I think generally the weather in London is just worse, which makes it look grittier.

Paris is far to be sourounded by ghetto, most of suburbs are middle class because the suburbs represent 80% of Paris Population.
The inner city is far to be a white wealthy place exepted in the 7th and 16th arrondissement
Infact the suburbs have a lower poverty rate than inner Paris.

Most people don't know anything about Paris ghettoes (especially when they think that Paris is surounded by ghetto and saying suburban when these place are denser and more urban than most inner cities).

Most tourists visit only a smal part of central Paris where the average parisian never go (7eme arrondissement, 16th arrondissment Louvre...)
The only places were toursit go and you can see Parisian are the subway, Les Halles and the Champs Elysees. (it weird in these place how the toursits are astonished by Paris ethnical diversity)
Tourists never also see the rough parts of London, that's comparable.

Crazymac I don't know what is your problem with Paris.

I agree that Paris is far to be the tourist depend and romantic white city that people imagine.
London is a very beautiful city, as pretty than Paris.

Nice picture but too touristy for me.

Nah, common misconception - Paris and London have comparably similar weather.

Total sunlight hours for Paris is 60, total for London is 48.

But, London has less average precipitation: 593mm to Paris's 619mm. And less Wet Days: 153 to Paris's 162.

Its a myth that its always raining, foggy and grey in London town

Averages for Paris -


Averages for London -
