London - City that never sleeps

  4 votes

I have mixed feeling about London, I love it and I hate it. I love the history, the pace at which the city moves and the people. On the other hand I found London to be very much survival of the fittest and can be a very lonely place.

Favourite spots:
My favourite spot in London where I spent a lot of my time was in Covent Garden. I loved the atmosphere in Covent Garden, it was always busy with people shopping and was alive with street performers. In the centre of Covent Garden Markets there is a café that makes, I think, the best waffles.

What's really great:
Hearing the chime of Big Ben in the morning as I went in to work.

Sights:
London's Soho area is also worth a visit. I got lost there one afternoon which was probably not a very good idea but I found some quaint little shops and restaurants.

Hangouts:
Gordons Wine Bar in Villiers Street near Charing Cross station does not look like much from the outside. The bar is located underground in a smugglers dungeon. It does get really busy on Friday nights but not many tourists know about it. It is worth a visit.
