"One thing to remember...." London Local Custom Tip by Fen

London Local Customs: 710 reviews and 860 photos


One thing to remember while in London is that waiting in long Queue's has become part of our culture now since England won the World Cup back in 1966.

We are so efficient in making people queue we even let the ladies queue for there Toilets, but further to my investigation I found out the conspiracy theory behind the reason why...?
Its simply to slow the Woman down when she's out and about shopping, hoping she may forget or not bother going back to the last shop for those Prada shoes. (hehe...)
