London - Best city in the world ?
Posted 18 April 2012 - 02:22 PM
Timings wise I really appreciate how speedy it is. But I can't say I will ever enjoy the tube - mainly caused by the attidues of people on it, rather than how it is run!
on a site note, have to say how much it makes me laugh in the morning watching people who can hear the tube pulling in run down the escalator and pile in to the most crowded carriage, desperate to get on that one. Where I get on the tube, by the time you walk to the end of the platform the next one will be there!!

However I am quite a big fan of Brussels.
Ohh yes so am I. Especially with gravy and turnips.

I find speaking to alot of people from different countries that although the Met has some of its short-falls, brought to light recently with the August riots and recent bad press (although lets be honest, there are other Police forces abroad who dont even hide negative things equality related, like racial profiling etc); overall, the Met are considered if not the best, just behind the gun-totting NYPD (that being all officers armed with at-least a side-arm/pistol, but arming all officers is another argument for another day).
Just another thing to add to London's belt
I hope im not skating on the ice by saying this

They are all great cities and I would be happy to spend time in all of them. But for me London has something a little bit "more" to it. Where but London can you find pubs on major central streets that haven't changed since Dickens described them? Where but London can you literally see the history of the last 1000+ years every time you look at something?
Sure London can sometimes feel a bit creaky or overwhelmed by its size but I reckon it still holds its own with the top of the top cities.

Tokyo would have to be my favourite big city.
Edit for spellings

The comparisons with smaller, friendlier cities in the UK are interesting but useless. You have to compare London with other cities of 5-8+ million: New York, Tokyo, LA, Chicago, Paris.
the question is only 'best city in the world' - the best city doesn't necessarily have to be one of the biggest
