'is' or 'was': Which would be more appropriate in the context?

A few years ago, i visited London. It is/was such a nice place, probably the best place i have ever been to.

I think 'is' should be used because the rest of the sentence is in present perfect tense. But i am not sure.


It depends on how you see it now - as a place which is worse or as a place which is still nice.

  • A few years ago, I visited London. It is such a nice place. - I still think it's a nice place.
  • A few years ago, I visited London. It was such a nice place. - It's not a nice place anymore but a few years ago it was. Maybe it was destroyed or maybe nobody can visit it anymore because it doesn't exist?
