well somebody was going to be bored enough eventually.
lnodno isn't a place in Wales.
if you get on the 177 from greenwich towards charlton. it goes left past the maritime museum, at one point if you look left (esp at night) it has a beautiful view across to canary wharf... it's so so pretty, aswell as the GMT green lazer thingy streaking up into the sky...
west hampstead to waterloo via trafalgar sq, oxford st, piccadilly circus, all the GREATS
WhitechapLOL? I can never decide. I'm going back there now.
at night. :)
But I thought we were talking about residentially / suburban areas. Otherwise I'd have said Covent Garden way and all that.
if you walk around all those random roads around tott ct rd, near ULU and stuff. it's really cool at night and you find the weirdest things. :)
i spent 2 hours walking around there once.
I get self-conscious about posting on these Londoncentric threads. But then I think that people are probably going to know what to expect when they open a thread with a title like this one so it's not really a problem
In conclusion: south bank
down by the river in hammersmith.
it's really pretty and has AWESOME pubs.
Stoke Newington Church Street
The South Bank
in fact there's loads of East London I need to explore
but who needs exploring when you can spend endless hours on DiS
My bit of Bow.
I loves it. Fit boys and flowing beer and bouncers who are kind.
I also love London Fields for Sundays, Greenwich Park and Primrose Hill for sunny days. Soho for dirt :)

Yeah but you end up in Charlton...
Greenwich is fairly ace. Particularly if you're a student there and so have an excuse to wander through the university grounds... between the two domes facing Docklands after dark, when all the buildings (Docklands and the uni) are lit up.
The Millennium Bridge is pretty good an' all. Actually, that goes for the whole walk along the Bankside, I often wander from the Tate Modern down to London Bridge to get the train home.
The bench facing the lake-side cafe in Hyde Park
The top of the Oxo tower
The shop of pink sparkly things in Spitalfields
seeing as we're talking Greenwich...
Outside the Trafalgar pub, nice views, or the little pub round the corner from it where you can sit inside and have a mad good view over the river.
Also, the point in Blackheath. Just a patch of grass but many an evening in summer was spent there looking down on london drinking cans of stella and explaining to firemen that our bonfire was under control, so I have fond memories of it.
Notable mentions - Brenchly Gardens. Nunhead Cemetery.
Dalston Dalston Dalston
and barbican ;)
at 5 in the morning. With some bloated middle aged hooker offering a good time for a hit.
never heard of it before, never been there before until last friday. But it's a magical place, of the kind that I never expected to find in london
is nice but full of hobo's and camera crews
... used to be ok, but now, on Saturday nights it's like Essex.
I quite like London Fields... Broadway Market has some nice pubs and great jazz on Sundays.
the south bank/borough market.
there you go.
also pembridge road, where all the retro stores are.
