Hi!

As I explained in my last post, I'm going to stay in a halls of residence in Camden (London) during next july. Do you think that Camden is an unsafe place to live??

Tell me something, experences if you recommend me...

Thanks!!!

ive got 2 friends that live in camden and its no more unsafe than anywhere else.
a friend of mine always goes nightclubbing there to and hasnt ever had a problem.
the thing about most places is you only ever hear the bad points about it.so there may be break ins and stabbings etc.
where dont you get that these days.

its ok - not suburbia mind you- just be aware of things and stay alert. Colourful area and lots to do there but i had a very streetwise friend who got mugged there and he was staying in halls in the complex where you are gonna be. But i think you will be fine as long as you keep your wits about you- camden can be dodgy at times but equally it can be ok with some great experiences! Dont be scared -you'll be fine!

Enjoy your time there!!
