just wanted to know if i'll run into any problems? or had some questions on to where to go where the typical tourists don't go?

Heyyy!!England is a really culturally diverse country, I guess thats what I love about it so much, so I cant imagine you running into any problems because of that...also your age shouldnt be a problem, many people travel the world at 18 so you will be fine!!!
How long are you planning on staying in the UK and what are you hoping to see and do???I would probably say hit the major cities?London, Edinburgh.......but theres also so much to see in the costal places such as Brighton and theres some really beautiful areas such as Derbyshire with pretty countryside!
If you are going to be staying in hostels etc it should be the prefect was to meet people around your age as well as some interesting characters!

Hey you will face no problems at all!!

You will fit in no probs!! obv the tourists see Big Ben etc but as Twinkle says Engalnd is so culturally diverse.
As for London - as you would be in any city be careful - but really its not dangerous at all unless you put yourself in that position...

There's loads of 18 year old travellers in England.

You shoul dtry to vist the lake district and some of our other cities which are just as fasinating, Scotland and Wales as well are beautifull

Good Luck x

Like the other two have said, you'll be fine as long as you're aware and streetwise...
Places to check out include soho and covent garden ( about a 2 minute walk from leichester square underground station). They're brilliant for getting cheap cds and quirky little gifts. They also have loads of yummy sushi or veggie cafes round there.
I'd also advice walking along the embankment, which is just along the river Thames, it leads to the tate modern art gallery wehich is free to get into and MASSIVE! the London eye is also along there, and although its a big tourist attraction its definatly worth the ride in my opinion!
How long are you in England for?
When do you go? if its the summer you could always venture down to Brighton or Bournmouth- lovely little beach towns with good night life!

I think the only problem you'll have is fending off the lads!

Definitely head down to Brighton for the beach, some of the quirkiest shopping and great nightlife. To be honest though, it depends what you want to see in England, there is so much opportunity from rural pubs to london and city-life.
