    The five most dangerous suburbs in London

    London is full of suburbs with areas that could be classed as dangerous and some are more infamous than others. However, where are the most dangerous suburbs in London?


    According to a survey conducted in 2013 using criminal statistics from the home office, the rate of crime in Westminster does not only exceed the average for London but also for the entire nation. A total of 6840 crimes were reported per square km in a year.


    The next most dangerous suburb in London according to the survey is a borough located just north of central London. Their crime rate per square km was significantly less than Westminster. However, this area is not a particular tourist hot spot so the chance of a travel accident compensation claim is lower than other areas of the capital city.

    Kensington and Chelsea

    Two of the most expensive areas of London but unfortunately not exempt from potential crime-related accident claims such as fall injuries. These areas still have their fair share of crime, making it in to the top 5 most dangerous suburbs in London.


    This is a more obvious crime hot spot. It is a major tourist hot spot for shopping, music and lots more. Unfortunately this is one area where you could sustain a fall injury whilst falling victim to petty crime.

    Hackney has only just started becoming trendy and modernised within the past decade so surely the amount of accident claims should have reduced during this progression? Sadly not as Hackney has still got a high crime rate even with the changes.

    As you can see there are many boroughs where a slip, trip or fall could be the least of your concerns. However, this should not put you off visiting our capital city. With so much culture, London is a brilliant day out and if you stay alert and keep your belongings close to you then you will help avoid having to make an accident claim.
