I took the under tunnel train from Paris to London and then the tube subway to Gloucester a total of about one half hour. It was enjoyable and memorable although it was a rush taking the last train to Gloucester at midnight

If visiting London, ensure you know where you're trying to go and how to get there. Londoners tend to be a bit grumpy (everyone is late for something!) so ensure you stand on the right side of the escalators, don't block the door on the tube, and give up your seat to older people. Bright side: a lot quicker to... More

If you will be in London for five days or more, get an Oyster card. With it, you will not only save money but also have the convenience of just tapping your card to get on and off the underground instead of waiting in lines for ticket machines or clerks. A 7-day unlimited travel Oyster card for zones 1 &... More

Easy and fast travel. Get the oyster card for the week with unlimited tube and bus, making this a no hassel way to travel. Tube trains were fairly clean and most times you only have to wait 5 minutes

It's very accurate, right on time and just comfortable travelling really,... More

London's transport system is going the contactless paymemt route. They say this on the Transport for London website. "You can use your contactless payment card to travel on buses. From 16 September 2014 you'll also be able to use it on Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground and most National Rail services in London." It will be interesting to see how... More

We were in London for 5 days. We purchased a weekly Oyster Card - definitely worth it. A very easy and inexpensive way to get around London. The maps are very easy to follow. Avoid rush hour if possible.
