Subject: RE: BS: Visiting London on a Budget
Just be wary of the usual caveats - don't flash mobile phones around, if you need to use it, keep it short and put it away safely. Carry cards and cash separately, so you still have something if you are unfortunate enough to be pick pocketed. Don't give money to beggars - many of them are better off than we are!
There has been a lot of coverage in the press in recent months about street violence. That is not the norm. The majority of visitors to London have no problems whatsoever.
Be sensible, be safe and enjoy the day.
