    London is not the capital of Great Britain!
    Haha agree with the other comments it's not British English it's just English and the alternatives made me laugh, especially the pronunciation of Harrods.

    There is absolutely no need to tip anyone. Unlike the US, waiters, bar workers, etc. don’t expect you to tip them – in fact the majority of workers will have the impression that tips should only be given for exceptional service. It might feel odd as an American or otherwise to not give tips, but trust me as a Londoner, we do not expect a tip 🙂

    Do people really tip 12.5% if the service is normal? I'm from the UK (not England) and we only tip if the service is good

    For central London:

    1) There are some affordable (below GBP9 per meal with drinks; proper ones, not sandwiches) cafes/restaurants in central London, one can search for these places on TripAdvisor. p.s. Brits obsession with sandwiches and treating it like a proper 'meal' displeases a lot of tourists who look for actual filling meals.

    2) Some hotels or B&B might allow guests to use their microwave. Ask them and if they do, you can get packaged microwavable food from groceries and heat them up, saves you from eating out or miserable sandwiches.

    3) If you stay longer than a week, get the weekly/monthly Tube pass, that's a lot cheaper than pay-as-you-go Oyster.

    4) Avoid trains whenever possible, its price is exorbitant and one of the most expensive in the world if you're not senior citizen or at/below 25. Travel to other cities/towns by buses especially via the National Express, far cheaper and book online.

    Don't catch the Heathrow or Gatwick Express services. Much better to use the Heathrow Connect service or any train heading North from Gatwick into London – way cheaper but a little slower.

    A £1 as a tip? Come on?! Better not give cos a pound is an insult! Brits don’t expect a tip unlike Americans, if your really feel you need to then at least a fiver is not so insulting otherwise no

    Arriving at Gatwick Airport and want to take the train to London? BEWARE THE TOURIST RIP-OFF THAT IS THE GATWICK EXPRESS. Save your money. The savvy traveller gets an OYSTER card from the ticket office at Gatwick station and uses SOUTHERN services. Look for the green and white trains! UK based travellers can use CONTACTLESS payment cards or phones with Android/Apple pay. There are SIX trains an hour during the day and it takes the same 30 minutes, nicer seats and free Wi-Fi too. It costs (2019 prices) £8.30 off-peak and £15.10 peak time. Peak time is MONDAY-FRIDAY 06.30-09.30 and 16.00-19.00 all other times are off-peak. However, in the Gatwick to London direction, as long as your journey ends in ZONE 1(central London) peak fares are only charges in the morning 06.30-09.30.GATWICK EXPRESS is £19.80 at ALL TIMES… PLEASE DON'T GET RIPPED OFF. You can use your OYSTER card to continue your journey on London underground, London buses or any other national rail station in greater London. If you're staying in London you'll need an OYSTER card to get around on public transport so get one at Gatwick and start saving straight away.REMEMBER. THE GATWICK EXPRESS IS A RIP-OFF OF UNWARY TRAVELLERS AND VISITORS. To find out what fares you will pay search 'TfL Single fare finder' you can also download the OYSTER area map called 'London's rail and tube services'

    Using the term “loo” for a toilet now is a bit old fashioned. If you want to sound like a local ask for the khasi (pronounced Kazi)

    As far as riding the tube goes don't bother paying for an oyster card if you have Apple Pay (I assume Android Pay works as well) or a contactless card (it has a wifi looking symbol if it's contactless)

    UK currency. £5 note is a fiver (or if you meet a real cockney which you won't, a fiver is also called a Deep sea Diver). A £10 note is tenner. A £20 note is a score. A £50 note is a bullseye. And a £1000 in notes is a grand. A 'Pony is £25 quid. £100 quid is a 'ton' and £500 quid is a 'monkey'. If an ice cream van in Central London try's to charge you more than 2 quid for a can of Coke, tell em to 'sod off'. If they try to charge you 3 quid for a cone, tell em to 'pi## off'. Try not to use £50 notes as you will be viewed with suspicion as 'nifty's' is the curency of the black market and drug dealers! Youre welcome. On a serious note. Come and enjoy my city. But be warned, bring plenty of dosh!

    I’m in London for sightseeing on my own and for the past two days I encountered two incidents consecutively whereby a group of young cyclists were shouting at me “fxxking (Asian)” from afar approaching me. Maybe they think I have blocked their way. The locations are at guard memorial and Greenwich college way. Sad to see some young british are being so racist and violent nowadays !

    Re the weather. Actually it rains more in the London area than pretty much everywhere in the north of England.

    No London City Airport is the closest to the centre of London (the clue as they say is in the title), not Heathrow.

    Pickpockets are a real problem in London, especially on the tube. Make use of the River Bus (run by London Transport). It goes past most major sights all the way to Greenwich. Safer, less crowded and more scenic plus fresh air.

    Yes "Subway" is also a Sandwich shop in the UK. Don't get confused – if you see a green front, with yellow letters saying "Subway" – you are NOT going to be able to buy travel tickets here.

    The entrance to British museum is free because none of the exhibits belong to England. Everything is stolen.

    Is the Citymapper app offline app or do you have to have data or wifi. Your video is very good. I’m going to London for just ten hours on a layover to another country and I’m on my own this time so I am directly heading to the British museum for a few hours. I arrive at 7 am and leave 10 hours later. Thank you for your video

    Museums are free but ironically, you were standing outside The London Transport Museum in Covent Garden which charges around £17/18 to enter. It's not that good either!

    Love how your vids are always so useful and practical. Love that you added ‘use your feet’, we can find hidden gems when we walk everywhere. Cheers from Australia.

    One downside to the market street food is that they give you too much and up charge you a bit more, therefore it is better to buy one and share among two to three so you can eat more variety of stuffs along the way

    Technically the Heathrow Express only goes in Paddington Station which means you must spend more on the Tube just take the Tube on the Piccadilly line to directly goes in the city.

    June July and August might be too hot for some people and of course those months are the hight of tourist season so hotels will be more expensive.
