i was going to stay in london for a few weeks but stayed for 4 days
i stayed in an apartment in the centre of london got it from the web site apartmentsapart.com
good apartment well worth the money and it was a lot better than staying in a hotel.the people i dealt with from the company were a good laugh and made everything as easy as possible . i also used them for a stunning appartment in edinbrugh but i will say more about that later.
london my thoughts are a lot of the people are rude all to busy caught up in there own shit i soppose cause most of them think it dont stink
you have to ask three of four times before they will give you a minute of thier time.
the underground is good apart from all the walking down to the train and up from with train especially if you have bags, try to avoide peak hour unless you want to experiance being squashed like a sardine , i think the people are so used to it nobody pays the least bit of notice if someone is jammed up against the doors ect.night life the pubs are ok a bit expensive and shopping is expensive.i needed to find a jacket and tried asking where i could buy one in the suburbs because all i could find was pubs restraunts betting shops with the odd travel agent thrown in.it took me three days to realise that you had to go to the main shopping strip where everything is (dumb hu)anyway night life dont try to go to a night club if you are by yourself because you wont get in (i thought it was strange but i got to find london isnt the only place this happpens)so if you are by yourself just say you are running late and your friends should all be inside tell them that your new and went to the wrong place.dont laugh it works.lots of things to see old buildings ect the bus tour from big buss company was a bit boring but informative. be prepared to do a lot of walking although its good for the waist line.i think london would be good for a couple going there for a weekend catching a few shows a little shopping then bye bye ,i think they would have a fantastic time although they would have spent a quid but thats life.
