Indeed, that's why I said 'potentially'.

Well, yes they do - I've never been refused there being let through the barriers to get a few pictures when not travelling.

It's dodgy because you got mugged there in the 80's?! Things have moved on a bit since then!

I have spent time on both over recent years, Bethnal Green in particular (as well as many other unstaffed suburban stations). I felt in no way intimidated or threatened by anyone - if you mind your own business and stay away from people you will generally be OK. With mass CCTV and trains passing every few minutes, I doubt much will happen.

Queenstown Rd is quite nice, it's not ever that busy so people won't get in your way and it's unmanned so you won't get staff hassling you!
