"typical english yob types"???? So you think the dramatisations you see on the telly are "typical" do you? You think the "yobs" you see on the news, and on holiday are indicative of an entire nation's typical behaviour?

What with you not liking big noisy cities as well, I'd day you're not going to be a match made in heaven. I'd give it a miss if I were you.

I am thinking of going over for a long weekend some time. Her self was there at the start of the year and said i would like Covent Garden area but where else is worth the going/staying. Please note i have little to no intrest in seeing the sights Tower of london, Buck palace or houses of parlament.

its a dump.. dont bother going.

i dunno where you get this "english yob" idea about london, because there arent any english in london.

well, there's very few of them. they all live in essex , milton keynes and the other towns surrounding london.

you'd be lucky to hear a cockney accent nowadays. i heard my first one the other day , after about 3 months of working in london...

Going to London for a weekend in a few weeks so just weighing up the prices of flights etc. Gatwick with Ryanair is working out cheapest but the Gatwick Express seems to have doubled in price lately, so it costs nearly as much as the flight now. Stansted is around the same when you figure in the price of the train so I reckon I'll go Heathrow... can anyone tell me how much does the tube cost these days for a return Heathrow to city centre? If I'm there for the weekend is it worth getting an oyster card?

How much is the heathrow express -v- the tube? I can tolerate the tube journey if it'll save me the price of a few G&Ts to numb the discomfort.
