    Nowhere in London is "dangerous" (in the real sense of the word) if you're sensible.

    Suburban wimps need to man up.

    If you define "dangerous" as "lost likely to get stabbed or beaten up", then anywhere. It's no more dangerous than if you were to mouth someone off at a bar in any other city.
    However, gangs do operate in suburbs. I'm from West London and I can tell you that Hayes is a pretty shady place. 12 people (of a non British ethnicity) kicked down my friends flat door, held a knife to her throat, stabbed her boyfriend and stole his wallet.
    All that for a wallet. They had to pay for the damage, too.
    Just be wary.

    You can't label one part of London as the most dangerous. You have the same probability of getting mugged etc.. anywhere in the country or in London. =D

    No particular place is as bad as the neighboring 'town'. Everywhere is pretty similair purely because it's so easily accessable to get around (tube, bus, etc). It's the same thing in every large multicultural city. If you have common sense you should be okay.

    Brixton, Tottenham, Hackney, Peckham and Deptford are probably the worst.

    Haha probably not. This is just something I've just heard from friends who live there.

    Having lived in SW London though, I make an effort to avoid Brixton.

    No!

    But seriously, if you want a breakdown of crime etc check the met crime map. But, as is oft repeated on these threads is the fact that more or less all of london is pretty safe as long as you have some common sense - your stupidity is your own worst enemy (not direct at you Crazy Paving, it is merely a wild generalisation)

    I know and I've never been in a dangerous situation in London as I don't cause trouble and keep out of things. Just saying Stratford or most of East London whenever I've been to it is not a very pleasant area.
