    Loads of Times...

    I used to live near London and I've had some good times there.  I still haven't been there for New Years... I'm thinking about doing it this year.  That would be awesome!

    I Spent A Couple Of Days And Am Going Back In April

    On my way back home to the USA in December (for Christmas), I stopped in London for one day and one night. It was great fun. I was able to see all of the tourist attractions (London Bridge, Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace, Parliament, Big Ben, etc.) Luckily all of those...

    A Little Trip

    When I  was 10 , my moms' mom (we call her Gigi) took my sister and I to London. I'm from the soutwestern part of the US, and so London was a bit more than a 'hop across the pond' for me. To my 10 year old mind, it was across the WORLD. We packed, and I being a book worm, had no...

    London 1990-something

    I'm not real sure of the year, but when I was 10, my grandma took my sister and I to London.    First, she told us we had a 'surprise' to pick up at the airport. We went and got our "surprise" which was my grandma with airline tickets to London. I think when I heard "....going...

    Not For Long

    Just two days. I didn't have the time to visit. But I thought it was different. People are different. Some of them were just dressed as bags, and nobody looked at them, or criticized. That was nice. It looks to be a very cultural city. Though it's rather "grey", and...

    Study Abroad

    I went to London in Fall 2008 for study-abroad. It was amazing! I was only there for about 3 1/2 months, but that was enough to fall in love with the city, and the Thames as well! I had never been to such a large city before, and I think what I really loved was the fast-pace, and...

    It's A Cool City

    Yeah, lived in London for 7 years, stayed in the 'eastend', Bethnal Green & Whitechapel. I really enjoyed it but wouldn't live there again. I only live 50 miles from it now, pass through on my way to other places but don't linger very often. Occasionally meet friends in...

    Unplanned

    I went to London (which had been a dream of mine forever) this summer. I hadn't made any plans whatsoever. I figured I'd find a hotel, or maybe rough it a few days, perhaps take the train somewhere up north or something. This turned out to be a rather disastrous plan. I arrived...
