Love: Shopping, London, Architecture, History, The Tube (and British Railways), the food, the beer, the traditional British Pub, the music, the television, the humour, the canals, the beautiful rolling countryside, the tiny quaint villages, the mendering rivers and old castles, the cutting edge arts scene, the modern architecture seen lately, the supermarkets, the cricket, the B-Roads, pints of milk at your doorstep, letter boxes right on your door,

hell, I love the whole atmosphere of the place.

But there are some things I hate: Heathrow (until T5), the yob culture, the nimbys, the confusing rail ticket prices, the high house prices of London and year, the yobs.

Generally though, the good seriously outweighs the bad.

I love the english accent!
Hate:england is becoming more and more anti american so i dont know if i will ever visit.
Oh god, the UK isnt Anti-American - Anti-Bush perhaps....but we can differentiate between the administration and the people. Americans are more than welcome in the UK and i very much doubt you will have any hassle at all.

:eek:kay: ;)
