Londoners have given their verdict on everything they think will change in the city over the next decade — and unsurprisingly, pints feature heavily.

The cost of living is hitting people across the country hard, but many in the capital are feeling the pinch.

So it’s no wonder that Londoners expect it to get even more expensive.

That’s one of the most important things that Reddit users believe will change the most in London by 2033.

One social media user really opened the floodgates by asking others on the site: “How different do you think London will be in 10 years?”

And the answers are as wild as you’d hope, with predictions on the cost of a pint ranging from £12 to as much as £100.

One person said in response: “£50 for a pint and the District Line train I’m on is still stopped at a red signal.”

“We can easily expect 12-17 pound pints by 2033,” said another user.

A third couldn’t help but joke about the potential future price of your favorite beer, adding: “£100 a pint”.

Reports from last year suggested that the price of a pint in London could rise to £10.50 by the end of the decade if inflation continues to rise at its current rate.

Other top answers suggest that 2033 will see fewer commutes, fewer cars, and even more gentrification.

One Redditor asked, “Will there be another place that isn’t gentrified and too expensive for the less well-paid?”

“The average house price will be £1million. Wages will stagnate :/,” predicted another.

A Londoner commented: “Drinks in clubs are going to get even more expensive and more clubs will have closed. It’s a catastrophe of fucking tragedy.

Someone else added: “The biggest shift will be for pandemic trends of remote work to continue. Fewer commuters, fewer need to spend big bucks on infrastructure so we can spend it on improving local neighborhoods.

“There will need to be a shift in the city to balance office needs with residential/leisure offerings to prevent it from becoming a ghost town. We will see more pedestrian and cycling infrastructure as it is cheaper, and fewer cars on the streets as the cost of running them increases.”

However, some others are not so convinced that we will see a big difference in the next 10 years.

One summed it up particularly well, sharing: “To give a serious answer, most likely it won’t be particularly different. Little by little, London is changing but remains remarkably constant, even over a decade. Some places will close, others will open.

“Some areas that are uncool become cool, some that are cool become uncool. But in general it will be quite similar to today. For example, if you think back to 2013, no The a lot has changed.

“To illustrate this, if you could somehow time travel a person 100 years ago and get them into central London, they could probably find their way around pretty well – their favorite pub might even still be acting!”
