    These can be best appreciated from around 4pm (roughly when the sun sets in London in December) and the shops are still open.

    Keep a stiff upper lip! and, as always, be respectful when visiting a new place.

    The traditional black taxis of London are now colorful and boast all sorts of publicity (I am not criticizing).

    Outside Pubs

    In London it is very common to relax sitting in a pub after work enjoying the "good weather" (so to say) and having a drink or two..

    When walking in London parks it is a good idea to bring some food with you. Birds and squirrels would appreciate it.

    They are becoming rare, but you still can encounter them: English gentlemen.

    And, when the Ascot horse race is on the calendar, the ladies will show their hats.

    If some one's wearing a costume, they're usually pretty nice about letting you take pictures. Just go and ask!

    If you wear eye-catching clothing, people will start conversations with you. Our shirts say: Good girls go to Heaven, Bad girls go to London.

    The colorful taxis in London are fun to make into a collection of pictures. Cheaper than riding in one!

    I was told not to tip the barmen at pubs. It is quite different that in Canada where you are supposed to tip them 10% just for giving you a beer.
