Newest Review: ... the wait. One of the best things about employment in London is that after work even on a Monday night - everyone goes for a cheeky pint... more
Better than Amsterdam!

Advantages: Good public transport, plenty to see and do!
Disadvantages: The odd tramp!
London, unlike many capital cities, is fairly relaxed and layed-back. The busy city has many tourist attractions, such as the Tower of London, the Crown Jewels, etc. which is proving to be a success for the tourist industry. Many people claim that London is too busy and stressful, but in fact if you're not in any rush to leave, London can be extremely layed back. The public transport networks make travel in the capital easy and stress-free, there are several excellent forms of transport such as regular buses, trains, the underground and taxis. So this is partially the reason why London is so popular, as it is easy to navigate. Also, London offers a wide variety of shops and restaurants, some more well known than others. For example, Oxford Street, one of the main shopping streets in London, has a large number of interesting shops, new and old. So obviously London has a lot of good things about it, but as with all capital cities there are the scruffy and dirty areas too. But London is so large that these do not matter too much, as there are lots of other places to go to instead.
So on the whole London is a friendly, active city, with plenty to see and do, and with the excellent transport you can't really get lost in London!
