In pretty much any ranking I have seen London is usually in the top 3, top 2 or top 1 or shares top 1 (most often with NYC). What DavePa said isn't exactly incorrect.

Hey y'all as the OP of this thread I shoulda told you why I picked Vancouver and London town.It's because they're my two favorite international citiesAs a Texican who is also an Anglophile it's only fitting that I would be interested to compare my two favorite world cities to my hometown.I'm liking a lot of these posts.As for my pick I gotta go with the Tone because we got Texas BBQ and Big Red soda pretty much anywhere you go.So hell yeah!
Jealous London and Vancouver,BC?You prolly are.
PS:If this turns into a NYC vs London thread so help me I'll....

For weather... San Antonio is the best
For culture and location... London wins
For nature and livability... Vancouver wins
For economy... San Antonio wins
For crime... Vancouver wins

It depends on what people want in a city I guess. For me overall, I think where I live now wins as it has the best overall package.

I'm in Texas, been to Europe and visited Vancouver B.C. several times. If I got the money, its the not the capital of the British Commonwealth nor San Antonio (Happy 300th Birthday!) but Beautiful British Columbia is the winner.

Cute ..... both NYC and London share aspects of this top spot. Some years you read one leads.... then the next year it's the other.

Because NYC wasn't a topic city. Why did I need to mention it? New Yorkers have no need to feel they still can lead and recognize London is its sister-city as are our two forever linked Nations.

IMO London does stand out on so many levels. I wouldn't want to live there full time, but that city has SO much.

If I have a lot of money and am in a career with international prestige and mobility paying 200k and above, London no question.

If I'm a working professional with a family and a household income of at least 100k, Vancouver.

I haven't been to San Antonio, but you can probably pick up a place to live for 200 grand which is absolute peanuts compared to the above, so if I am neither of the above in economic conditions I'd consider San Antonio.

The comparison is across three very different economic requirements to thrive (i.e., comfortably afford a place, a car, and entertainment/dining) and should be the primary consideration...
