I miss London, I lived there 6 years. I've lived in Toronto, been to New York several times, I live in Amsterdam now, I've been to Bangkok, LA, Rome, etc. But what is it about London that makes it number 1? Is it only my rosy memories?

I visited London more than twenty years ago. It was a short visit, just a few days, but enough to love it. I don´t know if it´s number one, but sure it's a great city.

I was in London for a few days about two years ago, and I absolutely loved it. I really did not want to leave. Part of me wishes I could just go and live there. It's really a beautiful city. I don't know what it is, but it was just great to be there. I have good memories of London.

I also have wonderful memories of living in London. I was there for more than 20 years. I have visited other capital cities, and I have lived in other towns and cities, but I still think London is great. I think it is a combination of its long history, the mix of culture and the people.

Well, we all have our favourites. In your case, it is London. For some, it could be their own cities. I believe London's cosmopolitan culture, the Underground tube, its monuments , Thames River and prosperity make it the choice of millions.

Also, it is home to many of the world's big personalities.

I've never lived in London, but I would love to do it once. It is so big that you'll never get tired off it, there's always something new to do, lots of music and culture and things to take pictures off, plus I have some really good friends there. I'm not sure I'd want to be there now though, as they don't seem to handle the cold weather very well.
