Mobile Staying in London, very nervous.

So we have a long journey from North West England next May down to the Eurostar. We've decided to travel by train day before and stay overnight, then same on way back. We are not regular travellers and never go on train. I'm also very anxious and worry about everything. I'm now concerned for safety in London with young son and the thoughts of walking just 15mins from Euston to a premier inn scares me, as does the size and crowds of the stations themselves. DH would like to look at British Museum while we're there (neither of us have ever been to London) but i worry about getting in a dodgy taxi or on the wrong bus. Don't even get me started on terrorism! Any tips or reassurances please?

It will be fine! Try not to worry about it too much, its very easy to get around London . If you dont fancy doing the tube and are worried about taxis then use Uber! Theyre very good and safe. Once out of the station crowds walking to your hotel shouldnt be a problem! Its busy but manageable. Just take it slow and try not to panic!

We have just come back from 4 days in London. We travelled all over and never saw any trouble and felt safe everywhere we went. There is big police presence too due to the demonstrations but we walked through one to get to Trafalgar Square and it was good natured. Every time we got on the tube we were offered seats (we are past our sell by date) and twice when reading the map people asked if we needed help. Stop worrying. You will be fine.

I feel the same when I go up North

Central London is full of tourists and office workers and very safe. Just take care crossing the roads looking out for changing lights and cyclists and you'll be fine. Avoid the rush hour times for more reasonable volumes on the tube etc. or get a black cab. British Museum is awesome btw

I hate crowds and Im a nervous person generally. The first time I went to London I was terrified but now I go a few times a year and its honestly fine It is busy, and there are the usual rude people who expect you to launch yourself out of their way when theyre walking but for safety it really is much better than I thought. Ive had more trouble when Ive been to Skegness lol
