Im a northerner who lives in London and i find it really friendly.....
Well said sir. London and it's people always get a bashing. You get unfriendly sorts wherever you go. Maybe some folk are intimidated by London and it's colourful cultures.
I don't live in London but once did for a few years.
I'm now in the 'cultural heartland' that is Westcliff On Sea, Essex. 40 mins on the train from London, 12 mins walk from the seafront and a lovely big park just around the corner. Pace of life is much better and what with being a family man I'm not too arsed by the lack of nightlife these days but there's a good scene if you look beyond the usual "Essex facade".
The downside of living here is the usual Essex brigade messing up the place. Wandering along the seafront on a sunny day can bring a little bit of sick into ones mouth I must say. Oh the sights, the horror the horror....
