Transport in London
A one-day travelcard lets you use the underground, buses and British rail from 9.30am until about midnight as often as required. London is divided into 8 zones and the fares paid differ according to which zone you are travelling in. Most of the tourist attractions are in zones 1 and 2 so a travelcard just for two zones should be sufficient. It costs £8.80 for an adult peak times and £7.30 for off peak.
A single journey by bus is cheaper and better for sightseeing than the underground, although it may take longer.
One of the simplest and usually the cheapest option is to buy an Oyster card. You have to pay a £5 deposit for the card, but after that you can use buses or the tube as you need, and you will get the best price on what you use. There is a cap how much you can be charged on an Oyster card in one day, that works out 30-40p less than a Travelcard. For more information visit
If a taxi is necessary, then it is generally cheaper and quicker to get a black cab on the street than to call a mini cab. However for long distance trips outside London or to the airport, the black cabs are quite expensive. Expect to pay more than £45 for Heathrow to central London, and £80 for Gatwick to central London. Mini cabs to the airports are generally better value. These can be booked by our receptionists.
