... also commuting in/out of Zurich on public transport (trains) is easy.
wheras in London it's a real pain in the arse ( 3rd world train system in a 1st world city centre... )... a bit of googling will show you just how bad England's train system is.... so commuting in/out of London from some place with decent accommodation can take a LONG time... and be
quite unpleasant ( extreme overcrowding, trains not on time/cancelled, etc. ).
I'm not so sure that the problem is with the train system itself, but just the number of people who are trying to use it everyday. I'm a Brit who lived and worked in London for over 20 years, so I have a little experience. 3-4 minutes to wait for a tube is not bad the problem is when one on the tubes are delayed slightly.

The main problem with London is the number of people who want to live there. I moved there because I was told "to get on my bike" by Fowler (?)
