How Much Of A London Hipster Are You?
You're not very London and you're not very hipster. Either you just stay inside all day, or you spend all your time in Leicester Square and Oxford Circus. Or maybe you're soooo hipster that the stuff you do is too obscure to make it on to a BuzzFeed checklist. Congratulations!
You live in London, but you're not a hipster. Sure you like drinking nice coffee and taking pretty Instagrams, but it's not your priority in life. You've got nothing against central London, and you even think Clapham is OK. You do all the cool things to do in London, but you're not a twat about it.
You're a hipster, but you don't live in London. You love good coffee, and you're always trying to find the next big thing. Maybe you've visited London, but you definitely don't live there. It's a bit mainstream for you anyway.
You're a massive London hipster. You've got your finger on the pulse and you stand out from the crowd. Tourists annoy you and you think big brands are overrated. You like to spend your time in the parts of London that still feel authentic, you avoid the crowds (unless you know it's going to be worth it), and you look super cool the whole time.
