    I know no dangers, besides the usual pickpockets, that one finds unfortunately on all animate places in cities, here how for example here at that Tower-Bridge.
    Ich kenne hier keine außergewöhnlichen Gefahren, außer den üblichen Taschendieben, die man leider in allen belebten Großstädten findet, auch hier an der Tower-Bridge an der Themse.

    Pickpockets can be everywhere. Even in the popular pubs where you think your belongings are save in the company with friends.

    You can't image my face when I was walking in the Portobello Road and I saw this warning. I think it's a good idea but I wasn't expecting something like that.

    my bag is always on the side of my body

    Like almost any other touristic city you should watch your bag and stuff from pickpockets.
    The most popular places are the underground , the markets , squares.

    Pick pockets can be a bit of a problem. For the ladies I would suggest purses be worn under a jacket if possible and the guys may want to put wallets in front pockets.
