5. The tube! We like to whine about it all the time, but it works just fine.

6. You’re never far from green. London has more park space than any other major city on earth. Park as ‘park’, not parking space. Don’t start!

7. Other cities would kill to have a haven as beautiful as Dulwich village in the centre of London city.

10. Seeing people do the ‘walk of shame’ on your way to work. (Or doing it b4 work)

11. You actually can live in London for years and years and still find something different each day. There is simply so much going on everywhere that it is impossible to know it all, and this about London is what makes it truly mysteriously charming to me. You will never discover it all or know it all; The excitement never ends in the capital, and until I die, I will always be on the hunt for the next amazing discovery here.

Better safe Than sorry

12. And contrary to popular belief – they do talk to people, they are friendly, and they will welcome you with open arms.

14. The Underground Where would we be without the Underground? A bus stop, that’s where. And nobody wants that if not late at night.
