The craziest thing that’s ever happened in London

July 29, 2014 10:00 am

Everyone comes back from holiday with an anecdote or two; people share stories about their adventures and experiences, from the obscene to the unexpected; the hilarious to the horrific. There are plenty of tales to be told from trips to London, that’s for sure, so we asked people just that.

What was the craziest thing that happened to you in London?

The London Pass carried out a huge survey in 2013 asking all of our customers for their feedback and experiences of their trip to London. Among the varied responses were some stand out experiences – and here are a few of our favourites:

“Visited Camden Town!”

“The London Bridge Experience”

“The prices at Harrods”

“I became a shopaholic”

“Someone in the street accosted me!”

“Someone actually spoke to me on the tube”

“Got completely lost in Harrod’s”

“We had great weather!”

“I was invited to a private party after watching a panto performance, along with the actors and their friends.”

“Getting caught up in the annual Santa Run”

“A bird pooed on me. Seriously.”

“Spending new year’s eve at the Big Ben !”

“A sales man refusing to sell me a flat cap because he thought it didn’t match the rest of my attire”

“When my girlfriend was kissed by another girl in a gay bar”

“Experiencing Boxing Day Sales”

“Seeing my sister-in-law fall in love with cider”

“Walking straight into the houses of parliament without a bother”

“Met Russell Brand walking his dog!  Had a great chat.”

“Took a 60 pound cab ride, which cost about $100 US!”

“A Raven at tower of London making a mess on my coat”

“In the tube, I was amazed to see young people giving their seat to older people”
