I'm 18 and my Dad won't let me and my friend go to London for a day Watch

My friend and I want to go see a gig in London and we currently live in Wales. I'm legally an adult and should be able to make my own decisions but he's adamant that I can't go. It's only a 3hr drive and we'll be getting a coach down there and back straight away

What can I do?

Does he have a reason not to trust you to go? Really as long as you’re living with them you should respect them enough to listen to them. If you’re reliable and youre friends are good and you haven’t given your parents reasons to not trust you to go you can try convince them and lay out facts, show what coach you’re getting, that you know where you’re getting off, that you’ve got the route planned to the gig etc.

He just worries a lot. He always phones me when I'm on nights out and didn't want me going to Cardiff for a gig which is only 30 mins away. I've traveled up to Manchester plenty of times for football matches, sometimes even on my own and I've always updated him on what's happening, etc. The friend in question is someone I've known for over 7 years at this point.

He's probably worrying with how much the crime in London has been in the news recently, you need to find out his genuine reasons why he thinks it's a bad idea, also it'll likely depend on what you're going to London for.

Might be thinking he's in for a 6 hour rescue mission if that last bus gets cancelled.
also night bus passengers can be a bit hair raising

perhaps a cheap hotel would be better?
