    What have your experiences been like travelling around the vibrant multicultural metropolis on your own?
    Do you generally feel safe being out and about on your own during the day, evening and night?

    How do you feel when you're alone on public transport in London? Perhaps you avoid using particular forms of transport e.g. Uber and its squad of recently-arrived immigrant drivers?

    Do you see your solo-self travelling on the "Night Tube" late at night when it's finally introduced later this year?

    Share your thoughts.

    I don't think I feel unsafe, although I have experienced assault and harassment on the tube and bus.

    Also your implication that this is to do with multiculturalism has pissed me off; the worst instances of assault were done by white, British men.

    Pretty safe tbh. Though if I'm coming home very late then usually my dad or brother will meet me at the station as its a bit dodgy around my area late at night.

    Feel perfectly safe on transport though and would definitely use the night tube alone.

    After a few bad experiences, sad to say I don't feel safe anymore. :emo:

    London's a multicultural city hence why I described it as one. So no need for the outrage.

    You won't ask this question of a man, would you?
    Nah, not in this particular instance.

    Asking men doesn't play into his thinly veiled (pun not intended) agenda of demonising muh evil immigrants assaulting women, because it doesn't cause the same emotional response.

    Nah London is cool. I live in inner London, and I have had some close encounters with danger, but thankfully it never escalated and nothing ever happened.

    But I have family members that have been jumped and their phones stolen, so it is always good to be cautious and to stay on your P&Qs.

    Anyone is capable of assaulting a woman. Ethnicity has little to do with it. So why don't you stop polluting the thread with fake outrage posts.

    Don't think London is the most dangerous city. Some ghastly suburbs of Manchester or Bradford are scarier.

    Mate, no one's stupid here. You deliberately bought up multiculturalism when it wasn't needed. Your post history is filled with race baiting and you complaining about about other races. You are implying ethnicity, or ethnic culture more specifically, has something to do with it. Why don't you stop polluting TSR with your passive aggressive race baiting?

    London is frequently described as a "multicultural" city so I don't see what the problem is.It isn't specifically about ethnicity, religion or immigration.

    I'll keep making new threads as I wish for as long as I'm able to. If it bothers you then tough.

    Depends on the part of London. I feel safe walking around at 3am on my own in South Kensington. Wouldn't feel the same in Peckham.

    Do you feel like that purely based on Peckham's infamous reputation or because you've had a bad experience in that part of London?

    I've never felt unsafe in London. My fav part is taking a double decker, they're always so friendly. Here's a pic of future doctors and engineers heading down to the local library.

    I've never felt unsafe tbh. I've been scared but that was mostly out of paranoia and walking in the wrong place.
