Me too. While it's not a bad city I think it is a bit overrated. Not on the same level as Paris or Moscow or Rio for example

Oh that's fine with me. I have visited London a few times and will definitely travel again if there is a need.

However, I would perhaps not put London as my favorite European city. Way, way too much crowded for my liking.

For me, London was just like DC, except with much better architecture. It didn't feel "European", at all. I enjoyed it, and would certainly visit again; but never got the "European" vibe.
