Description:

There's more to London than just tea and crumpets, rain, and those damned red telephone booths in which everybody inists on posing for photos. Though it has a long and rich history, London is anything but old-fashioned and proper. London is fast. It's fashion. It's culture. It's boozing. It's grime. It's elegance. And it's ridiculous amounts of fun. Enough said.

London on Wikipedia

Payin' them bills...
