It's up to personal taste, I guess. I would definitely prefer Paris, but your friends will have their reasons.

2019-12-05 22:39
I didnt expect anything, I've been there for study related reasons. Most other cities have prettier architecture and city design.
2019-12-05 22:43
The city stinks and there are people *everywhere* too. I lived in England for a year and was excited to go and see London for the first time but it was extremely underwhelming. Definitely wouldn't recommend that experience to anyone.

Here is some advice on how to survive: 1. Avoid any poor looking person in a big north face jacket with hood up on their hoodie and jacket. Most likely will have a knife and try to stab you, may also be part of a gang. 2. Avoid anyone who is covering their face, or has the majority of their body covered, its always best to remember peoples faces just in case. 3. Remember British people drive on the other side of the road (left) so be careful when crossing the road. 4. If you go to a pub, make sure you go with people or you could easily get in a fight with some drunk football hooligans. 5. If you smell any weed and see people smoking it and they look like fucking wankers and you're alone then literally run away as a lot of people who smoke it are in gangs etc, and will most likely target you for whatever. 6. If you see people taking up the whole walkway and you want to get past them and they have literally no awareness you're behind them , barge past them, if they try to confront you, make a massive deal out of it so people are aware of the situation and will probably back you up. 7. If you take the tube then always go to the carriage a couple from the front and a couple from the back. 8. If you get on a bus, sit near the doors, or have easy access to a window which you can smash to get out incase there is a terrorist on the bus. 9. Bring a stab proof & bullet proof vest with you, however wear it under a shirt/hoodie. Can save your life easily incase of stabbings or terrorist attacks. 10. Remember to avoid rush hour times because everyone is a crazy lunatic during those times and will fucking get your head trapped in the tube door just so they can get to work on time. 11. Don't go to east london (tons of immigrants), dont go to south london (literally gang hotspot) also newham is gang hotspot and the favelas of london. 12. Don't act like a jackass infront of police, especially armed police, they will probably shoot you. 13. Don't breathe directly into any of the household cavalry guards faces (Queens guards), or stand directly next to them staring at them, they will probably stab you with their bayonets. 14. There is often delays on the tubes, so busses and roads may be more busy, people will also drive less carefully when this happens.

They can attack anyone, if ur white and go up to them and confront them or even barge past they'll probably have a go at u and if u have a go at them back, they'll stab you

go to a six nations rugby match, or go to a football match, kew gardens, oxford street, soho, shoreditch, notting hill sunday market, camden town. Have a proper sunday roast at a nice pub. try to avoid stuff that is purely for tourists and in fact has little to do with london, like maddam tussauds

tbh im not a massive football fan, but the emirates (arsenal) is close to russell square, a few stops on the tube plus its a nice stadium. I suggested rugby cos the atmosphere at twickenham is great and the game is great (especially the six nations), but if u have no clue whats going on it might be a bit boring, plus tickets can be expensive too

Any museums If you're into Sherlock Holmes then Baker Street is for you Richmond Park if you want to see deers Windsor and Eaton is a beautiful historical town with a huge castle Pubs ofc, there is one of the oldest uk pubs in London zone 1, also if you like Dickens books there is some pub where he went daily. Camden Town if you're a hipster

2019-12-05 23:51
It does depend on the match. For example, if Arsenal play versus tier2 team then it is easy to buy. I would recommend to go to some local pub near Emirates, grab a nasty Ale and enjoying the match haha

The majority of London is no where near as dangerous as some people are making it out to be, it's not a war zone. If you stay out of shitholes like Barking and Dagenham you'll be fine. One recent terrorist attack doesn't mean you will die on your trip, just enjoy it. London and Tower Bridge are good, Buckingham Palace, London Eye, the Emirates cable car, etc. There's so much to do.

Depends what your interests are. Big Ben (although I heard they've got scaffolding all over it now and it's an eyesore), the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey are probably all worth a visit. The museums are pretty cool (and most of them are free afaik). Covent Garden, Kensington, Soho, Westminster and Marylebone are all cool districts, lots of stuff to do there. It's been a while since I've been to England but those are the areas that I remember at least. Just avoid the shitty suburbs like Brixton, Hackney, Blackheath and Peckham, and you'll be good. You mentioned above in this thread that you had a choice between visiting London and Paris, and to be honest with you, Paris would have been the better choice IMO. London isn't a bad city but I found it to be quite overrated, and depending on how long you're staying I'd actually suggest getting outside of it and visiting other cities if you can.

