Hubby and I are going to be in London first week of March for 10 days. We will be staying with my aunt in Harrow who has suggested the we buy the 7 day travelcard for us. I am assuming it's the one below:
Since we are staying in Zone 5 and will be commuting from there, I can see the Adult fare for zone 1 - 6 is £55.60. Not sure if we need to take it till Zone 6 but will leave that for now. We have a few day trips in between, our trip basically starts from 2nd March, so we are in London that day, day trip to Stratford-upon-Avon the next day, 3 days in London, day trip to Canterbury, 2 days London, day trip Bath and then London again, departure flight in the night.
As per what I read, the travel card is for consecutive days, so does it makes sense for me to get this card? Day trips have been planned as per weather conditions at the moment (we aren't coming at the best of time there). We also wanted to take advantage of the 2 for 1 offers (Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, London Dungeon, Madame Tussauds etc) so now am stuck between trying to figure out which makes more sense, travel card or oyster??
We will be checking out the usual sights for all first timers to London and we tend to walk a lot so not sure how much we would use buses and tube except for the commute to and fro from Harrow. Any advice to help us choose between Oyster and Travel cards would be most appreciated. Thank you.
