On this, my first trip to London, I'll be staying at the Best Western on Belgrave Road, about 1/2 mile south of Victoria Station. I'll be walking around that area quite a bit, back and forth to Buckingham Palace, the tube station, and some local restaurants and pubs. I understand London is a safe city compared to many others. But are there any areas around the hotel and Victoria station that are not safe to walk through?
Other than the above specific area, are there any other areas of London best to avoid?
