Attractions

Transportation

One of the biggest and most organized transportation networks in the world. Divided into 9 zones (but the biggest area is found within zones 1-6), and ticketing is easy as 1-2-3, not only paper tickets and Oyster cards are accepted, but also contactless credit/debit cards with price capping to ensure you won't get ripped off.

Metro

When people think about London and Metro, everyone will call up the red-blue logo of London Underground, also called 'The Tube', based on the shape of the tunnels (and because of this, the carriages). 11 lines, 268 stations and almost 5 million passengers carried every day. Sounds interesting? Get yourself a Tube map on major stations, and get on the next train - but don't forget to 'Mind the gap!'.

Buses

Bus network of London is more dense and complicated than a vascular system of a human body. Even though the classical Routemaster buses can only be found on two lines (bus 9 between Royal Albert Hall and Aldwych, bus 15 from Trafalgar Square to Tower Hill), still red double deckers rule the streets of the city. According to experienced travelers, the best spot is on the top deck, in the front!

Taxi

Classical black cabs are the most unique and most expensive way of traveling in the city. With more than twenty thousand cars in operation, finding an available one won't be that complicated.
