All of 'tourist' central London is fine, all the time. When I was younger I used to get night buses on my own back from the centre to the East End at 3am fairly regularly, no issues.

As kittyl48 says, all of 'tourist' central London is fine at any time. London is a very safe city.

Safe enough for solo female traveller to go around. You even can walk but you find shops open only around SOHO at the said hours.

Yes, pretty much as safe as Tel Aviv.

The Tube will still be very busy, even at that time of night.

Around theatre closing time there is a second rush hour and the tube is very busy. Perfectly safe for all.

The city is still very much alive at that time of night, and you will be traveling within tourist areas. You should be fine. I have walked around alone at that time of night in tourist areas and felt very safe.

If you will be travelling in the next few weeks and want to see London by night, take the number 9 bus from Knightsbridge to Charing Cross: tfl.gov.uk/gettingaround/maps/buses/pdf/knig… Alight at Charing Cross and take a number 91 towards Crouch End from stop F: tfl.gov.uk/gettingaround/maps/buses/pdf/char…

Alight at stop H in Woburn Place for Russell Square: tfl.gov.uk/gettingaround/maps/buses/pdf/russ…
