London Warnings and Dangers: 667 reviews and 459 photos
Be aware of people offering you very cheap cigarettes, normally outside Tube stations (Whitechapel is particularly bad). Most of the people involved in this are either Eastern European or Chinese (who tend to work Central London more)..
These cigarettes will be one of two things. They are either illegally imported, in which case you run a (slight) cahnce of getting in trouble with the authorities, or else they are completely counterfeit cigarettes in whch case they are even more harmful than ordinary cigarettes, containing frightening levels of chemicals.
Have a look at the linked website, or do your own research.
Believe me, I'm a smoker, and I'm appalled by the amount of duty imposed by the Government on tobacco products, but I just wouldn't touch these things.
