• Reasons to visit London at least once in a lifetime!?
  • The DLR in London is that a monorail I have heard it's driveless?

    Hi there!! I'm moving to London in the next few months and would like some advice on where to live for young professionals!! I have been to London many times and I know the South West very well, in particular Parsons Green, Fulham, Wimbledon. I would like somewhere like this - a semi-busy quaint and leafy setting that has nice bars, restaurants, places for coffee/brunch but definitely more the upmarket end. But while still has a relaxed feel to it. Somewhere ideally like Parsons Green or Wimbledon as mentioned above. Can other people advice me of places possibly in North, West and East London that would be of a similar price and location and with similar vibes and feels? Ideally I would like either Zone 2 or Zone 3. I don't know these areas as well but I'm sure there are suburbs there that would suit my preferences. Thank you in advance!! :)

  • What happened to all the prostitutes in London Soho?

    Best answer: You will need a decent raincoat and umbrella. You will need a hat, scarf and gloves. It may be really cold with frosts or just grey, wet and or misty. London seldom gets as cold as its outlying areas, so if you will be in town the whole time, you will be very unlucky to see snow. Your feet and ankles will need socks or stockings and shoes that can withstand wet weather for when you are out on foot, though lighter fashion shoes are do-able for evening events if you wish.

    Best answer: They usually gain weight while on The Force after their 1 year probationary periods.

    Best answer: They usually gain weight while on The Force after their 1 year probationary periods. From there they can claim medical cause for being fat and go to Fat Camps in order to prolong employment. Even if it's non-medical obesity the medical claim will need to be investigated by a doctor and assessed by an LE panel and negotiated with the Police Union.

    It's also possible to be fat and pass the low police department fitness standards. I think they require like 15 push-ups in a minute.

  • Is it okay to use an American pronunciation while travelling to London?

    Best answer: Of course it's okay. England is a multicultural country, you see people of all countries and accents around here. Specially around London! Stop overthinking, it's unnecessary. No one will judge you for being from somewhere else or having an American accent. I love american accents btw!

  • Where can I say I was born?

    I was born in Westminster in London. Westminster is officially recognised as a city within the city of London. So technically was I born in Westminster or London? Or could I use both?
