    Which areas of London are commonly considered lower class and therefore avoided?

    Some of the outer areas of London are relatively poor, e.g. Croydon, Mitcham, Edmonton, Barking, Dagenham. In the inner city it's mostly Brixton, Peckham, Southwark, Tottenham, Tower Hamlets (excluding Canary Wharf), Dalston, Hackney, although a lot of the inner city areas have seen a rise in middle class young people moving in because the rising rents make the traditionally nice areas of London too expensive to live in.

    However, most areas have a mixture of working and middle class people as well as some upper class; the ones I mentioned are just ones that happen to be dominated by poorer groups in society. There's no need to avoid an area because it is dominated by poorer people- the main shopping areas and some main roads are all very safe, just don't go inside the council estates and dodgy looking streets(especially at night) as they tend to have some gang activity.

    Rubbish.

    If those people you call poor moved out of those areas you listed, they would automatically become middle class.

    They are poor relative to Mayfair residents, but middle class when compared to the rest of the country.

    No one living anywhere in London is working class.

    why? there is more poverty in London than anywhere else in the UK except perhaps some Northern industrial towns. there are plenty of unemployed people in London who rely on benefits (not 'working class' but poor) who would struggle to live anywhere in the UK. Your statement just shows that you know nothing about poverty in London relative to the UK.

    Didn't London have some major riots a few years ago? They were as bad as the Paris riots! Weren't they in East London (Google says North London but that's not what I remember)!

    But didn't the riots spread eastwards? The most west it got was Clapham Common and that warehouse that burned down.
