  • Fish – “I love the square mile part of London, but I can't help imagining what it would be like if it wasn't bombed during the blitz. There is some really great streets and old buildings, but then you turn the corner and come across some new galss fronted monstrosties. The city is a mixture of old London and the new. And most of the new buildings just seem to have been thrown up as quickly as possible for the cheapest possible price. Brick fronts with no character. Square boxes with no shape. There are, of course, plenty of exceptions. I can't help but love new buildings like lloyds and the gherkin, but these are few and far between. We need more of them, please boris, and less of the boring ones!”
  • josh – “Sure there are some awful new buildings, but you can say that about any city. But the city of London is packed full of old classic buildings. St pauls, the tower of London, tower bridge.. There is plenty of good stuff around if you look for it. You just have to avoid the bits where workers like holborn because that is just boring offices. Stick to the area around fleet street and the tower of London and there is plenty of good stuff to enjoy”

Review London Underground I am standing on the platform waiting for the train to come. Everyone is looking into the dingy tunnel for the first sign of the bright lights on the concrete wall. When it finally comes it…
