Visit London

Underground 'tube' trains and buses London has a quick and efficient underground (metro) train 'tube' system, and the famous red 'double-decker' buses. The tube is quicker, especially at rush hours. But you will see more of London from a bus!

Buses and trains are operated by London Regional Transport. Their website includes travel information and other transport links. As well as maps and journey planners, Tube Tourism contains all the necessary information for visitors to London about using the tube and is available in different languages.

They have Travel Information Centres at all four Heathrow Airport terminals, and MAIN Underground stations, where you will find free leaflets and maps for the underground and bus services.

London EyeTourist Tickets After 09.30 am, you can buy the One-Day off-peak Travelcard. The One-Day Travelcard covers you for travel on underground trains and most London buses all day after 09.30 Mondays to Fridays, or anytime weekends and public holidays. Different prices cover different zones of the underground. There is also the One-Day Capital Card, which covers London buses, tube trains, and British Rail trains.

In each case, a single ticket will cover you for the whole day. There are different prices, according to zones (area) of travel. All underground tickets carry a magnetic strip. You place the ticket in the barrier, which then opens automatically. Your ticket comes out again at a hole on top of the barrier. Don't forget to take it out again!

Taxis The famous London black taxis 'cabs' will take you anywhere in London. The taxi 'cabbies' pride themselves on 'The Knowledge' - knowing every street in London. You can stop a taxi in the street if the yellow 'for hire' or 'taxi' sign is lighted. You can also book taxis by phone. If several people travel together, the cost becomes reasonable.

Take in a show

London is known internationally for the range and quality of performing arts. Daily newspapers such as the 'Daily Telegraph, The Times, and London Evening Standard', and weekly magazines 'Time Out' and 'What's On in London', carry listings of performances. Other large cities in Britain have fine performances too, but far less theatres.

Great ShoppingLandon Bus

Along with Paris and New York, London offers probably the best  shopping  experience of any city in the world. Indeed, visitors to the capital are often overwhelmed by the sheer range of goods available.

Photo Quote: I think the best pictures are often on the edges of any situation, I don't find hoto- graphing the situation nearly as interesting as photographing the edges. -William Albert Allard
