Safe Areas in London

by fredoitaly

I'm thinking about going to London for 10 days in November with my husband. I'm trying to get an idea which area to rent a hotel. Can anyone tell me which areas are safe and which ones to stay away from?

Thanks,
Lisa

All central areas are safe (though King's Cross and Soho can be a bit sleazy, and are perhaps best avoided). Kensington is popular.

Cannot say that robine does not know London. I recommend that you check out his home page for further instructions. I certainly love London, it was the first place I ever saw outside of my country. To try to add something to robine's excellent page would be redundant....d;o)

I like staying in the Bayswater area and have done so many times, often on my own. I always felt very safe. Twice this year I have stayed in the Westland Hotel on Bayswater Road, that's a place I can really recommend.
There are several tube stations close-by, shops and the beautiful Kensington Garden is just across the street.

Stay within the following central London postcodes and you'll be OK:

Only exceptions are that I would avoid Soho and King's Cross.

Central London is generally safe. I like to stay at Paddington area.

Re: Safe Areas in London

I agree about Kings Cross but I think Soho is perfectly safe and even a fun place to look around in the evening - but definitely make a day time visit there, Soho Square is lovely, Carnaby Street is historic, Wardour St is cool, lots of cafes on Old Compton St. The whole area is a must for a visit to London.

Soho is safe... yes maybe sleazy in some parts but still feels pretty safe... and lots going on in evening if you're into night life.
Other nice areas to stay in: Kensington, Bloomsbury, Westminster (check out City Inn), Hoxton

Travel Tips for London

London Eye

by bianchis

To get an overall view take a ride on the London Eye. The view is fantastic on a clear day.

Getting to the London Eye

The nearest stations are Westminster (Exit 1 Westminster Pier) and Waterloo, which are both within 5 minutes walking distance.
From Waterloo mainline station, take exit 6 for the South Bank and follow the signs. Theatre. Dont leave without going to the theatre whether it is a musical or a ballet it is worth the experience. The older theatres are unique in the atmosphere they present

Cheap Eats

by tvor

London is one of the most expensive cities in the world. Hotels and food are costly but you can find budget options and still avoid the flophouse and street vendor options.

For food, try pubs. Everyone says that. Some pubs are still a bit pricey but still they're cheaper than restaurants. Cafes are often good value, if they're diner style cafe's not trendy "Cafes" or bars. Tea rooms are often good too, for a light lunch or late afternoon soup and sandwich. Often Chinese and Curry restaurants have good value for money, serving up large portions that can be shared between 2 or more people. The Wetherspoons chain of pubs tends to have really reasonable prices, there is a small number of items where two meals selected from them cost about 6 pounds total.

If you are in the area of some of the markets, like Camden or Portobello Road, there are always hot food kiosks where you can get fast food (as in quick and hot, not tepid and bad for you), often a tasty ethnic dish such as curry or chinese, cheap.

Grocery stores and places like Marks and Spencer food halls have take out sandwiches and salads and beverages. They even have small bottles of wine. Avoid fast food joints which, while reasonable in price though probably more expensive than you're used to at home, don't tend to have good quality food. Besides, why go to a McDonald's in London! You can do that at home!

If you want to treat yourself to a really nice restaurant, go for lunch when the menu will be cheaper. Some churches (For example St. Mary Le Bow near St. Pauls... see restaurant tip) have tea and lunch rooms and museum cafes are often very reasonably priced.

For specific suggestions, Timeout has a book on Cheap Eats in London and i believe there's a Cheap Sleeps in London as well. Cheap eats can be bought off Amazon.

One of the things I like best...

by Monique_T

One of the things I like best in London is Hyde Park. It's great to walk around there on a sunny day or just sit in the sun. And on sunday watch all the people at speaker's corner.
The one at this pictures was carrying a walkman. He said something...was quiet for a moment like he was listening on the tape...and then said something again..and repeated that all the time. So..did he put his speech on tape and listened to it while standing there? We will never know..

'Please', and 'Thank you' go a long way...

by Durfun

These words really are always good to use all over the globe, regardless of whether the other party in question reciprocates !

You just do your bit, forget about others.

If anything, politeness doesn't cost anything, and more importantly, can do you no harm.

'Please, please, please and...

by Mallafri

'Please, please, please and sorry, sorry, sorry'! These are the two most important words in London and England. When ever asking for something, directions, ordering food, anything, you add the word 'please'. It's seen rude not to, and I promise, you get much better service with just that simple word.
Another thing is 'sorry'. Whenever you bump into an Englishman, even if he's the one bumping into you, you say 'sorry'. It's common curticy in England.
These two words will help you get better service and help on the street, and will also make your stay in London seem even more nicer!
