Is London safe for a 17 year old boy alone?
Hello. I am a 17 year old boy and will be going to London by myself this Saturday as my parents will no longer be able to come with me.
I want to know if it's safe or if there is likely to be somebody harassing me. I am going to areas like Kensington and West Hampstead, as well as travelling on the busses and underground network. I do not want to be trapped on a train with some person trying to harass me in a tunnel. I know everything is possible, I just want somebody to tell me who lives in London if this happens a lot and if it is likely to happen to me. Thank you.

You’re visiting nice/ touristy parts of the city so it’s unlikely that anything could happen.
I’ve traveled alone around London since, I was about 12/13 especially, that’s where I grew up.

London is quite safe, just do not walk along talkng on your mobile phone, look up and look where you are going, you will be fine.

That will depend on your common sense.

Teenagers live in London, they go to school there every day, travel on tubes and buses.
There is not mass slaughter is there.
Grow a pair.

You will be fine. Nothing will happen. Just relax. If London is really unsafe then no one would be going there.

Somebody like who is going to harass you? You sound like an idiot. Best stay at home with mummy and daddy

That sort of thing could happen anywhere. Just mind your own business and i'm sure you'll be fine.

My son got himself around all the main areas of London from the age of 13. Buses and tubes are all safe during the day, and mostly in the evenings as well, though you might encounter a few drunks after dark, but they are unlikely to do you any harm.

No problem. After all, there are 18 year old students living there who get on perfectly well getting around on their own.
Plus you're planning to be in nice areas, so you will be fine.

It's not inherently unsafe, and if you're travelling during the day to places like Kensington you're unlikely to have any issues.
