London Underground

shutterstock_288852653Have you got contactless card? You DO NOT need to buy any tickets for London Underground journeys. You can wave your bank card instead and great news is – it costs exactly the same as having an actual Oyster Card (which you would need to purchase first). The cost here will depend on how far you are travelling. Would usually vary from £2.50 – £5 per single journey per person. You can look at the official fare estimator here.

London “Tube Map” is one of the easiest maps to read. Period. You can also be aided by one of the available apps. Simply look for London Tube Map – plenty of free options there. Also worth to grab National Rail App if you plan journey with the use of a train.

This is the only airport that is actually located inside London. This is by far the closest airport to fly to. It does offer some limitations in terms of destinations (it is a relatively small airport) and tends to service higher ticket price flights.