Thank you very much for the answer)
2019-12-06 00:15
No worries. Regarding other cities, you can get direct trains from London to cities like Bath, Oxford, Brighton, etc. (cities that are all worth seeing) and they're under 2h travel time, so even if you're planning on staying in London the whole time then they'd be suitable for day trips. I can also recommend the city I studied in (Canterbury), direct train links are available, it has a lot of cool old architecture and since it was mostly a student town the bar/club scene was pretty good too. But it's smaller than the other cities, and to be honest if you're only going for a week I wouldn't recommend prioritising this one. Theoretically you could even get a train to Scotland directly too, but that takes a few hours - probably too far for a daytrip. You can search train timetables here: nationalrail.co.uk/ and bus information here: tfl.gov.uk/modes/buses/ - best of luck. Also, for as horrible as reddit is for CS-related stuff, /r/unitedkingdom and /r/AskUK might be able to give you better answers on things to do than me, since I don't live there. They're usually pretty helpful.

2019-12-06 00:35
Yes, I know it very well, I live on Russell Square - good area! :) You are staying at the Tavistock, I assume? It's a very popular area with tourists. Of course make sure to visit the British Museum. There is a lot to see there and I even pop in every couple of months. My favourite sections are on Assyria, the Nereid Monument and the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus. I recommend not going during the weekend because the queues are massive. If there is a big queue, go in from the back entrance on Montague Place, the tourists don't know about it and there is never a queue. Then as you are leaving come out from the main entrance so that you can see the facade, which is impressive. For a quick bite there, I recommend okonomiyaki at Abeno on Museum Street (right in front of the museum main entrance) but they are busy so you normally need to book in advance (as a general rule, in London, everything during the weekends in particular needs to be booked in advance). There is also a nice pub in front of the museum with Neck Oil on tap. It is kind of difficult to recommend things to see and do in London because it really depends on your interests. It's not a small town where you have an obvious bucket list of things "to do" which are all within walking distance. I cannot comment much for football - I have only been a couple of times many years ago and my friends gave me the tickets - as I am really not interested in that. Broadly speaking, there isn't much to see in those areas and I would stay away. The matches are mainly attended by the British working classes / oiks, who are basically swine, so do watch yourself. I would recommend a trip to Soho and the Chinatown - well worth seeing in their own right. You are likely to get carded, but if you manage to sneak in, I would recommend a cheeky drink at Opium or Experimental Cocktail Club on Gerrard Street. Neither have signs outside and can only be accessed via nondescript doors (Opium has a more distinctive green door). If they don't let you in, you are more likely to sneak a drink at a pub. These are aplenty so wander until you find one, especially ones with lots of students. In the area where you are staying, The Queen's Larder on Queen Square is my local but it does have a more distinctly elderly atmosphere to it (which is probably why I like it). For a more youthful setting you probably need to head to Shoreditch to try the clubs and bars there. If you give me more of an indication what you'd like to do then I can narrow it down a bit more, but more broadly everything is readily available and can be found at your fingertips (i.e. your smartphone). I would try cuisines you wouldn't necessarily be able to find in Russia. Special shoutout to Assenheims 56 - worth going for a single meal to try the grilled chicken with the green sauce (which is divine - and it's dirt cheap. For more upmarket places, these can really go either way because a lot of them are obnoxious and overhyped, but quite recently I went to Simpsons on the Strand and I was quite happy with that. Galvin La Chappelle is also in a nice setting (again, need to book in advance, for the former make sure you ask for a booth). Hope you enjoy your stay. It's my favourite city in the world and I am sure you will have fun, but it can be kind of difficult to navigate for a tourist because the culture is not outwardly open. It's more of a city for living than visiting, though, but if you have money you can have a terrific life there. Hit me up if you have any more questions :) Also, again, if you manage to get in, Reverend JW Simpson on Goodge Street is terrific for cocktails and they have a cracking playlist. Again the entrance is kind of hidden so look it up in advance and keep your eyes open.
