How to Get Around in London

How to Get Around in London
There’s no need for a car in the UK’s capital city, thanks to its vast and efficient transport networks. Whether you want the classic black-cab experience or an intimate glimpse of the city’s hidden highlights on a walking tour, here are our top tips for finding your way while in London.

Public Transport
As the home of the world’s first-ever underground railway, London’s travel network must be experienced to be believed. Conveniently, all public transport—including the Tube, buses, river services, and main-line trains—can be accessed with either a contactless credit or debit card or an Oyster card, which is available from any Underground station.

Black Cabs
For the true London experience, a black-cab journey is a must. Street-hailed services can be expensive, so to save some cash consider booking a private tour. Black-cab drivers are famously knowledgeable about London’s labyrinthine roads, so you can save time ticking off attractions of your choice.

Hop-On Hop-Off Buses and Boats
For independent travelers, hop-on hop-off services offer hassle-free transfer and historical insights without the restrictions of a typical tour. You can zip between London landmarks by classic double-decker bus or river cruiser, or save money with a package that also includes entry to top attractions.

On Foot
Whether you want to sightsee in the historic center or experience the city like a local, walking tours are ideal for immersing yourself in London’s rich history and culture. From the iconic landmarks of Westminster to the street art that adorns the suburbs, there’s something to see on every corner of the buzzing city.
