London most expensive, dirty city in Europe: survey Wed Mar 12, 12:21 PM ET LONDON (AFP) - London is the dirtiest and most expensive city in Europe, while Brussels is the most boring, according to a British survey published on Wednesday. ADVERTISEMENT London edged out Paris for the unwanted accolade of dirtiest city in the survey of more than 1,100 travellers carried out by TripAdvisor. Respondents said Paris was the most unfriendly, followed by London and Moscow, but the French capital is still working its old magic as it was voted the most romantic destination in Europe and the best for shopping and dining. London won out for having the best nightlife and public parks. The cleanest city is Zurich, the survey said, although the tidy Swiss city also finished equal second behind EU hub Brussels as the most boring place. Prague was elected the best bargain city, followed by Budapest and Lisbon. Despite the weak dollar, half of the Americans surveyed said they planned to visit Europe this year, the same number as last year. Here is the a rundown of the top three in various categories: Best bargain city: 1. Prague 2. Budapest 3. Lisbon. Most expensive: 1. London 2. Paris 3. Rome, Venice, Oslo, Moscow (tied) Most friendly locals: 1. Dublin 2. Amsterdam 3. London. Most unfriendly locals: 1. Paris 2. London 3. Moscow. Best cuisine: 1. Paris 2. Rome 3. Florence. Best shopping: 1. Paris 2. London 3. Rome. Best nightlife: 1. London 2. Amsterdam 3. Paris. Best parks: 1. London 2. Paris 3. Barcelona, Amsterdam, Copenhagen (tied). Most romantic: 1. Paris 2. Venice 3. Rome. Most attractive locals: 1. Rome 2. Paris 3. Stockholm. Cleanest: 1. Zurich 2. Copenhagen 3. Stockholm. Dirtiest: 1. London 2. Paris 3. Rome, Athens (tied). Most boring: 1. Brussels 2. Zurich, Oslo, Warsaw, Zagreb (tied). Well least you are not #1 for boredom so cheer up!. Funny that you English insult the Irish, but they are #1 for being the most friendly locals to visit while in Dublin. tigertony

"Most friendly locals: 1. Dublin 2. Amsterdam 3. London.

Most unfriendly locals: 1. Paris 2. London 3. Moscow."

^ That alone proves this survey means less than nothing.


"Funny that you English insult the Irish, but they are #1 for being the most friendly locals to visit while in Dublin."

Of course they're friendly, most of the people surveyed weren't English I'd wager. And you make it sound like we Brits are the only ones doing the insulting...

I would highly recommend Tower Bridge old boy.  The tour boats flock to it for the fantastic views, while the majority of them are open air, exposing the plentiful foreigners.  There is also a charming Weatherspoons just down the road, to fill ones bladder.

   Well now i have been to Athens,Belfast,Berlin,Cornwall,Dublin,Edinboro,Frankfurt,Hamburg,Paris,Warsaw,and York!.
 
   And they all speak English,but not your Kings!. And why? Because they are all here in Pa,USA, not in France,Germany,Greece, Ireland,or the the United Kingdom!.
 
  So the moral is? That is all that matters to me!.
 
  And btw,i do not dislike you Brits,and infact,quite enjoyed having a few with the RN at the  Bull and Bear in Hong Kong.  Now those were the good ole days for us both.

  Well now Bob when those towns and cities where being made it was indeed your Kings English!. You should try reading some American and Red Coat history. And try looking at a map of PA!. Oh and i forgot Moscow as well. And Bob i meant Edinboro,not Edinburgh.
    And Bob, you sure do get mugged alot, as has already been discussed in a previous post,lol!. You really should try taking some self defence courses and perhaps you will not be slapped or mugged so often. Well just trying to help Bob.
