  • I haven't been to London for 40 years and it seems they haven't cleaned the buildings since then. Yes, it would cost a fortune to pressure wash them ( gently, because some of the buildings are over 500+ years old ) but there must be a way to do it. With all the tourism money they take in you'd think there would be constant cleaning going on. I loved seeing all the London Sites that Robert did and did many tours on my own outside of London and took the trains everywhere to Scotland and took a hovercraft over to France , I'll never forget that great trip.

    One thing that bugs me though is that great big Ferris wheel (London Eye) It just does not belong aside ancient buildings and bridges it is out of place like the carnival came to town and forgot to take it down and take it with them. The ultra modern buildings bother me too, couldn't they have built them away from the historical buildings. just my opinion.

  • It seems that London needs a lot of steam cleaning on the buildings, statues and bridge railings. Don't think I'll make any trips from the Sunshine State to London any time soon. Too bad that some London buildings don't allow indoor pictures. Here, the only places where they don't allow indoor pictures are strip clubs.

  • The best things in London are free: The British Museum, The Streets, and a bush at one of the parks to pee behind.

  • so what did you think of London? would you visit again.. plenty of the museums are free to enter incase you come again 🙂 the london is worth it for a once in a life time ride but it is way much better in the evening when you see london all in its shining lights 🙂 (i live 30 mins from london liverpool street)

  • some constructive criticism to this visit. london is not gloomy all year round. its advisable to check for the more sunny months to visit. it also rains in paris a lot and can be gloomy but you caught paris on a more sunny day. secondly, you hardly entered any important interior, u focused on some observation decks which gives u an arial view. to me both cities have an ugly arial. paris would have been better had its buildings not look so brown and dull from the outside. and painted buildings are the worst for rainy cities like paris or london. thats why bricks just look better. museums in london are free, london has about 250 museums while paris has about 130. you only went into 1. thats really biased of u. it should be noted that 4 out of the top 10 most visited art galleries in the world are in london. and only 1 is in paris.. paris only has 1 unesco world heritage site, london has 4. you didnt really visit any of them. standing below big ben does not mean u really toured the parliament building. you didnt visit kew botanical garden, u didnt enter the university of greenwich either.
    also you have to understand that what makes london attractive is its firm mix of ancient and modern architecture. and both are finer than parisians. paris is all ancient for majority and a modern in la defense. to be honest, you easily get fed up with looking at similar houses for 2 days in a go. and they are all brown and use exactly the same architectural style. you didnt visit kensington or regent street to see londons neoclassical styles. and picadilly circus is londons times square. no doubt. the idea is that it is londons billboard section, you never took the time to see that wonderful sculpture in that square. it is simple but very artistic. also while london does not take pride in tall buildings, it takes pride in classical architectures and its lime stone is ash in color and brighter (unlike brown in paris, save sacre ceour). that is why picadilly mounts its billboards on those architectures. and it also joins a lot of nice street like regent and oxford street. on a sunny day, its really lovely there.
    also to say that st.pauls cathedral does not look all that great is very myopic. the interior is really stunning. I went to that of notre dame, and not only is it small, it doesnt have much going for it. it hardly compares to west minster abbey not to talk of st. pauls. I would compare it to westminster cathedral at best. in london, you pay to tour churches but museums are free. in paris churches are free but you pay to enter the museums. so its which do u prefer.
    and you took a night cruise at the river sien and didnt for thames. so no real night view of london. I could go on, but I expected you to be a bit less biased and try to get both cities on their good days. neither london or paris is desirable when its rainy and foggy. and both witness almost similar hours of sunshine annually.

  • seems you dislike london and like paris. I feel the exact opposite. I find paris brown and overrated. and not a very iconic city. londons red buses, red phone boot and red postal reciever just paints a more iconic picture.

  • Since my visit to England in 1985, the tour buses still make you hastly view thier country…nothing changed so far. Great to see the countries in your eyes! Bravo!
