No typical UK cities do not look like France with all those old buildings.

Are you being serious? Try going to a German city like Cologne or Dortmund - lots of ugly modern buildings.

Likewise, go to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester, Liverpool; cities with lots of old buildings and beautiful streets.

In owen's defense, a lot of those London photos aren't exactly typical views. Some of the buildings look a bit more ornamented than what I remember. But it sounds like his logic is big old city = Europe.

London has a mismatch of buildings and isn't dominated by one style, unlike central Paris. But his views are completely absurd.

Edinburgh doesn't look like Paris.

But Edinburgh is one of Europe's most beautiful and well-preserved cities, with beautiful historic architecture aplenty and almost no tall buildings whatsoever.. does this mean Edinburgh is not British? FFS, think before you post. Europe is more than just France - it includes Germany, Finland, the Netherlands and Belgium, and they all have butt-ugly cities that were either bombed to bits or were ruined by post-war planners. What you are saying makes 0% sense.

I advise you to take a trip there. People just assume it's ugly because it's northern without actually visiting. It's certainly more grand and impressive than most cities.

I love that pic of the CIDP in London. I wish they would plant them all over the city. I know it pisses off the cold lovers though. London can support that kind of tree, so I think they should plant them all over and make it look more tropical.
