My very first trip to London was for business purposes, and it had a huge impact on me as I was expecting to find the opposite of what London is really like. A big, vibrant city that is surprisingly surrounded in a calm and relaxed mood, with nice people that are always polite and willing to help, residents and visitors alike. I would say that the London etiquette is freedom itself! Fashionable, sporty or just casual, everything works here, even if you go to a business meeting or just visiting the city. On any given day, travelling through London, you will come across thousands of people from different cultures and backgrounds and all this pictures the city’s routine.
Seen through the tourist’s eyes, London offers a big variety of attractions, activities, cultural places, shopping and so much more. The funny part is that somehow, you feel very familiar with the most iconic places in London. You have seen them so often in your English books at school, or at TV, that when you meet the reality, it’s like a having a flashback - “I’ve been here, I know this” :) The London Underground, or simply the Tube, is one of the best railway transportation that I’ve ever experienced. It feels safe, very well organised, not busy even if almost everybody in London uses it and of course, with the latest surveillance system. Not to mention that the London Tube is the oldest section of underground railway in the world, which opened in 1863, so you are literally travelling through history.
