There isn't a WC3! :p:
I was being sarcastic, don't even live in London. I wasn't sure if you were being sarcastic too, but judging from your long post, I think you weren't

I have walked the streets of London in the early hours alone, talked to strangers, beggars etc, been to brixton at 1am, been to NW at 11pm, lived in East london, where I met some drug dealers, central London is non-corrupt, dont know about west London but London is the safest place to be because of the population density.

I disagree with people going on about willesden being a bad place, its inhabited by old age people and some teenagers, I dont think any gangs are active in the area but it gains a bad reputation because of its proximity to other run down areas.

Central London you're more or less fine. If you go wandering around Peckham every night you might run into some trouble but as long as you use a bit of common sense (like don't parade around flashing wads of notes or your iphone/blackberry/whatever) then you should be OK. It's a big city with a huge population, of course bad things will happen from time to time - it's up to you to stay vigilant and minimise the risk of putting yourself in danger.

Hmmmmmm I could tell you a story about something that happened in Willsden which involves gangs, guns etc lol. I agree its not the worst place in NW but recently there have been quite a few shootings stabbings there in the past few years.

yeah, I think that Willesden Green area is ok (the area nearby to Cricklewood, Brondesbury) but the Willesden Junction area (nr Halesden) is horrible.

I've always found Glasgow to be far worse than London for running into trouble - anyone else agree?

Much of the same applies in terms of, the more central you stay, the better off you'll be. But I definitely think the roughest bits of Glasgow (that I've been through anyway - Maryhill and Easterhouse the worst) are rougher than the roughest parts of London.

Having said that, I guess it differs completely from person to person based on individual experiences.

Just stay away from Stonebridge Park and Harlesden.
... I don't care how 'vibrant' it is, it's a dump.

You always hear stories of places like Peckham and some East-End areas being all rough and full of crime.

Fair enough, you know, there is crime there. Peckham is bad, as said others are. However, its no different from any other city or town.

They all have their rough places and they all have their good places; regardless of size, really.

Night time in Peckham, acting stupid, being loud or just looking like a target, yeah you're asking for something to happen. I choose Peckham as my example here as it is one of the "rougher" places of London, and there is a lot of crime there. It goes for all the rough areas of London and indeed of most towns and cities too, however.

You can avoid becoming part of the statistic if you avoid the areas you think may be unsafe. Walking into a dark tunnel with a crowd of hooded teenagers creating a line between you and the exit; well, then that would be an example of a bad place to go. Whilst you'll rarely experience something that bad, you get my point. Don't go to areas within the rough parts that look "dodgy", basically.

In fact, you can sum this up with: "Don't act a fool, avoid the more dangerous areas unless necessary and don't needlessly expose yourself to the chance". :cool:

However, there are some horrible places, particulary the eastern part of North London e.g. Tottenham South (N15), Tottenham Hale (N17), Wood Green (N22), Lower & Upper Edmonton (N18 & N9), Stoke Newington (N16). Horrible areas, gangs with knifes, drugs, poverty. !
My ex-GF used to live in Green Lanes. I used to get the bus from Wood Green tube to her place near the North Circular - never any trouble at all. And never any bother in the pubs and clubs round there either. And unless you want to get involved in a Kurds v Turks smackdown, then the knife gangs aren't much of an issue either.
