Don’t worry. Taking your own snacks is not illegal in England. You don’t need to smuggle it in haha
Kyde and Eric (3 days ago)
Haha, it's not illegal in The States either, it's just something that might get you kicked out of the theater. -E

London is approx. 35 miles across. You seemed to be obsessed by the Gherkin. Well, it might interest you to know that the building where you were sitting is called "The Walkie-Talkie", and the nearby triangular building with the flat side is called "The Cheesegrater"

The London tourist thing, the Yeomans and Soldiers etc. So fake and staged but they got it perfected, down to a fine art and it brings people in so fair play to them.

Yeah don't get me wrong they know the history of the place and well, everything haha. That's good training and it's a good thing to find these days in tourist spots.

Ha ha that's what I said about the M&M store! Why? Also that chocolate smells burnt as all hell. Btw that church with the ladder on was actually St Martin's in Fields... think I saw a commenter claiming it was St James Piccadilly? Also it's pretty sad to see some people on here think it's just propaganda that many, many of the people trying to get to Europe are indeed refugees. ...but anyway youtube comments aren't a great place for nuance or debate so let's just shelve that one with... I and many others strongly disagree.

So, the Mayor is responsible for (amongst other things) the public toilets not being properly maintained, and that there's junk in a tree masquerading as art.. London really deserves a better Mayor.

That's a quick reply Eric, thanks, love your videos ...just watching you two tackle the eel pie and spotted dick (Freckled Richard in polite company!) Great videos ...I see my own country with fresh eyes.
Breece Pancake (29 days ago)
Yep, on behalf of the British population I would like to apologise for the parlous state of many (and actually they're few and far between) of the public toilets. They are a national disgrace. I cannot understand why the authorities don't understand this. Clean up the litter and clean up the toilets. I am British by the way.
Steven Deaville (2 days ago)
Puffinrust, you hit the nail on the head. I've worked in places with African immigrants and seen the exact same thing, not to mention that some of these people have never used toilet paper, they just use their hand and then wipe that on the wall.
Puffinrust (26 days ago)
Take into account that there is an increasing amount of people who have no intention of ever sitting on a toilet seat ( their culture innit!!) so the incidence of broken loo seats ( they stand on em) and woeful aiming is here to stay. Vibrant and enriching i think they call it.
Kyde and Eric (29 days ago)
Haha, the litter wasn't so bad, but the toilet game could use some work. -E

Second video I've watched and I absolutely love your style, its really refreshing. Also thank you for introducing me to my own city. I live on the outskirts of London, I have worked in the city, I go there often and I know it very well and yet you have shown it to me in a way that I have never seen it. You have made my own city even more wonderful to me. I think that is a pretty amazing thing to do. Thank you so much

The thing about the Loos (public toilets) always carry a pack of antiseptic wipes with you to wipe down the seats. My advice is only use public toilets if it’s absolutely necessary and you’re desperate. Not all places are that bad but not everyone’s idea of clean is like your own.

Hi you two, I just wanted to share how much I am enjoying your channel. I am an Englishman living in Vietnam and really respect your style of getting under the skin of the UK, (I have only watched your UK clips so far). There are so many other videos of people looking at ‘Big Ben’ etc, but you guys go deeper and I really like that. I love that you have ventured north (I am a northerner) and are showing the world some of the beauty of the rest of England. It also helps that you have such fun and inquisitive approaches to your filming and come across as very likable and humble individuals. Great work peeps.

Sorry for my rambling lol. You mention a Roman walls that aren't there any more, there's a bit at London wall near Bank, you were close, there's also some Roman wall left over are tower hill you prob saw it. But anyway you probably came across places called Moorgate, Bishopsgate, Aldgate etc, apparently they were where there were big gates /entrances in the Roman wall that surrounded London ;)

Little interesting thing, In the Tower of London, as you were walking down the old stone spiral staircase, you notice the all wind anti-clockwise down like the one there. Giving your right hand space to swing a sword, the enemy coming up the stairs attacking you will have a hard time swinging his sword at you ; )

Love the way Eric pronounces Thames ... here's a wiki ... The pronunciation of 'Thames' comes from the word's original spelling, which had pre-Celtic roots. Simply put, the river's name has always been pronounced 'tems', with a simple 't' sound. The modern spelling of the word Thames illustrates an interesting phenomenon in the history of the English language.

The Church of England has joined in with the lie about Refugees. This clothing did not come from Refugees, it came from Migrants. The British Government along with the EU are spreading lies that these people deserve Refugee Status when in fact they are Migrants and are just to be used as the Cheap Labour of Europe to bring wages down to a shockingly low level where a British Person can no longer plan for the future . No more marriage, no more owning a house, just Total Servitude.

I'm from London and I live in Tokyo. I've always thought that the two cities are very similar- they are huge, old and new architecture, modern and ancient, city parks, refs, old areas, new areas, markets, customs, lots of small villages clumped together, tiny churches/ temples, canals, a LOT of events and concerts each day some of them free, a lot of artistic exhibitions and music played live, and small areas you don't know about til you're walking by on the street.the two cities are limitless and endlessly big.

