"Knowing the Lingo" London Local Custom Tip by teafortwo

London Local Customs: 717 reviews and 883 photos

For the benefit of all tourists who have struggled to get their teeth around "Leicester Square" - its pronounced "Lester", and not "Lie - sester", as I have heard on several occasions!
"Gloucester" is similarly "Gloster" - see, its easy innit !!!!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
