    is London a big, bustling city like New York City, or a big city with a small city feel, like Munich?

    Having lived in London and visited New York I can say that London is a big bustling City just like New York.

    London is still, I believe, the largest city in Europe.
    It's about the 25th largest in the world.
    And having lived there for some 20 years I can tell you that it is a sh*t hole full of surly and miserable people :lol:

    And Merchant Bankers...

    I worked in the West End a lot of the time and, one idle evening in the pub, I calculated that every breath of air in London had been breathed by over 100 people before I got to it.
    And one rule to remember is never, ever wear anything white!

    i went to London a couple of months ago, first time i had been since i was a kid... saw Icelandic singer Bjork in a pub having a drink with friends... which was nice. Got a parking ticket too, which was not so nice.

    Hertz - why nothing white??

    If you go into the West End wearing anything white it turns gray within 10 minutes.
    When I was younger I used to cycle into town from home - it took half the time of other methods of transport.
    By the time I got to the studio when I took my sunglasses off I looked like a negative panda.

    Hertz speaks the truth - even the might top gear could not get through london quicker than a bike:

    Almost... We did get a bit lost, going in circles and stuff, "haven't we already past that building?".
