"Utilizing Public Rest Stops" Pickpockets, Beggars, Crime and Scams Tip by ATXtraveler

  Bum on Street
by ATXtraveler

Be weary of sitting down on park benches at some of the more famous landmarks in London, as there tend to be alot of vagrants. Sometimes you have to wonder if paying them money actually helps them, or if it encourages them to be more aggressive at soaking you for money, rather than realizing their plight and working toward a more efficient way of becoming a millionaire. Either way, be careful!

(Also note the exquisite Egyptian metal work on the bench).
