East London is not the friendliest place lol. By tips, what do you mean? Places to go for tourists?

Just treat it like a normal place in my opinion. No you don't need to worry about getting stabbed unless you are part of a gang or any weird things like that. Enjoy the moment and make the most out of your experience since London is truly a nice place to be in

Go Peckham, heard it's one of the most affluent areas in London. Also, loads of tourist attractions around there!

- Keep your valuables hidden! - Snatch theft and pick-pocketing is a real thing
- Try not to look like a tourist - Be purposeful and confident as you walk otherwise it is easy to suss out people that are "vulnerable" and easy targets
- Be aware of your surroundings - Yes, it's London. Yes, the city has a lot of hype around it. Yes, it is probably your first time and you will be amazed at basically everything, BUT being self-aware and noticing what's going on in your surroundings will save you, your valuables, and also give you time to react should anything go left.
- LDN transport is bliss and easily accessible, but wear comfortable shoes in case your plans include walking a lot
- Carry an umbrella, coat, or extra jumper in case of weather change
- You can pay by card more or less anywhere, but take some change too
- Random but if you are in a busy street area, please don't walk slow.. especially if you are in a group.. - London is a busy place, people have places to go, and if you are dragging your feet or blocking the path you are in the way of progress
- Another random, but applies anywhere tbf, don't go staring at people. That's practically an invitation for confrontation

- What ROTL94 said


Anyways, thanks for reading my TEDtalk
I'm gonna go back to the shadows of reading random posts ✌️
