Holy shit, London looks awesome. I've always had this aversion towards the city, but it was always baseless. I've only been there a handful of times, and never downtown.

Amazing and incredible pics there, flar. You outdid yourself there, you got almost all of downtown, EVERYTHING in the city centre, a perfect day, and you deserve a hand for that. I think it's better than my photo collection, and mine is pretty good. Awesome work!

I'll be doing a night tour this weekend when I'm @ the Knights game, look out for those, now that I have my tripod! It should be GOOD!

London's downtown has made a truly remarkable comeback in the last 5 years.
The best thing about downtown London is the people. All those urban streets showed lots of pedestrian traffic.

I found downtown London much the same as when I lived there from 1994-2002. They added the JLC and some residential highrises and refilled the Galleria with better things (the Library is nice) but otherwise the shops and restaurants were almost the same. I see they renovated the Brunswick Tavern, that used to be my favourite dive.

It has always been a good city to live in. I imagine they still have festivals in Victoria Park almost every weekend during the summer.

Great pics! For those of us who have never been there, they offer a wonderful glimpse of the city. A couple 500 foot towers would add really make it seem larger than 450+ thousand...

Definitely a beautiful city... when I went there last summer I had to ask myself "Why did I not know this place existed?" It's like the ideal small/medium-size city... loved it.

I've always liked downtown London and it has so much more potential.

Not too big, not too small, just right.

And by the way, there's a fantastic Chinese buffet on Wellington I think it is. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
