Slips, trips and falls occur quite frequently. In fact, it’s often simply human error. That being said, when sight seeing around London it is possible to minimise the risk of city break accidents by applying a little caution to your day trips.
If you are planning on sight seeing around London this year, here is some general safety advice to ensure you stay safe while you’re out and about.
How to stay safe when sight seeing around London
The most important thing to remember when sight seeing around London is, like many capital cities, it is extremely busy. This can increase the chance of road-related accidents, whether you are travelling by foot, bike or motor vehicle.
Stay safe by staying assertive while sight seeing around London. Always use pedestrian crossings, follow one-way systems, and catch a cab if you are in any doubt of how to reach your destination. London roads can be extremely difficult to navigate.
Prevent trips and falls on cobbled roads and in busy areas by wearing sensible footwear. When sight seeing around London it is likely that you will need to catch many tubes and walk many miles. Bear this in mind when selecting your shoes.
As with many bustling cities, there is a level of criminal activity in London. Keep personal possessions close, and keep valuables in a hotel safe facility.
