Hello, I've got a trip planned to London for next week and I have a pretty full day time itinerary for my 6 days in the city but I'm at a loss for what to do for my evenings. I'm a young woman and travelling alone. I've been to London before but always with others so I'm looking for some suggestions for things to do at night. I'm not looking to spend too much money. I wouldn't mind spending the evening in a quiet/interesting pub (clubs aren't my thing) as long as I'm not looking at spending an arm & a leg on a drink. I also enjoy live music, so if you have any recommendations for small music venues they would be gratefully appreciated. Basically anything in the evenings that is suitable for one and wont break the bank.
Also, would it be safe to carry my laptop around in my rucksack? I guess I'm just worried about getting into a crowd on the tube and having someone unzip it and help themselves.
Thanks in advance!
