We do suffer from yob culture and binge drinking and the like, but I believe that we're the most surveilled country in Europe. You can't have the Tories downtreading the poor without a dozen cameras to watch them scrabble in the dirt, eh?
I don't know, because I'm neither a Londoner nor a city-dweller, but I'd guess they'd think that if a stranger is making eye-contact with them in a fast-paced city, maybe they're sizing them up for some reason.
Either that or people are simply too busy rushing around to give the time of day to obvious tourists.
On public transport or in general? People tend to sit on buses and trains in silence, unless they're with someone they know, and I guess that in big cities, people tend to move about more quickly and avoid eye contact, in case someone else thinks that they're being targeted for some reason.
