idk, I have a lot of friends who were here and they said me that it`s much more better than Paris (I chose between it)
2019-12-05 22:37
It's up to personal taste, I guess. I would definitely prefer Paris, but your friends will have their reasons.

2019-12-05 23:01
> ugly architecture wtf did you expect lmao
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.
2019-12-06 00:05
Lul, have you ever heard of hyde park?
2019-12-06 12:17
So? Every city has parks obviously. I was talking about the lack of green spaces implemented into the streets and cityscape.
2019-12-06 12:20
I live in London and we have parks left and right, just open google maps and you will see the amount of parks around you...

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.

also make sure ur with people, also protect ur pockets e.g have like 2 fingers in them so no one can steal, dont put anything in ur back pocket if you have them. also keep a solid grip of ur phone, have 2 hands on it, so people cant just grab it from you and run off.

yes, youth violence and gang crime is pretty big deal ngl. government isnt doing enough about it. young people from less fortunate backgrounds literally have to go into gangs because they have no other opportunities in life.

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

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.

true Russian literature is very good. What did you read btw? I suggest you to read "Turgenev" "Fathers and sons" - it`s my favourite book. Moscow is not so attractive city (I live here), especially when you speak about architecture, but Saint Petersburg is worth seeing. Good luck to you xd)
2020-02-14 21:20
Dostoevsky notes from underground, crime and punishment Turgenev yes, that was after inspiration by Nietzsche Tolstoy Resurrection Not too much but these books do did influence me at some time

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.
