London is an incredible place to live. Londoners have a terrible reputation for being cold, moany, rude and unsociable. Trust me, the city and those living here are not that bad. Londoners are nice (I promise!), and all London is a bustling, exciting city and you never get bored.
The number one reason to love London is that it is the most amazing city in the world.
Let me tell you why…
People are friendly! We may frequently get pedestrian mode and sit in silence on the tube, but us Londoners are quite friendly indeed.
London is the perfect place for those socially awkward. You don’t have to worry about speaking to anyone.
The Night Tube A lifesaver and worth the long wait.
There’s a pub on almost every corner so you’ll never go thirsty. Or sober.
There are so many quirky bars, restaurants and cafes…
The walk on the Southbank and over the Thames. You feel proud to call London home.
London is so full of life. It has so much going on and always someplace new to visit.
Being upset when there’s a 10-minute wait for a tube. But remember that it’s nothing compared to when you lived out of the city, and you had to wait an hour.
Bottomless brunch Drinking plenty of glasses of prosecco before lunch is an actual thing in London.
The Underground is great. Ok, most of the time. We can always do better. Now it has also wi-fi.
Always expect the unexpected in London. Like John Legend performing in St Pancras.
