We just got an Oyster card, and then London was at hand. Both buses and the tubes are included as you refill the card. Don't forget to punch your card when you leave the tube station (not the bus). Refilling was easy at most convenience stores and there was a limit of (I believe 7 pounds per day for the... More

Easiest way to get around London quickly! But watch getting trapped in the train doors. Really clean, little corner shops in the stations. Easy to read to underground map!

London has an excellent underground transportation system known as the London Underground-or better known as the "Tube" in London. Some may even call it a "Subway System" if they are from a city that has a similar means of Public Transportation. Nonetheless, the London Underground (The Tube) is very efficient and will get you around London the quickest. However, make... More

Good underground system. The only issue sometimes is that there is a strike, so for 4 days no trains were running down to Central London. People had to take alternative routes.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
