As the title says, really. I'm travelling to London for a concert that finishes at midnight so I won't be able to get home until the following morning. I really don't want to have to pay extra for accommodation so was wondering if it's acceptable to stay overnight at the station?

A lot of homeless people sleep there I think but it’s unsafe… Do you not have a friend who lives in London?

You can if you really want to but I don't think it's safe, you could get your stuff stolen while you're sleeping. If you have a friend with you maybe you could take turns in sleeping? Or just don't fall asleep

Any 24 hour cafes like starbucks around there that you could stay in? Probably not a good idea to sleep in the station.

Not a good idea. Have you considered booking into a hostel? There are lots of basic but safe places dotted around central London.

Thanks all for the advice. Unfortunately I don't know anyone in London and I doubt I'll be allowed to stay in a café overnight so may just book a hotel.
