Never ever go into a McDonald’s loo they are like war zones. In London it’s worse. Restaurant and cafe loos are usually ok.

Love this video ... it's kind of a tourist view of my journey to work ... and covers some of the reasons why I love the feeling of being in London. I'd get off the train at Fenchurch Street station, walk past the Sky Garden building, cut through past The Monument, across London Bridge, through Borough Market and down to Southwark ... a few minutes from the Tate Gallery and the London Eye. Going for drinks after work at Christmas time and just pausing while crossing back across London Bridge to take in the lit up view of the sites blending the modern world with hundreds of years of history was always pretty inspirational.

I like you guys, so optimistic. Americans need to get out more so that Europeans understand them more and you us. P.S. like your red gnome hat more than the blue one !,

Great video. I normally go to the nearest Marks & Spencer and use their toilets. Some public toilets (including those at railway stations) charge 20p so always carry a few of these coins with you.

Well, "The City (of London") really is not the oldest part of The UK actually, but *of London.* Basically, it's 'the financial district', but it *is* governed somewhat 'differently' than all the rest of London. Oh, but...uh, well, actually there *are* 'some' rather dodgy areas in London...just, mostly a bit further-a-field out from the centre than where you guys were! Am *so* glad you're enjoying... and, appear to be quite impressed by...it, though ({: D !! Well, alright...so you don't really care much for our public toilets, then; not that i can blame you: they can be pretty horrid, i suppose...but, really, not *all* of 'em! And it's probably all the tourists, there in those "touristy" areas, making the WCs so dreadful ({; D ...!! Oh, and, yes...that last installation, in the church [ ...the name of which i cannot think of, at the moment ({: \ ], with all of the refugees' discarded clothes; that really was amazing, quite effective, and very well done! <3 / <3

An interesting fact about The White Tower, which gives the entire castle its name, was built by William the Conqueror in 1078 whereas Construction of Durham Castle (which is approximately 69 miles South of the present Scottish border) began in 1072 under the orders of William the Conqueror, six years after the Norman Conquest of England, and soon after the Normans first came to the North. William the Conquerer tried to invade Scotland soon after 1066 but was defeated by the Scottish tribes.So he built a castle at Durham so that the Scots (if they tried to invade Northern England) would have the Normans on their backs. This happened in the early 12th Century as the Scots were unsuccessful at Durham castle and were turned back by the Normans. I like your videos .Thanks.

Love it; i will use my woman as a pack mule, but with 'Poor Bens', i have a thing for Yorkshire liquorice, yummy! The part about the refugees is that British people would liked to be asked, not told to take migrants; that's why we had Brexit, and because we have more people here then Canada, Australia , New Zealand combined and you can easily fit the U.K in California.

‘More goat, less guilt.’ Doesn’t that just mean that goats milk has no lactose In in it? I was lactose intolerant until I was five years old. So I could only have goats milk products.

Christopher Wren and Robert Hooke built the monument to double-up as a scientific instrument. It has a central shaft meant for use as a zenith telescope and for use in gravity and pendulum experiments that connects to an underground laboratory for observers to work (accessible through a hatch in the floor of the present-day ticket booth). Vibrations from heavy traffic on Fish Street Hill rendered the experimental conditions unsuitable. At the top of the monument, a hinged lid in the urn covers the opening to the shaft.The steps in the shaft of the tower are all six inches high, allowing them to be used for barometric pressure studies. Another monument, the Golden Boy of Pye Corner, marks the point near Smithfield where the fire was stopped.

Welcome to London, glad you enjoyed it. I've lived in most parts of it over the years, from slummy NW10 to very posh E1 (docklands) and everywhere in between. And I've not seen all of it there is to see. Most of it, but not all of it.

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.

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.
Puffinrust (2 months 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.

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!

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.

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'.
