    I love the buzz of a big city.
    I love the good(ish) transport links and frequent buses.
    I love the tube.
    I love the fact that the city never sleeps and there's never a shortage of fun things to get involved in.
    I love meeting new and interesting people.
    I also love the multicultural atmosphere and the fact that ppl in big cities tend to be more open-minded.
    (Any fellow Londoners want to add to the list?)



    I must admit that there are downsides:
    pollution, high rent/cost of living, smaller backyards, parking, traffic jams, crime and so much more. But I still wouldn't trade.


    Londons just another big city where your another ordinary person in the crowd with nothing specail to offer...however having said that I'm a city person myself...I love my city waaay to much Im not even sure if I want to move away for uni anymore?

    theres a lot more to do in the city, more things to look forward to its the place to be!!

    The history and architecture? There's always something to do, an exhibit or show.
    What I love most is a random person can become a friend for 5 minutes before you go your separate ways

    aren't londoners famous for being notoriously cold towards strangers?

    City all the way. It's better.

    It's worse for its lack of space/more crime/more pollution/crazy drivers/dearness.

    I wouldn't want to live anywhere else in the world than where I do now to be honest.

    Most certainly a small town person. A place like Stafford or Lichfield just has that much more character, charm and allure than a big, crowded and smelly city (and which city isn't?)

    Cities are good, don't get me wrong. Somewhere like London always has something interesting on like exhibitions and such. At heart though, I'd suppose I'm a country person - I like the peace!

    City for sure. Where I live at the moment is basically the outskirts of about four small towns, and even then I'm bored ********. I used to live in a small city, and even though it was beautiful and I would live there in a second if I got the chance to, there was still sometimes hardly anything to do. So I'm not just a city girl, I'm a BIG city girl. Hong Kong was definitely my cup of tea.

    for me anything with more than two shops counts as a city ,seeing as i live in a bog.
    now now - you forgot the pub for every two shops and five people there must be a pub

    I choose town too! But a large town not one in the middle of nowhere. The thing I find with places like London is that if you've been raised there, then you seem to love it, but I can just imagine it being a bit hard to 'crack' London for people without that natural city instinct lol. I'm sure I'd feel different if I lived there though!

    Big city fo sho. There's actually a surprising amount to do here to be fair, being among the largest of the 'large towns', but after living almost all my life here, it feels awfully claustrophobic now. Bring on London/Birmingham :top:

    That said, I'm not adverse to the country. There's national park within 10mins from Boro - you couldn't say the same for many of the UK's biggest cities (Sheffield would be an example).
