: : : : Do you go up to London or down to London?

: : :
: : : One goes up to London. Wherever one starts from.

: : : DFG

: : Yes, but that curious convention means that Londoners starting at Oxbridge go up to university and then up again when they come home. High flyers I expect.

: You have hit upon a slight glitch in the system...

: With one minor proviso. The only way to Cambridge is down.


And now for something completely irrelevant:

To London, to London,
To buy a fat pig.
Back again, back again,
Jig a jig jig.

That's neither up nor down. And perhaps I've got it completely wrong.