Is that dragon always there in the Tower of London? I swear I didn't see that. I love the gold in the belly. :) I felt really safe in London. I expected it to feel a little sketchy but I felt perfectly safe everywhere we went. That may be because we generally stuck to the tourist areas. The public toilets are bad and you have to pay to get in. So what are they doing with that money? That pong game is fantastic! Wow!

Never take your own snacks into a cinema if you want your movie theatre to survive, the cinema gets 0 from ticket sales, all money goes to distributer, the ONLY way your cinema makes any money is from the snacks and drinks it sells

Really great interpretation of our Capital City guys. Always good to see and hear someone else's perception of who we are. London isn't England and certainly not the UK but its a great place to understand our history and what makes us the rather odd people we are and makes more sense of the rest of the country Oh and its pronounced the River 'Tems' . yes I know - our language can be rather odd as well as us.

Guys the Gherkin is called St Mary’s Axe and the building you were in is nicknamed the walkie talkie

The yeoman of the guard havevto have been in the armed forces for at least 22 years. Be of good character and be discharged from the forces with an exemplary record . The royal family don't live at either Buckingham palace or the tower and palace of London . The queen lives at Windsor castle ( which she doesn't own ) and sandringham house which she does . Prince Charles lives at Clarence House and the other senior royals have apartments at Kensington palace ( where Diana lived ) . The river which is now very clean is pronounced " Tems"

Just adding some extra history geek to your fine film. The Monument is the world’s tallest free standing column; it is 202 feet high and located 202 feet from where the Great Fire started in Pudding Lane. Greater London isn’t technically a city, only The City of London (AKA The City) and Westminster are cities by the British definition of a city.

The Gherkin is 30 St Mary Axe. While you were there you should have visited the church of St Andrew Undershaft.    The City of London is usually just referred to as 'the square mile'.   If you like markets you should try Walthamstow Market, which is the longest street market in Europe. While there go into Manzie's which is a pie and mash shop, also selling jellied eels.

For a Star Wars snack you should have chewed baccy! As well as public executions the public was charged to look at 'the loonies' in mental hospitals like 'Bedlam'. In Conwy in North Wales they still had some red telephone boxes but they were converted into cash machines. The media likes to keep people scared/outraged with stories of violence and attacks but you just need to keep a sensible head on your shoulders. That said there are always 'dodgy' areas to avoid. Eris looks like Joe Melia, check-out 'The Ballad of Alan a' Dale' from 'Not Only but Also'.

Have a little walking tour on your next visit. Very close to the Tower of London, which you visited, there are parts of the old London walls. Some are built into the immediately surrounding architecture. Search on Google for London Wall. That will give you a good start.

The 'City of London' is an artificial border. It is not normally inhabited by the general public. Not a massive area by scale to the whole of London, but it is the locals who know, roughly, where it starts and ends. It's not like walking into the wrong part of Queens or Brooklyn, it's more like you go there for business, not for tourism. Go on a Sunday and be totally disappointed!
quarkwrok (1 month ago)
It's roughly a square mile (nickname is 'the square mile, also known as the City) and is the area within the old Roman city walls plus some extra bits (I think it was abandoned for a few hundred years after the Romans left). The names of the old city gates appear in some street and area names - Aldgate, Bishopsgate, Ludgate, Moorgate etc - an some other wall features have become street/area names (Houndsditch, Barbican). Originally almost all the Londoners lived within it but after the Great Fire many built homes outside.

The great fire of London started in a bake-house on Pudding Lane in the city, close to where the monument now stands. The monument was built in commemoration. I have walked up the steps to the external gallery near the top. It is a fairly narrow spiral staircase. Easy going up on the outside, wide part of the stair, kinda frightening coming back down on the inside, narrow part of the stairs! The great fire was attributed to have been the major cause of the destruction of the great plague of London which preceeded the fire. The plague was largely caused by London's fame as an international port, bringing with it plague infested vermin which spread to London's population.
peebee143 (3 months ago)
You have spoken several times about Tower Bridge. Did you find out that it is actually built of a steel skeleton, clad in stone, and was built in the late nineteenth century. Nowhere near as old as many believe it to be. Early photographs of its construction exist!

I used to be able to look out from my bedroom window from my home in North London, across the Thames valley. I could see St. Paul's Cathedral, the Post Office Tower (or whatever it is called these days) and various other land marks. Little was taller than 100 feet tall back then.
Kyde and Eric (3 months ago)
Wow, amazing. -E
peebee143 (3 months ago)
Probably clear by now that I am dissecting your video, and commenting as I go. London is a mass-association of villages. Its centre runs roughly East-West along the Thames valley. It is divided into several groups. (Theatreland, the City, the financial City and such.) It covers a truly massive area when taken in as a whole. It has one of the best (possibly the best) integrated transport system of any city, anywhere in the world.

Don't know about buses but London's rail system is number 2 in the world behind Tokyo (i'm a train nut!) so you got to experience the 2 biggest.

London's transport system is amazing considering it's age, but we live in Tokyo so we are a hard sell on how good transportation can be. I'll give you that London's buses are amazing though! -E

The people executed were considered to be enemies of the state, and therefore, enemies of the British people. It helped to set an example of what would be expected for those who would betray the British realm.
