end up going all over ) and most villiages and towns are like a said a joke compared to london ( some like grimsby and scunthrope are a shithole- look like a wartorn country ). they lack services, some villiages have like 3-5 buses a day ! were as in major cities you can have great public transport of mile better than anything in a town or villiage. the shop also lack heavily in those places, as well as things to do, places to eat ect ect. if you like villiage life i guess its okay, but personally i havent found a single villiage, worth living in over london or even newcastle. That fact is further proven by the fact, i havent meet anyone under 30 from a small villiage that doesnt want to get out of it ASAP. and the real britian is britian with london being one of its major gems mate, not somewhere with one unnamed conor and a burned out pub ****-hole of a villiage.

Central london is overrated. Its so loud and full of tourists. I would rather live in india, its meant to be loud and in my opinion the feel is j so much better despite the quality of life being much lower

London isn't as bad as some people make it out to be. Of course there are certain areas to avoid but it's alright.

People go to London because it's where the money is. There isn't any other good reason, plenty of better cities in the UK.
