The first time you come to London you'd expect a lot of rain and depressing colours especially if it is November. But to my surprise, I learned that it rained more freuquently in my country than in London. Most of the days were filled with soft touches of sunlight which makes this city feel like a truly beautiful place to live in.
The architecture is pretty unique from my point of view.
I have seen this type a lot around United Kingdom so it is not necessarily London. It creates a sense of walking through history(which in a way or another, you do). So again, instead of walking in a constant depressing rainy mood you'll see colorful skies and wonderful views all around. The following image is a common view of the streets in London.
The buildings are pretty diverse. Close to the city center you will see tall and complex buildings but not skyscrappers. Those are in another part of the city and will seem like a depiction of the modern world. I will only show the first type of buildings I wrote about.
Also, british people love trees and green views. As a cosnequence, there are lots of parks and green areas. As a matter of fact, their parks, also known as squares are filled with birds and squirrels. Here are some photographs from parks and student campuses that show how beautiful these spots can be.
This is how a very little part of London looks through the eyes of a newcomer. It is incredible to think that this city wouldn't have been the same without the Great Fire of London from 1666 as it was rebuilt from its foundation. In our days, London is a great city to live in. And even if it is really expensive, the cost of living can be dramatically reduced if you plan in advance. The things you gain will compensate a lot. It is with no doubt one of the most vibrant cities when it comes to events and opportunities of any kind.
And because you were probably expecting this, here is a photo of a street artist.
