    I'm sorry, but there's loads more to Leicester Square than the few fronting buildings. Take the side alleys, so much more going on.

    I get that the souvenirs shops are bad quality made in china, but really when i visit a city i like to have an actual object that represents the city, like my favourite monument, i don't really care about a poster or tea lol

    The last time I visited London, I had a stay in the Earls Court area and I did not venture into the tourist spots, which is probably why I'd had so much fun.

    We are staying in Notting Hill in a few weeks. Can you recommend a pub that has great fish and chips?

    What’s wrong with “made in China”? That’s really offensive!

    Leicester square is awful. Poppy's is the best fish and chips. Sunday roast at a great pub is always amazing. Bond street is best shopping Selfridges on Oxford is great but there are some junky pub type places. Love Covent Garden too for people watching.

    About 20 years ago, I used to see numerous vendors selling hotdogs and burgers from little metal trolley stoves. Nowadays these usually sell caramelised nuts. However, I was recently surprised to see a vendor that still had hotdogs.
    A few things to note- These little stoves have no coverings on them, open to the wind, rain and bird poop. Also, where do they keep their stock? Are those little cubbyholes below the hot-plate refrigerated?
    The reason I was surprised to see a hotdog/burger vendor with one of these little trolleys is because about 20 years ago I saw a show following health inspectors investigating these kind of vendors. The raw sausages were kept in a greasy cardboard box in the trolley, next to a gas cylinder that fed the hotplate (so, no- not refrigerated) The health inspector also pointed out how there was nowhere for the vendor to wash their hands and that the trolley was so poorly put together, that the whole thing could blow up!

    Yeah… The rickshaws…. yeah…
    I've not got one, but when I find myself coming out of the Hypodrome Casino at 2.00 am (it's one of the few places to get an after hours drink) I always get approached by these guys, telling me they'll take me to find girls.
    Now, I'm not shaming sex workers, or even those who partake in such practices, but these guys creep me out. I spoke to one rickshaw driver and he said he could to take me to a place where there was a girl in a room whom I "could do anything [I] like to". The whole thing had a "human trafficking" vibe to it.

    Nice video and unafraid to speak reality. I am Asian and we have Chinese products everywhere so to buy them again would be hilarious 😂

    Here in Salt Lake City, Utah, we have only one scam. It is the Mormon Church. Mormonism steals your money & soul.

    I agree with you 100% about these fast food places. I live in north east England and I ave been ripped off twice by these fast food merchants and will never visit again. The service and manners of the staff is also extremely rude.

    If you want fish and chips, go to a fish and chip shop. Not a pub.

    DO NOT GET IN A RICKSHAW!! They're still not regulated, I see them charge people astronomical amounts of money for short rides.

    Anything that says traditional is most probably daylight robbery because they know tourists want “authentic and traditional “. Go to a chippy that just says fish and chips on the display and doesn’t have traditional on it

    As an Italian in London, I often wonder why so many restaurants put forward this fake image of being Italian restaurant and somehow still succeed to the point of opening a unit in Leicester Square… not a single person in the kitchen is Italian tho and their food is absolutely vile.

    I’m referring to Bella Italia, SpaghettiHouse, Little Italy and F&Bs
