Tourists find London unfriendly, dirty and expensive: survey | Reuters

Cancun Beach

(Reuters) – London may have put on a cheerful face during the Olympics but tourists have still rated the city poorly in terms of friendliness, cleanliness and value for money, a survey showed on Thursday.

Of 40 cities worldwide, London this year ranked second to last for the friendliness of its locals, according to a poll by travel website TripAdvisor.

Only Moscow fared worse, while Mexico‘s Cancun ranked first.

Britain’s capital barely performed better in the nine other categories of the poll, ranking 28th for safety, 26th for cleanliness and 35th for best value for money.

On the upside, London was rated fourth best city for shopping – behind New York City, Bangkok and Dubai – and fifth for the quality of taxi services.

The study was based on responses from 75,000 TripAdvisor users surveyed last month.
