Consider how you will travel to London and the pros and cons of each option. Busy traffic can make driving stressful and parking is difficult and expensive. Remember to check if you need to pay any toll or congestion charges. While travelling by train is also expensive, it gives you the opportunity to either work on the train or enjoy some down time. London has eight main stations that are easily accessible from the rest of mainland Britain. Taking the coach is the cheapest option but can be quite time consuming. If you’re coming from further afield, you may want to fly to one of London’s five airports.
Also consider how you will travel around London. While the Underground is the obvious choice, the bus service is convenient, comfortable and often less crowded. Taxis are the ultimate luxury and can be expensive, although services such as Uber are bringing down the price. https://www.uber.com/. You could also use one London’s river buses or taxis. Sometimes it’s quicker and easier to walk. Use Google maps on your smartphone to find your way around.

You need to pay a £5 deposit for your Oyster card. If you are a regular visitor to London, you may want to hold on to your card, otherwise you can return it and receive a refund.
