Name: Hayley
Age: Seventeen
Location: Just outside Croydon, on the very edge of Greater London
Have you been to London?: Well, I live there. But I'll take that to mean Central London. Yes, also.
If so, when?: How often depends on the weather/money situation. In the summer, I try and go every weekend, or in thw middle of the week.
What was your favorite thing about it?: Ah, lots. I'm London Underground obsessed. I love all the cliched things, the 'vibe' and atmosphere. It's urban, but go to the big parks, and you're almost not in the city anymore. It's so diverse (cliche again); just a few minutes walk and you're in a totally different area with a different feel to it. There's always something to do, even if the only money you have is for a travelcard. One more cliche: Most of all, I love the people.
Anything else?: I decided to join this fledgling community as I do love London, but a semi-insider's view might give a different view.
Also, I don't know if you can get this outside of the UK, but if you have a PS2, you should hunt down 'The Getaway'. It's a gang rivalry, violent kinda game, based on different London gangs. But the twist is that the streets are geographically accurate. Even pretty small streets are there. My Dad used it to find somewhere to park once... It's ace :D

Have you been to London?: Nope but my dad has been several times. Lucky him.
If so, when?:
What was your favorite thing about it?: Hmm.. when he came home with the tea and a doll in the national costume.
Anything else?: I would love to go. I love the history of London and of England period. Wish I could have been with my dad when Phantom of the Opera opened, and when he saw Starlight Express with John Partridge as Electra in 1992. Lucky him.
