12 reasons not to consider London a terrible place

Sometimes London can be disappointing, but in general it is not such a bad place.

1. Most importantly: in London there is any (!) food. Being a huge multicultural city, London includes literally all the cuisines of the world.

2. Availability of public transport. Yes, sometimes you can get into such a crowding that you become claustrophobic. Sometimes your face may meet someone's armpit, if your height is less than 5 feet. But it is very easy to get to any part of the city.

3. Very noisy. No one stops, and sometimes the streets are crazy. But hey! Movement is life.

4. A lot of free entertainment. London has a reputation of an expensive city, but there are a lot of free entertainment. Galleries Tate Britain and Tate Modern do not require admission fees. The British Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum are also absolutely free. Who said that the culture should be paid for?

5. A lot of bars. Would you like a beer? Or prefer an exquisite cocktail? In London, there are a lot of pubs and bars for rest after work.

6. Unusual and fascinating travel. In London there are bicycles Santander, which you can rent for only ?2. And your Oyster card will help you get to the Thames Clippers and the Emirates Air Line cable cars to make the best shots for Instagram.

7. A huge number of places for shopping. The need to buy many things and more will be fully satisfied. You can judge: Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Westfield and Harrods shopping centers are meant for spending all the money.

8. Stunning architecture. We do not pay attention to it, because we always hurry. But there are Shard, Gherkin and other beautiful buildings, for example Liberty. And many hidden, secret amazing places as well.

9. In London, you can spend the best summer (no jokes). In the hottest months, London public transport can be overloaded and full of sweating passengers, but the city really comes to life in the summer. Daytime festivals, open markets and parks are a good way of spending time.

10. You can always find what to do on Sunday. Are you sad on Sunday? You will definitely find something to do at one of London's markets. Broadway Market and Columbia Road flower market (as well as other less known ones) will help to fill time with walks, street food and bargains.

11. Great music. Has it ever happened that a music singer forgot to put London on his tour list? Never! London and music always go side by side. In places like Brixton Academy, O2 and Roundhouse, concerts are regularly held so that we can enjoy the music.

12. It is very simple to go somewhere on a trip . If you are still a little tired of London, flights to almost anywhere in the world are at your service. The airports will take you to the sunny beaches, and St. Pancras will help you organize a trip around Europe.
