London or Edinburgh

Recommended Posts

I want to take my lady away for a weekend Fri Sunday and wouldnt mind London or Edinburgh.

 

I havent been to neither so I would like to know which is the better?

 

I shall be travelling down about 6ish on Fri and I can return anytime on Sunday.

 

We enjoy walking, restaurants, beers and general attractions.

 

Or if someone can suggestion somewhere else?

 

Cheers

Both would be good on that score tbh. Doesn't the Edinburgh Festival start soon though? The place will be manic once that gets underway.

Aye, if it's not festival time then definitely Edinburgh, it's particularly gorgeous in the sunshine. At least London's got the bonus of being big enough that you can avoid the crowds if you need to. All the major tourist attractions are pretty mental at the minute though.

Ive only ever been to London when the Toon have been playing.

 

I wouldn't go just for the sake of it, too many cockneys for my liking.

 

Maybe if there is a show on you'd like to see then it may be worth a trip down, but Edinburgh gets my vote, nicer people and its a lovely place.

True. I'd love to live there but can't afford it unfortunately.

My scummy friends seem to manage it, though they're probably paying half the standard rent for the shame of living in a place called Gayfield Street.

Eh Renton?  What about Liverpool?

Remind me where your obsession with Liverpool comes from again? :lol:

I'm referring to the day you vehemently defended the scousers that heckled Alan Smith for having the temerity to break his leg at Anfield. :lol:

I thought it was you that was obsessed with Liverpool or is it just Scousers?

Aye, it's all Poles and Lithuanians these days. Can't move for Kasias and Rasas and Grzegzorzszs.

By the end of October it'll be both cold and dark in Edinburgh - go to London - it'll be (pretty) quiet and the Xmas rush won't have started

London's probably at its nicest if you can catch it on a sunny autumn weekend actually, yeah. The parks can be lovely. If it's grim and grey then it's a complete hellhole, obviously.

Of course with cheap flights you could go anywhere else in Europe if you have a passport. I'd go to Barcelona personally. Or Liverpool.
